My local dealer has TWO in the showroom. It's a nice looking color, for sure. Subtle, refined and has a certain element of class to it.

However, the purported maintenance issues would steer me well away.

Oops try again.

----------

Last try here is the paper work.

I agree about the maintenance. I have a black raven coupe. Its bad enough. This color demands hand wash with no soap.

They are only going to make 75 of them frost silver. 4k + just for the paint. Cool not that cool 4k in parts I can be in the low 11,s high 10,s. And not worry if I get a finger print on the paint closing the door.

Sweet color but it will take car washing to all new levels of OCD. I think it's restricted "hand wash" only, too.

There are a few threads on the silver frost matte color already, but thanks for the pics. I like it, but not to the tune of 4K and a ton of extra maintenance. I passed and went with radiant silver instead. I think these will end up in the hands of collectors.

Yea. Thats what I told the dealer I was at. Cool if I had a ton of money and put it away where I couldn't touch it. But in reality as I was explaining that fact I realized that's the way I treat my black raven coupe anyway. Is there any one on this forum that treats OCD cause I think I'm infected.

What a dumb thing to do to a collector car, put your dealer logo on it.

That paint is amazing but as crazy as I am about owning my black cars....I wouldn't be able to handle the OCD that would go with a matte finish of any kind. Think how bad it would show rock chips...

Idk. Rock chips on silver regardless of clear coat are never that noticeable
