Mein Auto: 2017 BMW 340xi M-Sport
I've had/have both (Jet first, now Sapphire) and they are difficult to maintain. I would say Jet black is the most difficult of the two, but looks great when clean & detailed. It does show scratches much more readily than Sapphire, but then again, I never had many of those ;-) I personally prefer Sapphire as it adds slightly more "visual interest" as it is a metallic paint. It also costs $550 more - keep that in mind.
