Very few areas of auto detailing are filled with as much bad information as auto buffers! This one area of car detailing sparks more opinions and controversy than any other area of surface car care.
The problem arises as guys move from basic car owners with moderate interest in their cars, to guys who have now raised to the status of car enthusiast. There is forever growing communities of car enthusiasts in general, as well as growing communities centered around a specific car or truck. Like a diseased herd, these communities become infected with opinions based on bad information and limited experience. Within a single community you would be lucky to find one or two people with opinions actually based on any real world experience; most of the other opinions are simply repeated opinions from other inexperienced people.
I am what is called a results driven person. This means I don't like getting bogged down by the process of things. I know what I want and want to get there the quickest way possible. Just like I don't want to spend all day detailing my car just for the sake of killing an entire day 'cause I have nothing better to do!
I want to produce amazing results in the shortest time and effort possible so I can enjoy driving my perfectly detailed car around, showing it off and doing whatever it is I want to do in the moment. With all this said, some of you may enjoy visiting website after website in search of the so-called "best auto buffer", reading review after review written mostly by guys who have no business offereing and opinion. I myself prefer to find someone I can trust and take advice from him so I can simply get what I want and move on. For all of those people like myself, I offer the following link that will shorten the process of deciding upon a quality car buffer that represents the winning combination of features for yourself, not someone else.
Many people are influenced by one of the most widely spread rumors of car polishing and the use of high speed buffers. It seems that the idea of using a "high-speed buffer" on car paint automatically sounds scary to most people and therefore people naturally buy into the much spread rumor of the dangers of using high-speed polishers on car paint. Add to this many inexperienced so called "professional detailers" who actually promote themselves as being "special", "unique", or a true "expert" because they never touch a car with a high-speed car buffer. The fact is that anyone who claims that polishing a car by hand is the only way to do it can only be guilty of any or all of the following:
Just like so many other areas of life, power tools exist for a reason; they offer power, speed, and consistency that your body never could. Just as the proverbial saying goes, "Guns don't kill,; people kill". Well I will add to this, "Buffers don't destroy paint; inexperienced and foolish people destroy paint". It is the inexperienced or foolish person behind a car polisher that is going to be the problem. Ask any true expert paint finisher or detailer, you will never achieve the same results by hand that are possible with a car buffer!
Unlike most of the regurgitated information and opinions that circulate the Internet, my car buffer reviews are based on one critical point only:
Real World Experience. period!
It is one thing to have purchased a car polisher or buffer and "play" with it a few times on your own car, and then offer your "professional" opinion on some car or detail forum; entirely different to speak from a position based on decades of car polishing experience at a professional level.
