Hm. Let's see if this works. Here's a pic I took of my STS after I washed it. Looks nice n shiny as well. I LOVE black right after a good wash. But 10 min after driving it, it becomes a pain in my ass again

Looks good, too bad there appears to be damage on the back left bumper cover. :(

I too have a black car, stays black for about 50ft / 30seconds after a wash. (my monte)

No damage anywhere. Just the reflection.

Good to know. I was like the car looks spotless then saw the bumper and was like oh no

I thought that same thing. Then I buffed mine one day. It looks just as good.

I've had my first black car for almost four years. It looks great when clean but shows dirt quickly; even when not at their best black cars outshine many others. Drab is like it sounds; even when clean.

LOL, I've watched that commercial and everytime I think...I love when my car looks like that....someone really worked hard on that one....
clearly a twisted mind, the rest of the world prob doesn't even notice I think....so I'm happy this thread shows it isn't just me!!

Yep. Nothing more kind to the eyes than a freshly washed, black, car. Until you drive it home from the car wash, then it's like....I thought I just washed this thing! What the hell?!

Black Magic does seem to repel the dust plague.

I may need to look into that. My car sits in the dustiest parking lot ever during the day. Gets filthy way to easy

I wash mine twice a week and detail it myself about every two to three weeks. I use the Black box by turtle wax and after every wash use the black spray also. It looks pretty damn close to the car in the advertisement all the time. I also just it daily with a California Duster.

I have a silver car and even when it is I filthy, from 10 feet back she shines like I just washed her. The wheels show the dirt. However, I usually wash my car once a week, use Turtle Wax ICE once every two months, Clay and power buff in the summer, and she SHINES so pretty. Black, on the other hand is beautiful when clean, but that is so short lived.
