An argument for matte wrap

On my way I to work and the relflection off the hood was almost as bad as the sunlight. Trying to use this as an excuse w/ the wife to get a wrap.. Think it will work?

Pretty weak if you ask me. Also, money better spent elsewhere.

I know I am new to the M3 forum, but I absolutely LUV my Frozen Grey matte paint, and I do not have this problem.

I've read various opinions about the factory matte paint; however, this car takes just as much (if not more) attention to detail as a "normal" M3 paint job.

I can still make luv to my car while washing/detailing, just don't EVER have to clay bar, seal, and wax it!

When I first wanted to wrap my car I told my wife the same thing and asked her for a wrap for my birthday, she told me "Ok, fine. As long as it protects your eyes". Being the troll that she is, she got me a pair of women's Fendi sunglasses instead (for her). I in turn pretended to not know that they were women's sunglasses and told her I loved them.....I ended up selling them behind her back a day later to a female coworker and bought the vinyl and DIYed it myself.

She'll probably just suggest that you swap for a car without such a noticeable bluge on the hood...
