Clear Bra on Matte Color

Would getting a clear bra (Xpel Ultimate Plus) on designo magno affect the stock look in any noticeable way? I'm getting delivery of my matte black 19 G550 in a few days, and want to get the front bra, but I'm afraid it might affect the look of the matte black.

Iíd talk to a few good shops on options. I believe an xpel in an area will show different from the other panels no protected. You may want a full protection just to keep the total vehicle consistent.

Get the xpel stealth clear bra. It's made for matte cars so shouldn't be noticeable.

Yeah, that's a good idea. I'm still worried it's going to affect the factory look of it, so I'm just going to install it on just the front and other critical areas.

Then I'm going to coat the rest of the car with this product: https://www.drbeasleys.com/matte-pai...g-pro-kit.html

Recommend going with Suntek, they have stealth also, my entire g550 4x4 squared is magno and itís done in Suntek. I ordered Xpel stealth for another matte vehicle of mine and I like the SunTek better. Itís not as thick and seems to look fine. Yes it will slightly dull the Metallic affect but honestly I canít tell the difference even when I am look at a door edge that was covered and the area it was not. I have the entire front, hood, fenders, door handle buckets, and door edges, fender flares

I agree here. Xpel is thicker and in my opinion offers better protection, but it's more noticable then the Sun Tek. I put Xpel on my trucks and SUVs and Sun Tek on my Bentley, Ferrari, etc. Good luck.

Can you post a picture of your matte black G550 with you get it. I just ordered one for myself in the matte black (I got a white 2019 G550 for my wife). Thanks.
