To my fellow black car owners, I hope you understand my pain. Honestly, I hope everyone understands ALL us black car owners’ pain.
So it’s no news that black paint is a chore to keep up with and shows a lot of swirl-marks, dirt, etc. But my lord, I didn’t know what I was in for.
I’ve had my car over a year but with the timing it only went thru 1 summer/spring and 2 harsh winters, and obviously salt in the winter makes every car very dirty especially black. I didn’t care much though but still regularly wash every 2 weeks to get salt off my car.
But damnit, now with all this pollen in the air my car will not stay cleaner for more than an hour (not kidding).
I just washed it and did a spray wax on Tuesday and it’s ALREADY DUSTY LIKE I DROVE IT THRU THE SAHARA DESERT. ONTOP OF THIS, I park in my garage!!!!!!! I’VE TAKEN THE CAR ON 2 SHORT 20 MINUTE DRIVES TO GET COFFEE, A QUICK JOY RIDE, AND THEN BACK HOME. UGH.
If you’ve ever maybe contemplated getting a black car, don’t (my opinion). At least for a daily driver. Looking for a black weekend / luxury cruiser? Sure, I guess, if you really want it.
To people who already own black cars, preferably on their dd cars, would you ever buy another black car?
My next car will definitely be anything BUT black… most likely gray, silver, or white (again). But DAMN black looks so good when it’s clean :'(
