    Default recommend me a DA

    My birthday next week and the missus has said she'd get me a DA polisher, bless her.

    So which one should i go for and what are the best deals out there at the minute. Car needs quite a lot of work, the plan will be to use Megs UC on it then PBBH then wax and polish.

    What polisher and pads will be best for this? and should all products be used with DA. I know the Kestrel 6 pro is a popular choice but unsure on what pads i'll need to do the best job.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Cheers

    On advice from people on here and detailing forums, I went for the Kestrel DAS6 pro, the heavier motor and double length lead make it significantly better to use that the staandard DAS6. I got it from cleanyourcar.co.uk, and am using the chemical guys hexologic pads, white, black and red, as my paintwork isn't bad.
    You could try CYC, or autobrite as well as ebay and the other detailing/car product sites for the best deal.
