Well, keeping ANY color paint clean in the PNW is a huge pain in the ass!

I love the look of a clean black vehicle. I used to own a black truck, and it looked great when it was clean. 5 minutes later however..... If I own another black vehicle, it will probably be matte black.

I've got Sparkling Graphite, and it shows dirt too. Not as bad as black, but easier than I thought it would. But I'm not a "detail the car every other day" kind of guy, so I OK with it being a little dirty every so often.

Buy the color you love, unless you are a "detail freak."
