Looks great! IMHO and FWIW, Any colour that breaks the unending lines of black, white, dark blue, grey and silver cars parked on our sea front would be most welcome! :)

Not sure I'd choose it, but it looks nice. £5-6k to do the paint and you didn't spec the colour wheel hubs....... :).

As an aside, I thought ceramic was to help keep the car shiny? What is the benefit for a matt finish?

Thanks to everyone for your comments! We were not specifically looking for a color or finish, though I am partial to satin finish. We asked the installer to recommend colors that "pop" and I used the new Range Rover release color as an example of what we like. The ceramic coat was provided as standard with the wrap and is there for protection and ease of cleaning more than anything.

A few people have recommended blacking-out the wheel and windows as much as possible, which I tend to agree with.

love it man, do you. i think that harsh light in the photos isn't doing you any favors--would love to see it at night/dusk.

Respect for a bold choice - but this brownish-rusty shade looks like an Oldsmobile from the late 80s so probably not for me

Now slammed on the ground on Vossen or Spyder style wheels and fully blacked out it’ll look cool

Since color attraction is subjective, I won't opine. For the uniqueness you have created, its 5 Star. Congratulations - 50 shades of gray and away. BTW, my car is Jet Black Metallic, so my $$$ is not where my mouth is :(.

+1 for the choice, I really like it.

It actually looks almost like a matte version of my Taycan 4S with factory cherry red metallic -- but without the metallic!

Eye catching for sure!

I like the color but would have done gloss instead of matte. I think it would pop more.

Those pictures came directly from the installer. Will get some better pictures; preferably dusk as soon as possible.
