Does it show scratches easily?
Well it showed these scratches up pretty good :)

Does it show fingerprints easily?
I feel like the matt paint does not show fingerprints up easily. For example, around the handles or charging door.

Does it look dirty easily?
I think it looks okay with typical road grime. I'm fussy and it doesn't bother me. The car is cleaned weekly though.

Is a quick high pressure wash sufficient to get it looking good again, like it is on some whites?
Its fine for me when I do it weekly. Though due to my circumstances – living in an apartment complex and not many non-automated washes around me – I often clean it with "waterless cleaner" such as https://www.amazon.co.uk/Meguiars-G3626EU-Ultimate-Waterless-768ml/dp/B006FUT0CS.

I’ve been surprised at how many times I have been stopped by people commenting on my 4S, which is pretty cool most of the time. Hard to say whether the color or the car itself has been complimented more though...very happy with the last minute decision to go Neptune blue. Another manufacturer’s version of blue is in the background for reference in one of the pics.

Its definitely harder than metallics as the non metallic paint shows microscratches more. However I did a paint correction and ceramic and I use s quick pressure wash and microfiber towel regularly and it looks great six months in.

This view made from my hotel window made me so happy I didn't spec the glass roof.

I think the yellow callipers of the carbon ceramic brakes would be the perfect combination for Neptune Blue.

Totally agree. I’ve ordered Neptune but didn’t get the ceramic Brakes due to cost, but considering painting them yellow after.

I saw this car at my dealership today. There is one other pic posted here with this wheel treatment. Very dramatic and beautiful.
