Like we talk last week, you are not afraid about the maintenance of that matte paint. You might have me change my order a third time lol

don't misunderstand me...i personally would never buy that paint, for all the reasons i previously stated...that said those matte finishes are a growing trend sparked by the aftermarket and manufacturers WANT a piece of the aftermarket pie. that said, making sure we have the cars people desire on our lots is one of my responsibilities, and i'm sure that car will be gorgeous with a capitol 'G' and will have a ton of interest. were i to go down the matte path, personally i'd do it with a wrap, because, i'm personally too lazy to have my cars paint need more attention than my child does. also, the only way to get that paint is as part of a package, that includes the carbon pkg and the black wheels the only color deviation that can be made is interior color.

Matte finishes are a fad IMO. A pita to maintain and very easily screwed up. Several months ago, another new V owner bought a frost matte finish car that the dealership had wrapped, probably because there was no interest in it.
