Opinions on matte grey M5s?

I saw this e60 M5 in London, it was wrapped in this matte grey-ish color. I'm not so sure whether I like it or not, but what's your opinion?

I would get grey/graphite rims to start with on this car...

matte colors do look good but just not a fan of that specific color...i think matte white or blue would a lot better!

looks great, personally I wouldnt wrap my car. in my opinion that M5 just needs different wheels of a different finish to contrast with the matte finish of the car.

I like the matte as long as it has a lil metallic to it. I don't care too much for the flat matte colors, looks like primer. Takes the classiness out the vehicle and reminds me of all the fast and furious cars around that have body kits and can't afford to get them painted.

matte finishes on cars is a here now, gone tomorrow trend. glossy, shiny finishes on cars have looked good for what, 120 years? this is going to be all over with very, very soon.

I like it. I have a 2013 Triumph Storm, and got it in matte graphite, it looks GREAT!

would love to wrap my 550i in the same.

My two Chevy Vehicles are white. Would be good for my European rides to match
