I would definitely recommend our new Swirl Killer 15mm LT polisher......
smooth running, comfortable design and what I really like is a 25' cord.
All the pads and polishes are color coded, Orange with orange, White with White and Blue with blue.

I had some good weather yesterday and decided to give my new Swirl Killer 15 out on my 2013 ZL1 convertible.
I already have the Flex polisher, but I was eager to use the SK.
The car was already in decent shape so all I used was the paint finishing polish.
I LOVE THIS THING !!!!

It was a pure joy to use, seemed a bit lighter than the Flex and very easy to control.
The only comment I'd make is in regards to the position of the trigger lock button. With it on the side of the handle where it's easy to press with your thumb, it also makes it easy to accidently press it when holding onto the handle and sweeping the SK back and forth. Perhaps move the button to the bottom of the handle?

Other than that, I think my Flex will stay in the tool chest and gather dust. The SK will be my main tool from now on.!

THANKS ADAM's !!!!

Adam-----On my 2011 I can clean the inside back window. But how the heck do you clean the lower part of the back window where the brake light is? I can't find anything thin enough to get down in there with a cloth.

I custom made my own (kinda on accident) using a yard sale sign from Lowes and a couple binder clips. I will try and locate it and post a picture
