They look the same to me. I got mine from Clean Your Car on the interweb and iTools similar to these machines. Good look with which ever one you buy. Using a DA gets rid of more swirls scratches and water marks than I thought it would.

I buy my supplies when I need stuff from www.cleanyourcar.co.uk they have a great range and deliveries are always quick and well packed. I don't think there's a standard colour for pads ( I could be wrong) I have orange/yellow for paint correction Green for polishing and Blue for waxing. Look up Detailing world on the interweb it's a great forum for car detailers you can learn a lot from the peeps there. Meguiars also have a great web site with lots of instructional videos showing you how to detail a car.

I can often spend all day cleaning polishing waxing buffing my Focus. I've had the comments off neighbours "you'll wash that away" and "you won't have any paint left on that" I'm by far from being an expert but if you have any questions just ask
