I don't think I'd ever choose that myself.

For what it's worth, the Phantom was always my favorite model growing up and I have enough respect for those that flew and crewed them that for you, I will agree to like one, matte car, even if it is grey. So now my official stance is all matte cars are bad, except yours, which is awesome.
Me lighten up??? I guess you missed the big grin at the end of my post.

There is nothing quite like a meticulous, shiny paint, waxed and polished to mirror like finish!
Matte is underwhelming to say the least.

I'm indifferent about them but the GF loves the PlastiDip job I did on her '86 E30. This is purely temporary to hide the mismatched fender, bumper and hood. I've yet to install the facelift rear bumper (front bolts right on, rear needs about 2" of length cut out), at which point we'll paint it properly after we've saved up the money. This cost me about $300 and took me from 10am-3am from prep to painted.
