    After pulling my eyes away from that ugly line across your hood I noticed a little body damage.

    Re: Cadillac Paint Questions

    Ok, I'm narrowing my color choice down and so far Thunder Gray Chromaflair is winning out over Black Raven. So now, after reading up on the color it seems as though it's an expensive pain to match if the car ever has to be repaired. I've read some postings here and that is what has been said but those postings are old and I thought I'd toss the question back out and see what answers I get. So, does anyone have experience with having scrapes, scratches, or worse repaired that they can share? Was it crazy expensive and did it look right when finished?

    Re: Cadillac Paint Questions

    I have Thunder Gray Chromaflair and I have to say its my favorite color for a vehicle. I've had cars and suvs in black, blue, tan and by far this gray that they use is just amazing. I love the subtle color shift and I get nothing but compliments on my 2011 CTS AWD Performance. I have an ebony interior. I plan to get the ATS 2.0 Premium with a Thunder Gray exterior with a Light Platinum w/Jet Black interior. I love that interior, I just need to see how it meshes with the dark gray outside... as of now, thats what I am going for.

    I have the 3M on my 2004 V. With Blackfire shine you have to stand above it and look directly down to see the line on the hood.
    Not many people get close enough to even see if I have plastic on the front, hood, fender tops and mirrors.
    You can see a different reflectivity but you have to be looking for it.
    It now has a couple smudges from stones that would have chipped paint but not too bad.
