I manage a paint and body shop and can tell you that I will never own a black car. IT shows every little flaw. White however is very easy to maintain, easy to repair should the need ever arise, and hides a lot of dings and dents. A hail damaged white car does not really show itself in the sun because it is so bright. The only downside to white is that any plastic parts of the vehicle that are white have a tendency to "yellow"
