    Sell it and get a non-black car. As the owner of a black car (well, at least until the guy who hit my car insurance pays off!), get rid of it. Not worth the constant hassle.

    The biggest thing is to get the paint absolutely smooth (clay) and swirl free (polishing) before waxing. The hard part is keeping it that way once you get the paint as close to perfect as possible.

    Black cars are a pain the the ass to keep clean but nothing looks better when they are.
