Matte Countryman

Has anyone come across a matte coloured countryman in real life?

I've seen a few pics of them on the internet but I'm not sure how much of an impact they have in the flesh. I'm wanting to have my countryman in some matte colour but I'm not sure.. Military green maybe?

Matt? you mean like some of the BMW M3s have, a "satin" finish sheen silver grey or black top coat?
They are difficult to look after, you cant touch it up successfully, you cant polish it.
Its not exactly matt, true matt would be army lorry/tank green

Yea like a satin finish. I've got a friend who has a matt grey renault clio and I love the finish of it. He's told me thats its a nightmare to keep tidy and clean but the appearance is amazing. I just haven't seen a countryman in one before

It would be specialist applied paint after purchase, MINI dont offer that option from the factory.
Of course you could consider wrapping it then when you sell it you could have it removed and revert back to the standard finish, bet it would be cheaper to do too?

We have a matt hatch in the neighbourhood and it looks nice, but I am pretty sure a matt countryman will look ugly.

Personal preferences, but I think the Countryman looks ugly anyway, a sort of mid life overweight and pregnant MINI.

haha that's a fair point but I bought it more for the space. Not the best looking MINI from the range I agree but its very practical and yes I think I would go down a wrapping route just so if I need to sell it a few years down the line I can bring it back to its original colour.

I've actually been ringing around today asking how much I'd be looking at for wrapping the whole car. Didn't realise that it actually IS cheaper than spraying it. Trying to look for somewhere decent though as the places I've rang look like back street garages :-/
