Orange peel and MB's Ceramiclear coat

Hi all,

I've noticed a fair number of black MBs with a good amount of orange peel. I've also read that orange peel is seen more after the introduction of the harder Ceramiclear coat (2003-4).

Has anyone else noticed this as well or have any info on it?

Thanks in advance,

There has always been Orange peel on the paint. There are few cars without Orange peel, but I own one. The LS460 is wet-sanded twice at the factory to prevent Orange peel and perfect the paint. It really shows on black.
