MY 2017 was Modern Steel Metallic, because I couldn't find a black RTL-E that wasn't a black edition, and Metallic paint jobs hide a lot of scratches, the problem was/is Honda's metallic paints aren't very metallic so they don't pop and in turn kind of look ho-hum. I lived with it for a little over 3 years and really didn't think much of it until I got my 2020 in the black I wanted, which still isn't a great black, but I love it so much more, especially when it's clean.

I have no idea why most of Honda's colors are kind of lack luster but they are, even something as basic as black or white can make a huge difference, ever notice some manufacture's paint colors just pop and others look boring. Anyway, yes the Modern Steel isn't a head turner in my opinion but it's not offensive either.

as an aside, The best head turning combo (in my opinion) is a red RTL-E that has all the chrome replaced with black, but I do love my black with chrome to give it some contrast
