    I'd be getting one no questions asked If it was cordless.

    Looks like a great system to me. 3M has always had top-notch body shop supplies.

    When watching the videos, they instruct to use no additional pressure besides the machine weight when compounding and polishing. Even though that, or very little pressure, has always been my process, this is the first time I've ever seen it as a formal recommendation. I've never been one of those 10-15 lbs. of pressure guys.

    wait till you see the price of the pads/liquids, it's not surprising though being a product of 3M...

    You and I both.

    I was surprised when Rupes used to say that too. Using pressure like that seems counterintuitive to me, even though many great detailers get excellent results with it. Many roads lead to Rome.
