Sorry to hear you are having some teething issues with your car.
Whether matte paint really costs that much more I am not sure about.
The price in this case doesn't seem to mean it is better quality, rather much more exclusive.
The Canterbury car is very black! Black wheels, black exhaust tips, black anything they could get black.
Interior has red contrast stitching which is pretty nice.
Has a sunroof though which wouldn't be my preference.
Good guys at Canterbury though.
