    What paint finish have I got?

    Do modern Mercs. have some sort of lacquer coating? 16 month old car is shiny enough but I sense a little claybaring might remove some minor swirling, then a cleanser (Poorboys did wonders on previous black car) and a wax could improve matters, for I want a really deep wet-look finish. If...

    Matt finish

    When in the local dealer I saw 2 matt finish C classes, one grey and the other a yellow/white. I can't say they appealed and although brand new they didn't look very clean. The salesman said they had sold a couple but he understood they are a swine to maintain. Also the finish is not very long...
