  • BLACK VXR OWNERS

    Is it just me or does black seem to show the dirt and dust the most seems a nightmare i clean it and that night it shows dust etc, is it only bad like this in the winter, and fine in the summer?
    Also seems to show small scratches very easily.

      i love black cars , its the best colour to make a car look aggressive.

      BUT..... you could say i have a bit of ocd and i HATE having my car looking dirty, this is why i will never ever have a black motor.

      believe it or not, white looks clean the longest :?

          Totally agree I love black, and there is nothing wrong with a bit of ocd, I call it therapy :wink:

            All valid points, but I had been in denial about wanting the colour for about last 6 VX cars.....had to do it this time

              This reminds me of when I had a Vectra GSi a few years ago - that was black, I never realised I had OCD until I got that car. I hated the marks, the dust, the dirt etc.

              Cleaning took a full saturday and was of epic proportion and it still got dirty half a mile down the road. It didn't half look good though.

              After that I swore never to own a black car ever again. Then I collected the VXR in april, in black......sometimes you never learn!

                    One thing about black, at least you wont see the tar spots i keep getting on my silver bad boy, i keep finding more and more ,and its starting to annoy me now, keep getting them on all sides of the car and they wont come off even after a good wash, you need to go over it again with tar removal and its very time consuming.................

                        I can't belive it is difficult to wash the tar off. We here in Iceland have lot of different Icelandic products that are super great and it is VERY easy to remove all the tar off (which is so much of here during the winter months). And I have a silver one too.
