I bought rotary makita with buffing kit for 500$ from Bodyshop supplier I do my 745li myself takes a bit of time as it is a big car but it's worth it. I've done 6 step detailing on my car 3 times already and my paint is brand new. Swirl free at all times. Detail shop would charge crazy money for it and I don't trust ppl with my car. I recommend buying one and DIY
But u should be very careful with rotary as u can burn ur paint. But trust me no other polishing tool will give u same result as good makita or dewalt with proper woolpads and chemicals
And yes darker colors will show more imperfections I've done my friend Acura rdx 2010 black dammit it looked like mirror after I did it. Same with my friends BMW 125 even took deep scratches on his hood that he wanted to get repainting but that involved some wet sending
