Spotless? What the hell is that????? ;-)
Seriously, I can second RichC's Meguiar's recommendation wholeheartedly. I used Zymol for two years, and it looked stunning right after you finished. One wash (yes, with car wash, not the nasty stuff) and all traces of Zymol were gone. Mequiar's looks as good and lasts much longer. I'm using the "Show Car Glaze" (#7) and "High Tech Yellow Wax" (#26) Dirt doesn't seem to stick as bad either.
Black does show dirt better than most colors, but it's really not all that bad. This is my second black car, and you just have to wash a little more often. You can use a "California Duster" type thing for dusty stuff, like pollen.
Just think of it as an oppertunity to spend more quality time with your car. :)
ZS: Black is the fastest color!
