One popular cosmetic feature for cars, in China, is a matte paint job. The first time I saw it I thought someone had forgotten or didn't have time to finish the paint job on their car. It seemed odd though because it was quite an expensive car. I've now seen these dull looking cars all over and they are usually black/grey and quite boring looking. I guess if you are trying to stick out or be different this might be for you. To me the car just looks dirty and unfinished.
Here are a couple examples I've seen around town.
