makita rotary buffer ????

Hi Greg,

I restore glass professionally, and I use a water-fed makita rotary buffer. It has a variable speed of 2000-4000 rpm. I am very skilled in polishing glass, I understand how to move the buffer and maintain enough polish to avoid burning the glass.

Is this rpm range safe for polishing car paint? -or should I pick up a PC DA. I have an old truck I can practice on before I take it to the BMW, but I figure you would know best. Thanks for your expertise!
