    Is the tupperware really that soft?

    I've got about 24K miles on my 2016 F6B with the matte finish and it's got dings... Mostly on the cowl and headlights. Is sad that the plastic is that prone to dings. I can't put a coat of wax on it to help protect the paint. What have others done with their matte finishes?
    Thanks!

    I wax mine with Turtle Wax Ice, no while film left behind and still no shine. I know many say don't do it but has been working great for several years for me. Helps to keep dirt from sticking to it.

    I ceramic coated mine. Seems to be holding up.

    I just saw that I have a crack in my right side mirror housing. It’s on the inside near the rubber. I can only think a stone from the road got up in there. It’s actually finger sized and pushed in. Seems in an odd spot and there’s no other damage around it. Kind of off topic, but it made me think of it.

    I didn't see any mention of Matte finishes in any of those in the article. Did I miss something?

    It works on any finish. Will not make it look “glossy”. I use Ducky for basic clean up.

    The Bra Honda sells does a great job and looks pretty good on my white 2016. However I'm not sure you can still get them.

    I've used Dr. Beasleys coatings, I do high end detailing on all my vehicles so I splurge on my products, but that's just me.
