What pads to buy?

I have pretty heavy swirl marks on my black e90. Recently got a hold of a Porter Cable 7424XP and would like to detail my car, What pads and chemicals do I need to buy for it?

Preferably from http://www.604autocare.com/buffing-p...acking-plates/
because its local to me. Thanks!

If the swirls are really bad you may need yellow.

As far as chemicals everyone has their opinions. I like Meguiars 105 and 205. Or Menzerna 106, 203, and PO85RD

holy are the compounds expensive.

8oz is good enough. I've used menzerna power finish po203 on my black sapphire and it took many passes. Next time I would use M105 or the menzerna SIP(1500).
