    i was debating the same thing but changing from white to black is a royal pain. Everything right now is painted white, the underbody is white, the cowl is white, so much stuff to cover up. I think white looks clean, not my first choice but i like it over most colors so i say leave it.

    If your car isn't your DD, it's stored in a garage that isn't a high traffic area and you have alot of experience with a polishing wheel, then, get black.

    White is 10x easier to maintain vs. black. It's also your current color so you won't have to get a proper paint job (firewall etc), which rotten is expensive.

    Black is the best color around at night, but during the day, every single flaw it has is amplified 10x. This is why I don't take any pics of car unless theres an overcast.

    good decision my 1st T/A was white, then it got totaled the one i have now is black. i love it, but i know when it gets out of the paint shop, and i start driving it and it gets dirty, and it's time to clean it, i'm really gonna be missing having the white one, lol.

    I'd stay with white I love mine in black but its way too much work to keep clean. Plus there's a lot less white camaros than black (in my area at least) white with the ccw wheels is one of my favorite looks for the camaros in my opinion
