Black is a terrible burden to keep clean and shiny! But when it IS clean and shiny...it is in a class of its own. Though I decided to really go a different direction with my 2.3, and went Bright Red...for the really sporty look...my last two cars were Shiny Black (98 Eclipse Turbo GST and 96 Talon Turbo Tsi)!!
I am afraid that if there had been a black 2.3 on the showroom floor to look at, it is at least a 50-50 proposition that I would have picked black...detailing devils and all.
And by the way, judging by all of the time devoted to washing, waxing, detailing, etc on this board...Z-people must find every color VERY difficult to keep clean ENOUGH!
Good luck. You chose a great color...it is worth the extra elbow grease.
