    I've yet to see one, I'm guessing it's pretty good at hiding smudges and dust, since it's not a shiney surface
    I bet washed and blown dry it looks good, I like the low maintenance aspect
    I wonder how it holds up? they make some pretty amazing and durable industrial finishes now, and since smoothness is not a concern I bet they can make it very durable
    only time will tell, they had some issues in the early 2000's when the germans switched to a water based (vs solvent) paint

    At the autoshow this year there were Hyundai's with matte paint. Not sure if it'll be available to the public.

    If I ever get around to getting a bike, it'll be a Ducati (or a Royal Enfield), 916/748 or something more modern, 1198 dependant on my budget.

    figured this would be the best thread to post this in

    no, not thinking about it whatsoever, but was having an argument with a friend...he says that modern cars run entirely too clean with their catalytic converters and whatnot to be able to successfully kill you via CO2 poisoning. i disagree, i think it would just take longer, but if you stuck a hose in your exhaust and put it in your window you'll die

    Love it even more, going topless is best.

    Edit: Drug dealers around here drive Lincoln Navigators or Cadillac Escalade... Gangstas are more environmentally conscious with there Prius. But I think that's so they can creep up on you and gun you down.
