It's not higher priced....if it is, it's not significant. matte paint is simply a matte clear coat, the paint itself is the same, AFAIK.

Seeing as Matte finishes have been around since 2011 with BMW, i'm sure any BMW certified shop could do it. If not, surely your dealership either has paint in-house or uses a particular place that would be qualified.
