Having a black car is like having a second job, to keep it looking nice you have to constantly be working at it. There really isn't much more you can do then clay bar it, polish it and wax it. Get a good protective coat down and give it minor cleans throughout the week.

I don't know the name of it, but my detailer said he uses a special wax for black paint that does not leave swirl marks and it repells dust. It specifically designed for black paint.

There are a ton of black paint waxes out there, the one everyone seems to be using now is the turtle wax black box kit , I've tried it on my wife's black gt and its not bad at all it leaves a nice shine and repel's dust, also invest in a California car duster and give your beast a wipe down everyday to keep her looking her best!!!!

I used to get tired of washing my car every week too. Then I realized that taking care of your car that much makes you appreciate it much more. It makes me more proud of it when I show it off. Probably different for me though. When I'm washing it, I'm not inside the house dealing with crazy, screaming kids. That's why I wash my car a lot...

Also, try the Meguiar's NXT 2.0 from Autozone. Easy application and works very nice for me.

Before I'm done waxing her she is already dusty. Only way to fix it is to drive faster haha. I find using a quick wax or detail spray to quickly wipe the car down is the best way to go when you get a little dusty. I feel your pain about the dust. I have a huge gravel back alley that always seems dusty.

Haha driving faster doesn't work, I've tried haha! Im trying to find a good wax for my at too because the pollen out here turns my car yellow so quickly. Ughhh it's annoying. Brand names would be great!

All you can do is detail spray it often between washes.

I've tried just about every wax out there. Not will prevent dirt/dust/pollen from sticking.

Part of the fun is detailing her right?
