    Dealerships have been known to sell products that are not the best item for a car for a long time. Headlight plastic and paint are two very different surfaces.

    Great finish all clean. You will be a slave to it keeping it that way.

    Ohhh nononono theres nothing wrong with a black WRX. Except for the fact that Subaru paint sucks and, like Sasquatch said, unless you're baby it you're gonna get nasty swirls.
    A quick "WRC" Google search shows 0 black cars. Wonder why....

    I agree, black looks awesome and I loved my black wrx but I daily drive my car and it only gets washed once every 2-4 weeks. My silver wrx looks cleaner after 3 weeks of not washing it than my black one did after 3 days.

    I've had many different finishes / colors on my cars over the years. Silver is the easiest to keep clean looking imo.

    Not really. It's all about the finish care the owner of the car puts into it.

    The darker the finish, the harder it is.

    Very true, but I find silver and other lighter colors are more common, but everything looks good in black.
    Then again, blue stands out.
    But it does suck needing to wash your car every two days

    I love my MBP bugeye. I'm resigned to the fact that it's a 10 year old car that gets driven every day. It's not a trailer queen, so it bears some battle scars as such. Sure the clear coat is peeling in a couple places, and it's got its fair share of scratches, but I've got bigger things to worry about.

    I used to feel this was as well but after owning this car (ice silver metallic) I really like how it shows the body lines very well, especially at night under the lights. I'm very happy with the looks of this color for the little care it takes to look decent. This car is Opti-coated also.
