thats the way i feel, and matte doesn't look cheap, and theres so many colours to choose from also gives the trim pieces a nice texture

because its permanent, this stuff is just as good , if not better with a better finish and nicer texture to it, plus if you get tired, u peel and keep stock or do another colour, and this stuff is pretty durable with at least 4 coats

its a cheap alternative for a nice look, but if you plan on touching it all the time you might get annoyed since it is a textured feel. not what im looking for inside a car

hahaha a serious question, but what are you looking for in a car? cuz leather has a textured feel, and so does other soft touch surfaces, in general i just think plastidip is a better alternative to dupli colour and removable, also doesn't give off a cheap plastic look, and if you get bored of it, its removable and therefore equals win (no bashing intended , everyone is allowed to do what they want with their car and has own tastes , which is dually noted , and in no way am bashing your taste )

The thing with dark matte finishes is that it will show oily fingerprints and will be a little harder to clean than a gloss finish.

But done properly it will look good.
