    In the "first ride" videos from the launch event I thought the matte paint finish looked terrible. All I saw were finger prints everywhere.

    The front looks beautiful to me in the new pictures. The upward slant is less evident there.

    Looking good. This will stir up more attention for the Model 3. Tesla doesn't need to spend a lot of money on advertising when social media can do it for free.

    I honestly would LOVE to own that color, if I didn't have full knowledge on how much of a pain it is to maintain and the cautions that come with owning a matte finish. It's beautiful, but not realistic for a daily driver and a family car. *sigh*

    That black matte is seriously making me reconsider getting a red car. My previous two cars have been silver and black, so I wanted to switch it up. That black matte though....

    I thought that too, but then I also thought: "I'm not going to let a bunch of drooling journalists paw my car all night, either...."
