The car you don't drive. That one can always look clean.

In reality, I'm with the others; Silver

I had a Silver 325i before, even if you dont wash silver for a month it will still look silver. Black...not so much.

Black cars can look silver after a month too!

Have owned black, silver, interlagos blue, and white. Lighter colors always seem to appear cleaner, white/silver. Black is the hardest to keep clean

Lighter colors always tend to look cleaner, of course. I have owned silver, gray, black and white cars. The silver was the easiest to keep looking clean without a doubt.
