People always complain about black

But red is hard to keep looking good too. If you don't keep up with it, it looks pink. Oh well, she looks good when clean and waxed though.

What do you mean? That the red paint deteriorates very fast or that it looks bad when dirty? Im ordering one red 325i Touring -wagon-.

Does the paint on black cars oxidize or degrade quicker since it absorbs light more (hence, gets hotter)?

it probably does a little bit quicker. Im pretty sure that cars with metalic paint oxadize quicker/degrade quicker due to the metal flakes in the car absorbing heat.

our paint is clearcoated. oxidation in cars normally happens after many years and happens more often on non clearcoated cars (which till this day are in production). for one to start seeing oxidation, especially on a clearcoated car, it would take well more than a decade on a neglected car.

and even then the oxidation would easily be removed with klasse aio... up keep u're car and never worry about thes things again.

It looks pink when it's dirty. But it's pretty wicked when clean
