When cleaned, polished and waxed, a black car can look so amazing.

Unfortunately though, you can see all imperfections with black and you have to clean it very regularly.

I would probably recommend that a black car should be fully detailed maybe once a year to keep the paint looking as good as possible.

Titanium Silver is awesome!! I love the look and the easy maintenance. My wife's black MB C300 is beautiful but I spend so many hours keeping it up its crazy.

+1 Agreed. It may look blah at times but other times it reflects colors around it and looks real neat. My favorite thing about this color is scratches and flaws are so easily missed/overseen. I will buy this color again and again. It just looks classy and so German.

Black when it's clean followed very closely with White. I'll pick white if the owner hates cleaning their car routinely.

Guess i'm not the typical bimmer owner because the barbera red is the only color i like. It stands out from all the basic boring colors of every bmw you see on the road 100 times a day.

I used to drive a red car for 4 years, didn't enjoy it at all. Got pulled over doing speed limit too many times.

I love my Montego blue! It took months of searching autotrader daily to find one exactly the way I wanted it and I had to drive 6 hours each way to make the purchase, but it was worth it!

My E30 was red. I only got pulled over in it once, but I could never keep the car dent free. No matter how safely and cautiously I parked, it always had new dings and showed signs of being molested...had the emblems pryed off and what have you. That, and those behind me constantly tailgated me. Never again!

I really don't consider the Barbera a "red" car...it's more wine (burgundy) than anything else. Actually barbera is an italian wine. But so far I've only been pulled over once for speeding buy a known ticketwriter.

A "known ticketwriter"?

You mean a cop?

Mine is sparkling graphite grey and I love it but alpine white with red interior is the best looking combo colors ever known to man!!! I would love to swap my black interior for the red.

Montego blue which is why I chose it. And it had a purplish color to it in the right sunlight
