I've only ever had a silver car and really didn't spend much time ever cleaning it. I've heard about how much dirt shows up on black cars....will this be basically the same with the brown cube too since it is a darker colour?

It's going to really depend on what "color" the native dirt is in your area and where you drive and park. Here it can be either very dark (farming soil) or very slight (sand or native caliche` dust).

The brown on these cars includes light & dark specks, which helps a lot, but probably not if you live near a talc plant or something.

The more I look at the brown cubes the more I like them. I guess it is because the color varies so much with the lighting. It goes from almost black, to sparkly brown, to purple, and a few other shades in between.

I think dirt won't show as much. My wife's car is black and pollen is the thing that shows up the most during the spring and summer. Pollen would blend right in with the brown color.

Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy before you get yours:

My Gun metal/Platinum Twilight Grey still looked ok after 3 months of general weather driving.At a distance.
Must admit it did look shinier with the wash though.
As mentioned here before,the location would make a difference.
What if you were in Sidney Australia with the red dust then my colour and whites would show up badly but the reds would be fine!

I don't really notice the dirt, but I'm a clean freak so I try to wash my car at least once a week if not more. Only thing I see is the tears(the water that runs out of the mirrors) and the occasional splash of dirty water from the road. I didn't even want the brown until i saw it in person, then I bought it...

The bitter chocolate is an awesome color. I've had no problem like a black car. After a few coats of a good quality wax a rinse and blow dry (I use my leaf blower) does the trick. The cool thing is the more sunlight the more red you can see in it.

So jealous of the bitter chocolate owners! Like a previous poster, I didn't even know I liked it until I saw one in person, and then it was love at first sight. Really wanted one. Unfortunately, my husband had the same sort of love at first sight experience--only with the Caribbean blue. So that's what we ended up buying. I figure I may have lost the battle (color) but won the war (I get to drive a Cube!).
