Nope impossible, despite perfect prep. the paint would crumble off the minute it was mounted.

Yep...I believe AKRYM has that option as well. A cheaper alternative.

I remember someone on the forums ordering a challenge diffusor in matte black I think... maybe it was the arkym but I'm pretty sure it was challenge. If I find the thread I'll link it.

They don't come matte but you can have your body shop finish it in matte paint or with a matte clear. We did something similar to the carbon bootlid on our 335 by doing a matte clear over the carbon.

Of course you can paint it matte black. Adequate priming will prevent chipping.
