The Silver is definately easy to keep clean...it seems to rain here every other day and everytime I go to wash my X I expext to see some major change in contrast..But every time I do wash, it almost looks the same...and that's precisely why I bought this color, it's very easy to take care of!

I contemplated for a long time on a light blue color. When that wasn't available we tried to get a Just Blue one, at the last minute I got a relly good deal on a used 2000 Super Black one with 11K in MINT condition. I honestly never like black and I knew it would be a pain in the ass to keep clean. But since I got it, I really have changed attitudes. Ask anyone, a clean black vehicle will outlook anything. The dark background will shine your reflection clearer than any color. It DOES require ample care and upkeep but the reward of that shine is well worth it. I orginally wanted a yellow when they first came out (My Schwinn Moab is yellow & looks awesome!). Now there are just too many of those damn yellow ones around. I have only saw one other black one and it was an XE so I feel I am the dominant for a little while. Even my Dad is a loyal white color buyer but when I pulled up in that shiny black X, he said 'That thing looks good!'. All worth every minute of keeping it spotless. Until we hit the trailhead...-stu

I have a silver ice X and I wanted to get a Black one. But after seeing a neighbors black X I am sure now I made a good choice. Black is nice only in the Showroom....

Silver X always waxes up in showroom condition if you take care of it.

I own a black X and I wouldnt trade it for anything. The best color hands down for any vehicle is black in my humble opinion. It looks fantastic clean and rugged muddy. It does take a bit more elbow grease and some effort to keep it looking good but in my opinion it is worth it.
