I agree with the stunning visual of the matte colors. The concerns I would have has been stated, chips, scratches, finding detail shops that can adequately handle repairs, etc. If the finish were as durable, as say, Glock's tenifer coating, I'd go for it; else I'd just be afraid to drive the car. Just think if someone keyed the thing.
