Yes they are satin.. But not the gold paint that's the same as they use on all GTs, its the nitro on top.. One of the reasons they are cheaper is because they have a very thin nitro finish.. It takes any more layers and man hours to get them shiny.

HOWEVER, I have seen people polish those finishes up and you can get them quite nice.

As demonstrated in this vid

If I remember correctly, they were first released at $1,149. Shortly soon after they dropped to 1,099.

Haha... I understand.
I had the choice of either and went with the gold top.


$800 is not a bad price, but there will be gold ones out there. ;)

Interesting, I'll have to give that a try sometime.

Have been using another Meguiar's product with great results. This compound and polish, plus a lot of elbow grease will do amazing things. ;)
