Couple of questions

Iím looking to purchase in December to take delivery in march. I would like to see if there are any holiday incentives. I would also like to take delivery in sc at the performance track . Most of the previous incentives mention you must take delivery by a certain date. So not sure if this will work? My next point is my first choice in color is frozen grey my second is San Fran red . first ? Is frozen paint the same as matte ? Is it as hard to take care of as advertised? I will keep it garaged I do not mind washing the car? They also say it is hard to get a scratch out. Is this true? Just not sure if itís worth it or not. Thanks

The frozen grey paint has a satin metallic matte finish - so it doesn't look like the plastic matte vinyl wraps you see on some cars. Since matte paints don't reflect nearly as much light as glossy ones, they actually conceal small scratches quite well. However, you can't really buff/gloss out larger scratches, so the scratch issue is a double-edged sword. There are ceramic coatings that you can have a detail shop put on the car, and there are soaps and cleaners that will keep your paint in great condition (my recommendation is Dr. Beasley's: https://www.drbeasleys.com/matte-pai...ription_tabbed). Overall it takes a bit more work and care to keep the paint looking in mint condition, but it's not a massive additional workload.

So if someone keys your car you have to live with It? Also does that mean if you get in an accident itís harder to fix at auto shop?and if so is there a higher insurance rate for these cars?thanks for the quick response

Hasn't affected my insurance. If someone keys your car badly, you'll likely need to have the affected panel repainted.
