    Same... I want to learn. So I've only put the forum research in. Verdict seems to be the Das 6 V2 is pretty good. But if you can afford it, to go for the pro version. It has a more powerful motor and can therefore be used for paint correcting as well as applying waxes/polishes.

    This is what I use twice a year for full paintwork detail - DAS 6 v2 - and can say it's a cracking DA polisher, there may well be better units out there but it's value for money is great.
    The trick is to let the machine do the work and you just guide it across your paintwork - lots of vids online ;)

    Thanks for the advice guys. Im only getting one because i got cash for my birthday and instead of wasting it i thought id get something useful. I have never really been overly impressed with the paint finish on my car since I’ve had it. Polish and wax make it look good but not great

    I have a meguirs dual action.
    Do my cars twice a year with it.
    Meguirs compound, claybar, poorboys blackhole then finish off by hand with meguirs liquid wax.
    Just take your time first time you use it and you’ll be fine.

    I have a DAS6 non pro. Had it many years and have done about 7 or 8 full car corrections with it as well as applying waxes and sealants and doing minor swirl removal. I find it powerful enough since really you shouldn't be pressing hard enough that it strains the motor anyway.

    They are fine unless the paint is hard and practically matt from years of abuse. The pad and product you use are really the defining factors in how quick or good the correction is.

    I personally prefer a rotary polisher, used one for years in my old job and hobby just a great bit of kit. The latest one is from Milwaukee tools

    Rotays are better in some ways, but its easier for a beginner to damage the paint with one.

    When I was taught, I wasn't allowed to touch a customers car. I was told how easy it was to burn paint etc and then allowed to polish my own bloody car
