My 5 year old silver bimmer looks brandnew compared to my bro's 8 month old black civic. i just laugh at him when i see him washing and waxing every otherday to keep it looking clean when i only have to clean mine every week or two. that said, i dont think id ever get a black car. before my bimmer i had a darkish blue ford expedition and that was hard enough to keep clean. black, never.

My Ride: ...Is slow.
No way.Black cars look great in the shade or at night but in direct sunlight every little scratch or dent becomes visible.
My next ride will probably be a Silver Gray M3.

Once you go black... it hard to go back.

Mine is black, on black (with matte aluminium silver trim), on black.

I'll never buy a black car again...I had a black M3 and then I move out to Vegas in June...NOT GOOD! The car was literally on fire during the entire summer... I picked up a silver TT and I think the next car I buy will be white (I'm fallin in love with that color more and more)...

My Ride: a bucket on wheels
I said I wouldn't get a black car after owning my first and here I am driving another black car. When the car is clean, nothing looks better (Specially at night). However, it doesn't take long for it to look like crap.

I am sick of it now, it is a pain in the ass to keep even anywhere close to clean.

Well i stated my opinion, and to me my opinion is the gods truth and nobody and can sway me.

I think BMW is better then Mercedes
I think the 3 series is better then the 5 and 7 series.
And I think 4 Door BMWs only look good in black. I mea some silver cars look Ok but it just doesent compare to black. Nothing looks as good as a black car, nothing gets more hype on first sight. Black Breaks necks. Oh I didnt mean that 2 door bimmers looked bad in black, I think 2 door bimmers can pull off other colors but for 4 door bimmers, especially the 3 and 5 series.......they need to be black.



As for the topic I own a black car, I wash it 2-3 times a week and i take pleasure in doing so.

i have a black 330i with black interior. I have to reiterate what most other have already said.... black is at first a pain to maintain until you master it, but nothing beats it. I have never received compliments (many) on my cars till this color.

Although black is a pain to keep clean. I still love the color, When you see a clean black car you KNOW the owner takes good care of it.

Carbon Black ftw.
