I'd suggest this kit. This new 3D polisher can correct better. I now use the Griot's to apply waxes.

Tom do you have any warranty info on that polisher? How would you compare that between the griots as far as performance / correcting? Thanks again

I have 2 griots, 1 pcxp, and the 3D polisher.

If your concern is correcting, the 3D polisher will win hands down. Just more torque.

We didn't want to come out with a machine that wasn't better. You know?
