Avoid polishing as much as you can, it basically shaves off clearcoat, giving the appearance of a smooth surface.

Unless your one who spends 2-3 hours detailing your vehicle on a regular basis, while being going the extra mile (foam gun, 2 bucket method etc etc), swirls are inevitable.

Some people use glaze/sealants with filler properties to hide swirls, keep polishing for a few years down the line if you feel your paint showing signs of oxidation.

Also, do a bit of research on clear bra's, make sure you wont run into issues like uneven paint fade / wear down the road, especially based on the region you live...
This just isn't quite true, at least anymore. With modern polishing systems, you'd almost never remove enough clear to be a problem. With a rotary, yes. DA, no.

Agreed, but only if one is experienced enough..Porter cable 7274xp seems to be the way to go...

I think with the exceptions of Flex and Rupes. Flex is like a hybrid rotary anyways, and I already know of one person who burnt through paint using the Rupes 21.
