    Building work next door....mine looks filthy all the time. It's orient (read dull) blue. Unless it's freshly washed and waxed.....it looks pretty dull....I had a company 320d in silver and that could do thousands of miles and still looks pretty good through the dirt....

    Thats the trouble with dark cars... they look awesome when washed and polished but show every bit of dirt/water runs etc... Its always put me off getting a black/dark car cos i no how fussy i am and it would drive me mad!

    At least black looks sleek.....electric blue and lighter blues are fine....orient blue...dull....only bought it cos it was a bargain price for the condition, options and miles.... Changing the chrome window surrounds to black improved it a lot though.....

    Same problem here, living rurally near a lot of dirty/muddy roads and banks I just pressure wash the car once a week, not worth doing anymore. Birds always seem to poo on my car several times within 24 hours after a wash anyway!

    I bought a new BMW in Barbera Red, and wished I had picked another colour. Fantastic after cleaning, but after every two days it looks filthy - 'stuff' blown from trees I think. Extremely annoying to say the least - but I am thinking by having to clean properly once a week will keep me in tune with the overall state of the car and force me to keep it looking good - and I have to do it with buckets! No pressure washers or hoses allowed in the flats where I live - bloody hard work!
