I ordered the regular mountain gray, because as beautiful as the matte gray is, the thought of getting a scratch or other paint damage terrifies me. I’m looking at full satin PPF to get the same look.

Ordering mine this week! Planning to get the Magno Matte also so really appreciate your video - looks incredible. I'll be opting for the ceramic coating but did you get a partial PPF also??

Just received AMG EQE with Magno and was wondering how smart that was - even though I, like you, take a huge care of my ride and the EQE will even get PPF. Thanks for great vid! Makes me feel much better about my choice. BTW - great looking car you have!

Nice vid again. Changed my perspective on matt look. Will consider in the next car definitely. Your car looks amazing. My GLA45s still doing great, amazed mini SUV with a performance engine. Btw liked your vid about paddle shift too…

Great video. Just speccing up my EQE (watched your review on that too….great stuff) and was hesitating over the graphite Magno finish. No doubts now 👊🏻

My SL63 is finished in Magno Alanite Grey. Beautiful colour, which I always loved.
Unfortunately, I scratched the rear arch when coming out if the garage. It's just a little mark, less than a thumb print. Here in the UK, there are only a handful paint shops that are Standox certified and stock this colour. Got a quote from two different shops, but they were close together at around £2, 000. Since they cannot match the existing paint perfectly, that need to paint tho whole side of the car in order to look good again. I don't think I'll bother fixing it.

Id go for a matte PPF or satin wrap just for peace of mind

I've got the same magno paint on my a250 which I've had for over a year. I had the same fears about bird poo, dirt etc but it's held up fine no issues. In the end I got it ceramic coated for that extra peace of mind. I would highly recommend a ceramic coating as it makes drying/cleaning much easier!

So jealous!. Booked in for ppf and ceramic coating, but as yet no car!!😂😂. Keep up the good work Adam!👍

if i could choose paint colour it would deffo be the matt grey makes the car look so good, looking after brillant blue metallic is hard work more because of swirling but does look really good in the sun 👍😀

Would you consider getting a wrap? Color match paint job?

Author — Alex Shooter


Great videos mate. I'm struggling to decide what to do. I'm wanting something bigger than my RS without the loss of performance.

Your car the C43 AMG and C53 AMG are on the shortlist.. I haven't driven any of them. Which one should I try first

Author — Jason


doesnt getting a full wrap of ppf around the underlying matte paint stop most scratches etc? and u just have to make sure to go to car washes that are compatible with ppf?

THX m8, nice vid...this makes me at least less scared ordering the mat grey....can't wait the car to arrive.

Hi. I live in California, and it gets pretty hot here. Does leaving the car exposed to the sun, ruin the pain?
