Bought this as a Christmas gift for myself and have loved it. It's helped me make the jump from just washing and waxing to really detailing my car. The kit has all the pads you need to go from compounding to polishing to waxing. I added Chemical Guys VKIT (32, 34, 36 and 38) Polishing set and the combo helped remove 97% of the surface scratches on my 2007 Infiniti, which is black and shows every defect. The polisher is powerful, simple to understand and easy to use. The pads a high quality and the pad cleaner makes clean up much easier. Note: there aren't too many instructions for how to use the polisher in the kit, so check out Chemical Guys YouTube channel for TONS of instructions and advice.
