As an owner of mostly black vehicles past and present, neighbors believe I have OCD.
Was quite pleased when my wife decided on the RX bamboo pearl color so is she!

I have 3 cars with Black color (the last one being a new acquisition)! What punishment I bring to myself!

But when clean, Black cannot be beat.

No doubt. I've had 2 black cars and it just sucks how imperfections can be so noticeable. Good job on the RX.

So it's true when they say: "when you go black"...

Where I live it`s down right impossible to keep clean! The Lehigh Valley and surrounding area has horrible air quality. I wash my wife`s Black car, and 10min later it`s dusty. BTW, look`s very nice. What % is your ds, and ps window tint?

If I recall it's 20% SunTek but I can check later. It matches for the most part but the factory rear window's tint are a part of the glass while the fronts are a film so it will never match perfectly when viewed from inside and outside regardless of the %.
