Stealth PPF My Skyscraper Grey G80 Or not

I’m going to PPF my entire car this coming week. A buddy of mine tells me I should stealth PPF it. I’d like to get everyone’s opinion on that. Remember skyscraper gray is a metallic paint. How will the stealth PPF affect that? I am truly ignorant on the subject so as much information from experienced people as possible would be greatly appreciated. Like maintenance on it and how it will affect the paint beneath it. Also will it literally look matte color? Lots of information needed. If there are other detailed threads on this I should go to let me know. Thanks.

Have the PPF installer do a piece of the stealth and normal film next to each other on the car and compare the two side by side. Others on here have done it to PB or IOMG and it's looked good.

There are a few pics of Hockenheim silver M2Cs on that forum that have used the stealth PPF. Not skyscraper shade but still metallic and could possibly give you an idea.

Check out the photo from the second post in this thread. That photo is what got me leaning towards doing stealth.
