Default Black

So after owning my first black vehicle, for about 2 weeks now, i have noticed it is impossible to keep it clean
It is my absolute favorite color for a car, but trying to keep a black car clean in winter is damn-near impossible.
I have a feeling i'm going to be blowing my winter car-wash budget :P

alright sounds like a plan. Park the 4x4 for the winter, and drive the car. Then come summer park the car and drive the 4x4. :P
