    I just got a silver subaru and I'd like to start building up a basic detailing kit for it. Is subaru paint hard or soft? Any suggestions on product?

    Soft, soft, soft. Meguiars #205 or Optimum Polish II with a 5.5" orange cutting pad ought to work pretty well.

    so true and it chips easily! Definitely look into getting the front clear filmed or it's gonna start chipping terribly!

    Given that the paint is soft, will an orbital buffer work for removing swirls and polishing? Or should I still look into getting something more powerful?

    PC 7424 XP or a Meguiars G110 v2 at least. The orbitals you see at Pep Boys aren't polishers, they are wax spreaders.
