Let me say it another way. The car does not follow the normal process through the paint shop line into the clear coat kiln/oven. The matte clear coat is not baked on at Dingolfing.

They sell the paint as equally protective - maybe technically it protects the aluminum as well from oxidation and corrosion, however you'll destroy the look/finish if something is caked onto your car and you can't remove it chemically and need to rub it off.

I personally think it looks great but how are you going to go for a summer afternoon country drive and get the insects off without altering the intended color?
