    Car polishing machine

    Hi There

    Can you recommend me any car polishing machine, I have never used one before and my concern is how to avoid this circular moments in that damages the paint as seen in the picture below? Is there any machine that avoids this?

    Thanks

    A machine polisher is there to remove those kind of swirl marks, it won't cause them.

    For a beginner like yourself, a random orbit polisher is best, like a Meguairs G220 (what I use) or a Kestral DAS-6. Check cleanyourcar.co.uk for kits inc the polisher + pads and polish.

    Otherwise you can get a rotary polisher, will generally be cheaper to buy but have a higher risk of burning through your paint when using it.
