    Thanks, I ended up ordering from autopia.com (free FedEx shipping), just wish amazon had it in stock, would've saved $30, but wouldn't get it until sometime next year (all they would tell me is mid-2013 on the phone). Can't wait to try it out.

    Re: DA Power System

    Mike Stoop I wonder if there is a list of recommended drills ? Im placing an order for this deliver to Indonesia but i cant find reference to recommended drills.. Is wattage an issue to cutting power as well ? As i've found that wattage is everything when it comes to da and rotary.. I had a rotary that bogs down since it only took 700 watts and powerful da usually takes more watts... I am concerned since looking at the 2500 rpms dewalt drill in the US like dwd110 that drills is rated 120v and 8amps which means 960watts.. The drills i found here shopping online though rated at 2600,2800,3000 rpms takes a mere 500 watts.. Im afraid if rpms are not everything that counts can you advice thanks ?

    Now I only waxed so far, will try defect removal over the holiday. However it did not seem like bogging down was going to be an issue.

    We don't have a list of recommended drills, but since you're using small pads with this tool you can get away with a lower watt rating here than you can with a tool that has to spin a larger pad. For example: while you'll be hard pressed to find a cordless drill that will deliver enough power to correct defects, even the inexpensive 18v Harbor Freight drill that I have is more than sufficient for applying a paste wax with this tool. It doesn't take a whole lot more than that to keep a cutting or polishing pad spinning for defect removal. We would think that a 500 watt drill capable of 3000 rpm would do the job.

    Possible to post recommended drill RPMs for individual task, eg Compounding, Polishing and Waxing?

    Most drills dont have an RPM gauge, so I dont know if that will really work.

    As Mat points out, it's not easy to find a drill with an RPM gauge so we don't specify settings for each step. It's more about pressure and speed over the paint that varies from step to step with this tool. For example, when compounding you'll want to move pretty slowly and apply moderate pressure to the pad. Polishing can be done with faster speed over the paint and less pressure, while waxing can be done quite quickly and with minimal pressure. In all cases you can run the drill at full speed - and unless you have a lockout on the power trigger of the drill, trying to feather the speed can be quite fatiguing and we find it's easier to just hold the trigger fully depressed.

    Re: DA Power System

    I got my local car care store to call their meguiars rep. and ask about the power system. He said the rep. had no idea of any such product and that we would not be getting it here in Australia. Looks like we don't get any of the good stuff here. I was looking forward to using this... any idea on what i can do?

    ps. i have looked at various sites in the US and UK but all of them charge obscene amounts for shipping to australia
