x2.

It's why I hate black and white cars, rather go for Silver or some color along the lines of it that can "hide" dirt.

silver is probably the best at hiding everything.

that and easiest to color match if you can't find the exact touch up paint you need.

if you always have sealant or wax on those touchless washes will be able to clean it pretty easily.

Not cheap, but a good investment to protect your paint.

I take ours to my dealer ( FREE ). They run it thru a washer that does a pretty good job. As long as they use clean towels, the job looks good. I had all kinds of problems getting all the glue that held the plastic film sheets on that protected the paint and wheels off and it collected dust. Finally after much scrubbing by me, and 2 previous returns to my dealer for them to do nothing more than run it thru their washer ( no help whatsoever ) it all came off. I have paint protectant film on the forward facing surfaces...that helps with gravel/rocks/bugs.
