I've never been able to get myself to do it. There are few cars I actually like in black (Z4M being one of them), but the thought of trying to maintain one is just too much for me. I'm already not that great about keeping my cars clean.

Funnily enough, I've been on Rennlist browsing more and more because a Porsche would be my ultimate dream car. Right now it's a tie between a 997.1 GT3 or 981 Spyder in the distant future. But at their current values, I have a very hard time justifying the fact that one of those cost more than DOUBLE the Z4M and E36 M3 combined. Not sure I'd get 4x the smiles those cars bring me.

Black isn't as bad as people make it out to be, especially, in Sapphire. Jet Black, on the other hand is a different story.

I owned a Sapphire Black X5 for 16 years and counting and don't really have an issue with it and this is just with your basic waxing every year. No paint correction after 16 years of ownership! Sapphire really hides a lot of the minor scratches and the annual wax took care of those. Would I own another black car? Probably not, but it's because I like my cars in colors other than black, white, or any other shades of gray - i.e. none color blind.

Another issue for me, on top of what I just said is that I live in South Carolina, where temps can get up to 100F by 8AM in the summers. I think that would also be pretty miserable in a daily driver.

The first summer I had my E92 M3, which is a 2008 with the old school iDrive knob made out of metal, I managed to pretty much burn my hands trying to select a song after it's been parked outside all day at work

Great photos guy! Gee, I was in Houston during the last week of February but I didn’t see that roadster sadly. Although I did enjoy a nice meal with the wife at Perry’s steakhouse and saw the Rockets play the Knicks Monday night.

Racerbruce please tell me you're buying Skyer's diffuser when it comes out? It would complete this car so well!

Here's one from my latest photography trip. I like to go get pictures of landscapes, old buildings, etc, and I almost always get one of the car while I'm out.

Good catch. Not (exactly) personalized. The backstory..

I really like these older maroon Arizona plates. They were issued for about 15 years till around 2000. The next (white) plates are nice, but they delaminate badly with age. In 2008 they kept the design but made them FLAT, and I HATE any and all flat plates!

I found 3 consecutive plates on Ebay about 6-7 years ago - these 2 plus one more (EWD233) which is now on my wife's Kia Soul. They weren't even used - apparently they were the front plate that was issued (2 were issued at the time but a front plate wasn't required to be displayed).In Arizona, a plate stays tied to its last registration for 10 years. After that, it's free and clear. So any plate from Ebay that's clear can be registered again, but there's a catch - it can only be done for the original owner or a family member. Solution? Order it as a vanity plate. Get current-style plate with same letter/number combo, add it to the garage collection, put vintage plate & sticker on car - voila! So now they're tied to me, and I do pay the slight upcharge for vanity plate, but I don't care. They can be moved from car to car painlessly too.

One of the nice things about them - they have a nice raised white border, which precludes the need for putting them into a frame.
