Designo Magno matt paint long term ownership

I am looking to buy a slightly used 2016 GLA45. It has Designo Mountan Grey Magno paint which is a matt paint finish. I have seen cars at my local dealership in this paint and they look great new. My GLA 45 is going to be my daily driver in San Francisco area. Can anyone please comment on the long term ownership issues with this paint (if any)? I understand the different care needed. Should I buy or not buy a GLA with this paint? Thanks.

I have it. its the best looking paint, but cant bring the car to car wash, so if you got no space at home to wash yourself , then dont buy it.
google -- dr. beasley car wash products.
i got show and wax. was you ll need to do 2 per year, ones before winter/snow and one before summer.
Very ez to do not like regular was.
They have videos on the web or you can call them as well. nice people.

I have space at home to wash the car so no worries there. Just wondered how the paint held up during normal use as it will live outside mostly and be a daily driver.

mine is 2015 and looks good.
any funny stain i saw or stuff like tar from highway comes off easily with rinsing/wiping the car or when washing it with special soap i got for dr. beasley.
The key is to ply that the wax they sell.
