I dont know if anyone else has heard about the cleaning specifics on the matte paint but it looks like hyundai is saying there gunna have you sign a waiver saying its not there fault if you dont wash it correctly. It sounds like more hassle than its worth, they also said not recommended for daily drivers.. such as myself. Looks like im picking a new color. What are yalls first pick? was it the matte grey? what color would you pick now?


I think ill go with iron man silver or pearl white i think either of those would be good picks!

Black was my first choice, then Matte gray, but after seeing the care needed and hearing from some BMW frozen paint owners about the hassle, I am going to black.

My current car is black, I guess it's true what they say... lol

I'm in FL and it's not that bad.

Keep in mind if you get the Ultimate Package, most of the internal heat will come from entry through the panoramic roof and windows. Besides, you could always get Blue Link and cool down the car before you get in with remote start. :)

haha, I completely agree.. I've had 3 black vehicles (My current truck which is a toyota tundra, chevy yukon, and chevy silverado) and I'm ready for a change. For me it's either elite white or matte grey. Not sure I could buy the matte grey sight unseen though.

At least down here black vehicles are harder to keep clean, but when they are they sure look damn good!

I am not willing to spend 1000$ for paint. The things that draw me to the car are: mpg; price; M/T; looks. I was going for Vitamin C but I read reviews and say that it is number 1 color for regular Veloster; scratch that off the list. I have a white Lincoln LS so that color is out. I am going with black. I have a 73 black Hurst/Olds and to me black makes some cars look mean! So black M/T and hope no ultimate package.

after reading the last DR.s article, if matte is an option for me I will be getting it.. doesn't seem to bad..

and also could you imagine how detailed the instructions dealers probably recommend taking care of NORMAL paint that no one probably follows?

to me it seems the big difference is NO auto washes and getting matte safe soaps is about as hard as it gets..

you shouldn't scrub/dry in circular motion on any paint. scrubbing to hard on any paint can dig scratches in from foreign materials anyway. You will just have to be more careful with the matte so you don't make it shine..

If I get the matte, I will take it to the 0.25 wash weekly or bi-weekly, spray it off with the pre-rinse/pre-wash and the high pressure rinse, dry it off and probably do fine.

If I have the chance to get the Matte it would just be to hard to pass up. The VTurbo is such a 'loud' vehicle to begin with and will have people saying 'WTF is THAT' combine that with the matte gray and some Brenthon emblems and people will be SOO confused...

You have a lot more faith than I
I have seen those things spray wax when the final spot free rinse is selected because some dolt put the wrong stuff in the wrong tank

yeah, there is one wash around here I have some faith in and I usually spray the stuff for about 5-10 seconds to make sure it is on the right setting or at least purged through what went through it last.

most of the time, I will probably just pressure rinse the thing often to keep loose stuff off of it and touch up some spots as needed. Being matte and non-reflective it won't look dirty as often unless it is covered in sand and dirt. on top of that, it is grey so it should look cleaner longer just because the color.

I can't wait to see/hear what you think of it, a year into your ownership experience

I hear finger prints are a problem. The oils from people touching the vehicle can leave permanent "marks" On the Grey it MAY not be too noticeable, but black I hear is a real problem. I would love to buy the VT with this color but it will prove to be too time consuming for my taste. I'd go nuts worrying about every little thing ruining the paint :)

Con's outweigh the Pro's on this one for me

Turbosocks;772 If I get the matte said:
This is what I want to do, HOWEVER, what concerns me is that some chemical cleaner goes through the same spray pipes. Would residue from this eventually fill in the matte finish? Also, what about splashing or misting from the walls and the ground onto the matte finish? Some things to consider.
