no - fact: all cars get dirt the same regardless of color. actually white shows DIRT the worst. if you want a perfect mirror finish paint job all the time, black is the hardest as dark colors show swirls,dust and other paint imperfections more.
the metallic blacks may hide some of the dust but I had a cosmos e36 and a jet black e46 and I think the effort is the same. I garage the car and have covered parking at work so I dont mind. even if my car was another "easier" color I would still be obsessed with keeping it clean.
btw overall Space gray is probably the easiest. IMO
