I would always go for white especially in Thailand. So many friends of mine have regretted buying black cars over here..

white pearl yellowish to begin with (Nissan, Audi) can turn more yellowish

white waxed every 3 months, I havent seen any turn yellowish

Both white and black is more important to wax often, since they usually dont have a protecting clear coat

2 more issues from my decades in the auto industry

3 year old trade ins, most colors 30% have had a respray, black its 50%

baloon lease, value in 3 years for black and white are often 5% point less. fashion colors, not knowing how popular they will be when trading in 3 years later. We dont mention pink in this cenario:D

My experience in Thailand is that they tend to go gray from all the diesel/soot that sticks to them. Well, unless you're talking about the pearl white on the MU-7 which is yellow to begin with ;)

Washing/waxing isn't enough to remove this fully in my experience - and I wash weekly, with wax every 6 weeks. You really need to use a chemical paint cleaner to get it off properly/safely. Use this stuff on your white car after 6-12 months in Thai traffic and you'll be amazed by the difference. In fact, use it on any color car that's been driven for 6 months or more and you'll see the difference - even on black cars (just to a lesser effect).
