Just buy a buffer at an auto parts store and get to work.

just be careful if you do it your self you have to watch out with those circle buffers they sometimes leave swirrel marks in your paint so go slow they tend not to show up as much if you keep the speed down good luck

Always do it myself for all my cars. Start with good hand wash and dry. Then clay bar. Then hand wax and buff. About 5-6 hours per car, but the results are awesome. And it is usually done once every 6 months. Plus, it gets me outta the house for bit.

I doubt that for $80 they are doing a quality buff and wax. Get yourself a package of clay and clean the paint. You can buy a good buffer at many sites, try griot's garage. After cleaning and sealing the paint use a product like turtle wax ice or other another synthetic polish. Your initial investment will cost more than $80, but will last much longer.

Go hit up mothers' website(mothers.com) they offer a 3 step process. The pre-wax cleaner, sealer and glaze, and carnauba wax as the final step. I have a clay bar that I do first and foremost then the other steps. Like its been mentioned before it takes a few hours per car but if you have a polisher and some masking tape(for any plastic) you can cut about a 1/3 of your time off.
