    Either one package looks good. With the Tropicare you might need a buffer to be able to use the swirl cutter more effectively
    With the detailers paradise bundle, you may add their Prima Swirl if you want to do some paint correction, again, having a buffer is highly recommended...

    No. What I meant to say is that there are certain products that are designed to work best with a buffer as it's the case for Swirl Cutter for example
    Being that your car is NBM, I would recommend the Prima Amigo, and top it with the Prima Epic...

    -Wash
    -Clay
    -Wash or a IPA 50/50 wipedown to remove old coat of waxes
    -Slick, just enough to clean up IPA 50/50 residual (when not polishing)
    -Amigo
    -Epic

    IPA 50-50 is basically an equal mixture of water and Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA)
    I like to use distilled water as opposed to tap water, though the latter would work fine too
    This is used in detailing when you want to wipe off excess oil from compounds, and to also be able to see your work in progress when you're removing defects, etc...

    For this you'd need to get yourself a spray bottle from your local hardware store...
