    Can't recommend using a drill to buff your car, lose control and you could burn into the paint's finish, it'll look very bad. A buffing wheel gives you two handed control at a 90 degree angle and even then you could still burn into it if your not careful

    Buffing with a drill gives swirl marks no matter how careful you are. Best to do it by hand.
