i think you gotta go with the glossy, the satin's nice, but it just seems to far away from the norm., when you see a really clean car, you expect to see your reflection you know? if you don't, it just doesn't sit well, cars are just suppose to shine and reflect IMO...

Glossy....... The Satin is nice and different, but for the Crx, go with the glossy. These older cars need all the shine that they can get to stand out from the rest.

I wanted to do a satin black on my crx, but I think that the color looks better on curvy (newer) cars. A shine adds to the edges of older cars, accentuating their rugged looks.

Gloss and here is why....I use to love all black cars and then flat black but to be honest after months of owning one there is NOTHING to compare to a bright shiney car no matter what the age of the car is. It just always seems that a shiney/glossy new paint job on any car just brings it to life.
