I like the matte hood inserts on Rangies, but the whole body seems little more than a limited fad that can little more than negatively impact resale later. They all remind me of the kids in High School "restoring" and old Camaro and not having enough money to get further along than rattle can primer.

Not even that good. That Camaro looks worlds more appropriate in primer than a newer Rangie. :mrgreen:

Wow! I've been thinking about getting a new paint job on the rover... I'm highly considering going matte now! Same silver... just matte with black grill and headlights, vents, taillights... etc. Very awesome pictures! Thanks for posting.

The resale value of this one doesn't seem to be affected much. 1.5 million Euros give or take, the last time I checked.



Where is the drool smiley?

Those matte Rangies are ugly - and the wheels make them look even worse.

If i was to consider a matte pâint , i would definetly consider white , and it woulfd have to be just the same paint as the original paint pattern . ie i would keep the original front and side grills , door handles etc .
Only other coloring would be probably dargening of the front and rear lights , burt more grey than black .

i know some of you guys have photoshop ... so if one wants to play .... Feel free , you could use the saudi red one as the model .

My truck is a stock 2002 Première Edition , same as the US 2003 HSE , With OEM 19' wheels .

PS the white was not available when the RR MKIII came out in 2002 , if i'm correct .

Why do I sense that the "matte" phenomenon is headed towards paint products with anechoic properties (as used to paint the radomes on aircraft)...thereby significantly reducing radar/laser detectability... :!: :twisted:

there's matte and then there's satin. the reventon is satin and i think that for certain select automobiles, it looks great. the rovers we've been looking at are pretty much matte and it gives the impression of being unfinished. even in satin, i don't think the rover is the right car for the look

It's no rusty hood trend.
