looking on this forum and others decided on these items

Makita 9227 (1st time polisher is rotatory bad to learn with?)
Menzerna Super Intensive Polish PO83
Menzerna Final Finish PO85RD
with Uber Orange Pad 5.5 inch medium polish pad
& Uber Blue Pad 5.5 inch final polish pad

P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel
P21S Total Auto Wash

Swissvax Glaicer
Swissvax Paint Rubber - Optimum Instant Detailer & Gloss Enhancer LUBE
Swissvax Cleaner Fluid

I think somewhere I seen its better to apply swissvax by hand, but I might be wrong

Im still kinda undecided on making this investment I know these products are good and will improve my cars paint but also my car is white and you can put 1 hour or 8 hours into a white car most of the time it wont look that different.
You can apply Swissvax Cleaner Fluid with the machine but the wax needs to be applied by hand. According to Menzerna, you don't really need to go through the progressive steps with the Super Intensive polish on a white car. If you feel the need, you can go straight from SIP or PO85RD and then SV cleaner fluid and wax.

If your car doesn't require SIP, you can just start with PO85RD which is what I do most of the time unless there are a lot of water spots or swirl marks I need to address.
