What is the model number of this Turtle Waxer. I have never used it personally.

Just keep in mind. Anyone can put swirls into a car using any machine if it is not used properly. If you have a car you don't mind "experimenting" on, I would do that before putting it on the Bimmer.

Don't push down on it.
And hold it at an angle when you remove the wax. Keeps the surface temp of the pad down.

And clean the pad off every so often by holding a rounded flatblade screwdriver against it. The swirls are put there mostly by people not cleaning the wax crust off of the pad.

Hope this helps.
