Looks tops. That car is 10 years old and still looks good! ;)

Do you not bucket wash before and after claying? Foam is great, but doesn't get everything off by itself in my experience.

The car wasn't very dirty but in any case we rinsed off using the power washer. I think the foam works very well as you can see the dirt coming off after a while.
