My Model S is Black and yes it can be a problem to keep it clean, but I like black so think it is worth it.

Saw a Long Range Model 3 on a 69 plate today coming back up the M20 from Waterloo, looked really nice, with Aero’s, first one I have seen it in black and might even sway me over white even if free!

I like white cars but I don't like washing them every week.

You could take it to your local hand car wash and watch them scrubbing off your clear coat and scuff the paint.

Speak to a professional detailer about white paint.
My neighbour has a nice white car that always looks clean. Turns out he got a professional ceramic coating, which seems to help a lot! Having only owned black cars (no ceramic coating) I get endlessly depressed by how quickly they become dirty or dusty-looking after washing.

I had my Golf R ceramic coated with Gtechniq, did 53k miles on it and was constantly washed at the local £5 hand car wash. I must say it held up extremely well. You’ll still get light swirl marks but the shine is locked in.
Considering it for the Model 3 :)
