    Me too... Sorry, but I don't see the recent fascination with matte finishes... I was looking at the blog for the local folks (Exotic Vehicle Wraps) that do the wrapping, and it appears to go back a couple of years or so? I love the shiny look and this is an excellent example for me. They prefer SunTek for ease of folding around corners, so, SunTek Ultimate for my new car! :D

    All good guys and each to their own! In person I don't even think the colors are comparable myself. The stealth is stunning and the ultimate just looks like every other car.

    Just my opinion but a perfectly paint corrected, Suntek wrapped (or any quality clear wrap), and ceramic coated finish is stunning. I just had my X done and even my wife was taken back by the transformation. Now she wants it done to her S.

    But difference of opinion is what makes this world go around. If you're happy that is all that matters.

    Both look great. I have my midnight silver fully wrapped with Xpel Ultimate and love it, but I understand the attraction of the matte finishes. I think if I was younger I would have gone with the matte finish. LOL

    I was all set to do stealth until I saw how beautiful the obsidian black was and the richness of the texture. I switched to ultimate immediately!

    But as has been said before, each to their own. Love the stealth AND ultimate.
