    Okay, then get the Harbor Freight DA if you don't want to spend too much, the Griots if your budget is $150 or so, and the Rupes 21 if you are feeling rich. Because its $400. But its also all kinds of awesome.

    Can't get those links to work.

    Brand new black car, is there a polish/glaze that would be good to use (by hand) or is that more for correcting scratches and stuff later on?

    Currently just doing ONR + OCW.

    Black? You brave.

    If you are feeling spendy, I'd look at the Optimum Zen Tool. Similar design to the Rupes, same 21 mm throw, plus a 900 watt motor vs a 500 watt and both a 5" and 6" backing plate for $300.

    I honestly wouldn't bother doing anything by hand on a black car, too much chance of marring from your hand and finger tips. ONR and OCW are fine for now. Go through the EDU on how to buff, all my youtube videos are linked in it.
