Are you going to take a financial hit on the car? If not, then go with the black one.
I, of course, don't have to clean it.
If you have to take a financial hit, I'd say stick with what you have. You made a decision and it's usually better to stick with your first choice.
myltl.....excellent advice....If I can get from one car into the other with no financial hit, or a very small easy to deal with one, then I'm probably going to go for it. If I have car payments for a 4 year loan that are equal or a little less than what I have now, then there is nothing stopping me, at least not financially.
As for the black color and keeping it clean...my Acura is a dark gray metallic so it's nearly as hard to keep clean as black, so I am used to it. I just utilize the touchless car wash a lot and it looks great for about a week, a little longer in the Summer unless pollen is everywhere...lol. I also try to have my car fully detailed twice a year.
I love the look of that black Mustang, especially with those rims. Those rims are such a throwback to the old Crager mags in the 70s...not sure you would remember those though....lol. And I love the thought of being able to drive a convertible this Summer.
Like I said, wish there were a way I could have both cars, one for my wild side and one for my refined side....sort of like, sometimes I like listening to AC/DC and other times I like listening to James Taylor....lol.
But I thank all of you for your input....you all are very helpful. I could care less about JD Power, Consumer Reports, etc. I like to read what people that actually are driving the cars on a daily basis have to say.
