Can I ask, is Jet Black really a color to avoid? I've heard that multiple times on this forum, that it's too "soft" a color, but it just looks so incredible when a skilled detailer has done his work..... And would Jet Black be even more risky if I wanted to keep the car for a long time?
It's not soft at all IMO. If you want black then it is seriously BLACK, not half black / half blue like Jerez. As far as keeping it for a long time (presuming you mean looking well) then you will need to maintain it with quality polishes an regular washing or bring it to your detailler a couple of times per year. If you want low maintenance as opposed to black paint as your first priority then silver or red are the best colours. By the way Jerez is just as prone to swirls as jet black.
