The Frozen Grey color is not a PITA to clean it is several times easier to clean and maintain compared to gloss grey. This has been backed up by owners I've talked to and my own experience working in a high end custom shop that painted and maintained several matte painted supercars.

People got a misconception that matte paint is more difficult to maintain when BMW sent out several notices to dealers and made owners sign a sheet telling them not to put products intended to make paint glossy on the matte paint (this is an extremely obvious peice of advice intended for very uninformed people), these notices also included several well established care instructions that apply to both gloss and matte paint. Having less work and doing what you're supposed to already be doing to gloss paint does not make matte paint harder to care for. That makes it easier. This sort of paint requires these notices because people are unfamiliar with it.

Thank you all guys for your replies.
Im picking it up wednesday hopefully.

Concerning the color, it looks much better in reality than on pictures.
I purchased already the Swissvax cleaning shampoo for matt paint, so I am well prepared for the 'daily cleaning'...

Keeping you updated this week.

I did it the other way, I drive my jet black so fast the wind stripped the luster off it and made it Matt Black
