    er yeah!

    One is like glass and the other has shiny bits of metal under the lacquer.

    I'm not a fan of metalic colours.

    Same here, much harder to touch over metallic paint too. I like either flat greens/greys/khakis on older 4x4s or if it has to be polished up then a nice deep red. Oh god deep red.

    yeah, it has little silver bits in metallic paint... although my car is classed as 'pearlescent', i think it's the same kind of thing.
