point is why metal in the first place when you have a lighter option.

getting aftermarket suspension(?) would do the trick, not a Metal kit.

matt finish surely will rock till the issues with the cleaning arise. on the other hand did somebody mention the black matt plastic films that stick over the paint??? please pardon me for not knowing the exact name of it.

i mean u cud cover ur beauty with that. since its plastic no issues with cleaning (it cud be more roughly used while cleaning & even if there are ny scratches you can simply peel off that area's sticker & put a new one.

but if you do that...it wont look whole...as in you get roles of matt black stickering and 1 sheet is not wide enough for the whole car...so u will probably have to have like 2 lines of a diff stickering running along...

For heavens sake leave it the colour you bought it in. Matt black looks horrible. IMHO.

saw the car today looks good in the sample black for sure. also liked the normal black too. i think overall it should come out very nice with the matte black for sure. front bumper in metal is close to 5kgs only.
