Matte doesn't wear off, you just want to use soap and water with no wax. The intent is to not create a shine, otherwise it is no longer matte. I know I am opening myself up to a bunch of wise cracks, but observe the no excessive rubbing rule!
I was able to buy one of the original anniversary edition frozen greys, and am at just over 1.5 years of ownership and it is all good and looks just as good as the day I picked it up.
My cousin wants to know if there's any special way you should dry it with. Like in case cotton towels are too abrasive or something
Use a leaf blower to dry it ( no touching= no micro-marring). Swissvax sells a opaque wax for matte cars. It is the best wax for matte cars and I think it is only $90.

Congrats to your cousin!

Speaking from experience get the SwissVax products, microfiber towels and a leaf blower.

Dont use a squeegee it will scratch to paint and then your are SOL.

Did you just watch the video in the Frozen Care featured article on bimmerpost today? No microfiber? Isn't microfiber like the softest thing? What about the leather shams or whatever that BMW sells?

Right on! No you don't sound like a stalker lol. It wasn't a real GTS but it was a '12 Individual Color Fire Orange E92 M3 ZCP w/ GTS goodies That was only a small portion of our cars that were able to make it to FMY. Euro Squad will be rolling to Mfest with 30+ cars and at least 1/4 will have custom one-off work by Ranz Motorsports! I look forward to meeting you nd your cousin at Mfest! When are you coming to Vegas?

Dont use microfiber cloth. Surprisingly, they say that is too abrasive. Use a shammee.
