worst possible color to show dirt

IMO, it has to be frozen white.
Think about it..... that finish will catch and hold all the crap, and you can't wipe it off, not by conventional mean, like with a quick detailer and microfiber. Maybe you can with bird crap. After this ridiculous winter all the salt particulate fallout from the very dry air, winds, and just filth on the roads....
probably have to wand pressure wash to get the dirt out, and often.

heck I have to dust/clean mine from just sitting in the garage for the winter. can't put a car cover on a dirty car.
anyways just venting. I saw a frozen white 2013 e92 at Perillo in Chicago for sale for almost 80k,

I've had multiple red, silver, and sand color cars. This is my first white one and it seems to get dirty quickly. I've always heard black was a bear to keep nice.

Thinking Sepang Bronze or some sort of brown is the way to go, dirt colored car.

Space gray is the way to go. Best color for those who want minimal maintenance
