Just wondering. After a new paint job or detail, how much time passed until the hairline scratches and marks started showing up again? My new black paint job was immaculate for 5 days.

Thats all going to depend on how you treat the car. If you wash it pre rinse it first otherwise your going to grind the dirt into the panit and cause the scratches. If you take it thru a car wash you will get some marks also. Keep on top of it and it should look great for a long time.:D

Black cars are the biggest pain in the ass !!!!! I have had 7 to date and they were the hardest to clean but what wax work great is Meguiar's NXT generation Tech Wax.
