    I previously had a white car and it was the easiest to keep clean; it was either clean or dirty

    The car that rarely showed up dirt was my first Vectra B, in Titanium Silver (Pearlescent Silver)
    It could go for months without the need for cleaning

    I am now on my second blue car, they just seem to look dirty all the time

    You jest surely? I don't wash my star silver Vectra for 6 to 8 weeks at a time and it still looks clean. Only thing that really shows the dirt is the alloys - mainly brake dust.
