I'm underwhelmed with the look. Reading the other posts about the BMW advisory concerning care of the paint and that only BMW can repair damage makes me like it even less. I love my space gray metallic and can wax it too!
I remember seeing a post a bit ago that showed this film adhesive protectant that could be applied to the entire vehicle and it gives the paint a similar look. That might be a better way to go if you want to tone down the shine some, and is much more practical. Ah well, variety is the spice of life...I've learned over the years though that exotics (cars, goods, services, women, what ever...) tend to be much higher maintenance and lead to frustration.
