Thanks again to everyone for your kind words. As you all can clearly see my photography skills are most definitely lacking. The paint though flat has a soft luminescence which is truly captivating.

As far as driving experience is concerned, I have only driven the car home from the dealership and once to the gym so I am really not yet qualified to answer. I love both the manual and sport+ drive programs. The exhaust note is wonderful and the car is a far better dynamic driver than my previous E55's.

wow looking pretty sick!!!! I just saw a matte white SL63 at the dealership the other day. I must say, the designo cashmere looks absolutely amazing in person.

Gorgeous color. I was also very curious about the paint-care instructions.

I too am shocked that matte paint requires no waxing or care of any kind, other than washes...but then again what type of wax would properly protect this type of paint w/out making the finish shiny. Such a strange paint but so trick looking.

I wonder what the durability/longetivity of this paint is like? I.e, can it still look like-new after 10-20+ years (like normal, well cared for paints)?

It so, AND it requires no maintenance to get that, then I'm in love, complete, and total love.

If it's anything like the BMW frozen gray, it sounds like a lot of maintenance/repaints in the future. Apparently rubbing the surface too hard when washing can cause a glossy spot...only fixed with a repaint, since it's the texture of the paint that makes it matte in the first place. Sure looks killer though.

Thus far only cosmetic, flat AMG hood emblem and clear side markers. I spoke briefly with Richard Garcia @ DynoComp about the car. I am anxious to see what Renntech can do.

Yes indeed!!! That is the car. They sold the Matte white CL63 and I believe the S63 still remains. The CLS 63 looked nice but I wasn't too excited about the tan interior...

I will buy all of my future MB's from Schumacher's. Wonderful dealership that is truly a class act. Kevin Steele, the General Manager, is without peer.

Sounds like touch-up paint or a clear bra won't look right.

Excellent looking ride, sir. Seeing as you've had the car for a few months, are you noticing any issues with the matte paint staying matte? As mentioned above, I've heard that washing can cause some bright spots.

I'm in love with that color...
