    I received an invite to the M3/4 manufacturer closed room site. Looking forward to what exactly BMW will do with these two models. Hopefully Cadillac will counter with something better.

    I saw a high quality aftermarket spray pure white CTS once before. I ended up following it for 5 minutes because I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me(It was only a base model, so my brain was cranking on why spend $5K on paint with a base CTS) . It was infact a real pure white car through, and it was marvelous, and I whole heartly agree. White Diamond is not WHITE. It's pearl, a 10+ year old pearl that reminds me of old, or (worse) Acura's.

    White does the best job of accentuating body lines...it's a cruel irony that there's such great and unique bodywork to these cars and it's not available.

    White is absolutely the best color for showing all the damage driving does to it.

    I think black is much worse showing wear and tear.

    Black is the absolute best color if you enjoy hand polishing your car every third day.

    I thought this would be the car that I finally did a full correction on.

    It's not. Jet Black paint is simply way too finicky for me to tolerate spending 30 hours on and then be right back where I started a month later. I didn't even bother finishing the half-finished front fascia. I haven't even waxed it since I bought it.

    I've been pleasantly surprised with the black diamond tri-coat; it has lots of pop as a black colour in anything but direct sunlight where all the flake then takes over. And that same flake very effectively masks like dust coating and minor spider-webbing that's just drove me nuts on previous solid black cars I've owned.

    I've always been a huge of bright white on cars and was disappointed Cadillac didn't offer a white other that that awful "off-white"...ended up going with the dark blue, which I really like, but still can't believe they don't have a bright white.
