If I were you, I'd just get something like Alpine White. Alpine White is always an easy sell at the end and it will go good with any other color, mod, set of rims that you throw at it. If you must have frozen, and do e get me wrong, frozen is sick aF, then get it wrapped if they make a color like that.

Those frozen colors are SEX!! Pure and simple. However, wrapping would be smarter. Just like its been said, when you're tired of it, just peel and you're good to go; rather than being stuck with a matte paint job you don't like. If you must though, my vote is for the frozen red.

You have to be way to careful owning a car with these colors

Thanks for posting - nice pictures!

Agree with the majority. Matte paint jobs are a fad, but more importantly (to me) they are a pain to keep up. You cannot polish out scratches - that alone would make me crazy - and you cannot wax or use sealants...or even quick detailer sprays. I shudder to think how these cars will look in 10 years.

As above, if you must, wrap it...

Frozen colors are always stunning! I would love to have a frozen color, but I am too lazy to care for it much so no point in buying one

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

My frozen bronze gran coupe arrives this week. I am a little worried about maintenance issues, but I am not putting too much thought into it. It's a three year lease, so at least I won't have to live with it for that long if it really is that much of a hassle.

I have seen the frozen matte bronze in person on 6 gran coupe. White and tan interior. It is really really stunning. Def a head turner.
I dont think a matte vinyl can match the look of the matte colors i have seen in person.
May be a fad, but they are showstoppers IMHO.
