Matt Black Cars
Protects the paint
I have never got this – people who put seat covers on or those damn stupid bonnet protectors (see lots of American cars with them).
I mean, who benefits? All you do is drive around looking daft/having uncomfortable seat covers scrunching up etc but it doesn't help you at all, just the person who eventually buys the car from you.
Very odd.Posted 7 years ago
I didn't know that was what they were called.
An equally daft name for a daft thing in the first place.
My point is – you drive a car with the damn stupid thing on – it doesn't look in any way cool or useful. It just looks daft. Then you sell the car and the new owner takes it off, throws it away and has a nice chip-free car. And I don't believe the residual price would be any higher for it being 100% chip free anyway.

On a normal POS car, probably not. If your car is worth anything or at all a classic then maybe its worth keeping protected so it still looks good at shows or on resale as a minter.Posted 7 years agopihaSubscriber
I've got a job in Marylebone and quite often there is a Dubai plated CLS Merc and 911 Turbo both in matt black, parked in the same carpark I use. Both look good and the paint finish seems excellent.I would guess they have both had some serious money spent on them as when the owner starts them up the sound of the engines is amazing and far from standard. I think the finish looks very good on the right car and I am liking the look of the Focus.Posted 7 years agosimons_nicolai-ukMember
Seeing a lot of them about. Is this something that manufacturers offer as a 'factory' option or is this an after market thing?
Around London recently have seen BMW X5's, Porches, Bentley, Range Rover as well as a Ford Focus. All looked/were plated as 'new' rather than anything that would be in need of a respray.
Looks interesting but far too 'drug dealer' for my tastes. Seems to be popular with young middle eastern men predominantly.Posted 7 years ago
Errrrmm – most cars can be programmed to have lights on all the time anyway. We don't need gay fairy lights.
I agree they don't have to be, they are just the 'thing' at the moment so I can imagine more manufacturers will start designing them into the clusters. Anyway, LED lights consume less power too.Posted 7 years ago
