Hi All,

I was thinking of getting a black cactus, i really like it and it looks more aggressive especially with black wheels, but my friends told me that it will be a nightmare for maintaining it. What do you think about the obsidian black regarding maintenance like washing, scratches,heat,dents, etc.. ?

Regards,

As others say black does show the dirt but I enjoy cleaning it so no problem for me. Can't say that I noticed it being hotter inside because it's black. Scratches obviously will be easier to see but a dent is going to show whatever colour you choose. I don't regret choosing black at all - I think my sig pic says it all.

Black is an awesome colour when it's new or when it's wet, it's a colour you have to invest a lot of time in cleaning and waxing if you want it to look great all the time. Look at most of the black cars you see, they get that 'dry' look quite quickly, black Audi's and Minis look good for quite a while, that's probably down to paint quality.

I have had several black cars and it is true that it requires some effort to keep it looking good. Thinking of my previous car, Peugeot 508, the metallic black shade was very dark, totally black. It seemed that the paint was quite soft and got very easily scratches. This shade of "Noir Obsidien" on Cactus is a bit lighter, it almost looks dark grey in bright sunlight. So far, the surface of the paint is fine and glossy. I had Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection wax on it and it made the car look very shiny.
