Black can give the most brilliance, but it needs most attention of all 
(the opposite is white -- no wash for a year and most people still won't 
see the difference between clean and dirty). Pure black is very 
susceptible to being unwashed for sometime. It needs to be cleanred 
regularly and often. There is a BrBlk 5K in my neighborhood that seems to be 
kept up meticulously. And I must say, it's wonderful-looking.
