It's not too bad at this time of year... winter might be a different story. But go for what you like, I've had cars in colours that are sensible or don't show the dirt... but I end up not being happy because I 'settled' for a colour. Got to say, high maintenance or not I am really happy with my Frozen White
the two colours i've had that are a pig to keep clean are white and black, imo they just show the dirt a little more than others, but then if you put the effort in cleaning they are nice colours to have......i'm just lazy now
I work with someone who had a white mondeo and he said it wasnt too bad, well no worse than a black car, in fact he changed to a thunder grey mondeo and wished he had went for white again! Oh and we work on a farm where the road can get mucky especially when we're ploughing and at harvest! and to be honest whatever colour gets dirty then!!
Get a decent paint sealer on your car from new and it'll keep itself clean for longer. I've come from a white Focus ST into a Electric white kuga and I wash mine once a week maybe once every 2 weeks and it's ok.
I use to own a Escort XR3i in diamond white which I use to put into shows. As long as you keep a good covering of wax on the paint the dirt normally runs off when it hosed down or when it rains. Again my Kuga is black no problem keeping it clean.
Mine is frozen white too. I think it looks great when it is fresh from the car wash .<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />
Just beware 3 thinks that look ugly on the white color :
1. The dead bugs after a highway trip
2. The mud at the lower part of the doors
3. The envy eyes that look at it, (cause it's the best color on KUGA
) ""¦.sometimes they bring bad luck and negative energy
Frozen White when driven long distances through the rainlook really bad. I spotted a white Kuga from Lithuania in St Austell, Cornwall just on tuesday and it looked as it haven't been cleaned for a long time. It was a shame to see a fellow Kuga owner letting his car down
