I ordered a Matte Grey but now questioning my decision. Anybody actually seen it in person, if yes, what's your impressions. Does it have any shine to it or does it look like it's missing a coat of paint? Any pics would be a bonus.

hey there @Timmies, happy Saturday!

So, there's pictures all over the internet and most early press videos on youtube are of the matte grey. It is like having a semigloss paint. Not reflective but does have a little shine to it.

I ordered the matt grey myself.

We also ordered the grey, I'm sure the look will be sharp with the body stye. My worry is the long term protection. Did ceramic coating with our last car, impressive. Pretty certain a repeat is coming.

I've seen the EV6 and Ioniq 5 matte grey in the flesh. They don't do a lot for me, however, I like a shiny car and beauty is in the eye of the beholder ;) . Of course all the negative comments about not using shampoo or normal washing together with not being able to repair minor scratches doesn't help.

My dealer had both the Matte Grey for their demo car back in September and they also had a RWD one for a customer so I saw them both.

I have ordered the Matte Grey so I was particularly keen to see this colour "in the flesh". I have to say that it looks stunning - really nice.

Now, I have just accepted the fact that I am going to have to get the whole car vinyl-wrapped to protect this paint job - but once I got over that, I am happy with the choice.

I thought vinyl wrap would not seal the matte in its favor.

I'm debating Matte Grey which really suits the EV6, but my local bodywork specialist agrees it needs full protective film cover to properly maintain paint finish.
Full PPF by Xpel Matte film will cost over 4k!!!
The local specialist still waiting to hear if Xpel will foot cost of design/cut out patterns - otherwise it will cost even more!
