Isn't Satin Beige Metallic...

...just a fancy way of saying flat, speckly brown?

That is champagne metallic clearcoat in Cadillac '92 speak. Or at least it was until the Florida sun beat the shit out of it.

(There is a running joke about the prevalence of that color range nowadays. People buy it they say predominantly because it doesn't show dirt. That is because it is the color of dirt.)

Sorry, the seller sounds a bit creepy. I'm betting he's had carnal knowledge of the air filter snorkel.
