    Paint Paint Paint

    Okay, so everyone knows about the matte gray. But in yesterday's pricing announcement press release, they also mention a color called 'Elite White Pearl'.

    The question now is, which one will be cooler?! Because if it's truly a pearl paint, that could be pretty impressive.

    Also, can anyone shed light on how difficult it might really be to maintain matte paint?

    Pearl white will be amazing, especially with dark tint, and maybe some black wheels
    I do like the matte gray color too, I can't imagine it being too difficult to keep looking good, it will still have a smooth finish.

    I DO love the matte gray, but I hear ya about the upkeep. God forbid someone scratches your car, or worse, hits it. Will the body shop know how to re-paint a matte gray? Oh boy...!

    Dr. Beasley makes care products specialized for matte paint. Just remember, no wax or glossing agents in soap!!!!

    This is what I'm paranoid about.

    But if the scratches are just tiny and not bad, interestingly enough it will be harder to notice on a matte paint job than a glossy job. That's because in order to see a scratch, light has to be reflected back into the eye. The matte has its look because it reflects light in all directions, making it harder to see the scratch.

    Now, I wonder what it would look like with some gun metal wheels?
