Re: Just how bad is Brilliant Black for the OCD inclined?

The last car I owned was a newly ordered 1987 Buick Grand National (they only came in black). T-Type's don't count.

After a wash by hand, by the time I got done drying off the car, within 10 minutes, it was starting to collect dust. But for that 10 minutes, it did look fabulous. Well, that's a bit exaggerated.

Since then, I've only owned white vehicles. I had a 2000 WJ Limited in Stone White. So naturally for my 2012 WK2, I only considered Stone White. To me, while the other colors offered are nice, Stone White is the best.

Re: Just how bad is Brilliant Black for the OCD inclined?

Side note re Brilliant black - I imagine the Overland comes with the stainless steel "grand cherokee" door sill guards. For those that don't have them I'd highly recommend getting them. There is a lot of paint down there waiting to be scratched. I already have a few and the brilliant black really shows these. I'll be ordering them today.

Re: Just how bad is Brilliant Black for the OCD inclined?

I have had two black autos and will never own another one, just too hard to keep looking nice. The last three owned have been white and I love my white Overland.

Re: Just how bad is Brilliant Black for the OCD inclined?

Clean black vehicles look awesome but don't stay that way for long.

Another vote for Stone White here (personal preference).

How hard is the clearcoats on the Jeeps? I know that makes a difference in getting swirls too.

Re: Just how bad is Brilliant Black for the OCD inclined?

Someone please answer the question above, as I am interested in knowing.

I know GMC and BMW have hard clear coats. Honda, Infiniti, and Toyota have fairly soft clear coats.

Re: Just how bad is Brilliant Black for the OCD inclined?

I love black...I also love to clean my cars. It is extra work as all the other posts say but boy it sure looks sharp. I used to live off of a dirt road so our rides were always dirty - have since moved so I won't be as dusty as before. If it's a color you like and you don't mind spending some extra time with it - go for it. I just ordered a Sahara....black. : )
