    Nogaro blue - pain to keep clean?

    Hi guys, i've just sold my black fto and I have my heart set on a nogaro blue s3. I've vowed never to buy a black car again because it was so hard to keep clean - stone chips, swirl marks and minor scratches were the bain of my life [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Does nogaro blue have the same problems? I don't really want to have to go for boring silver [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Had my Noggy blue S3 for 6 mths now and have no probs keeping it looking Tip Top.

    Took 6 months to find one, but worth the wait!!

    How long do they keep looking nice and clean after a wash though - with black, barely a day after a good washing it would look dirty again [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    FYI, yes I am a lazy [censored] who doesn't want to wash his car every week [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Once a month is more than enough....

    Buy a silver or grey one then.
    Nogaro Blue isn't as bad as black to keep clean...but once it gets dirty it dulls, and Nogaro Blue in dull light / when dirty looks like cheap-ass company car blue! Not pretty.

    I'd agree that silver or grey will withstand dirt better than blue/black, but wouldn't have said that a dirty nogaro blue S3 looks like a 'cheap-ass company car' [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    The only reason that I wash mine every week is to keep the wheels clean, otherwise I'd be the same, once or twice a month..

    Get some pics up so we can have a look.
