Solid black or metalic

My solid black gtv is due some cosmetics. Rear bumper,rear wing wing mirrors few parking dents,wear marks in door handle scoops. By the time it's blended in its probably 2/3 of the car. So may end up painting it all. Solid black is a pain in the arse, looks good when clean but shows every mark and needs constant washing.

Would a more modern lacquer over base solid black be better than the original solid colour for durability and future marks? Or should I go metalic black? I have full red style interior

Anyone with a metalic black gtv showing lots of marks?

I've had a metallic black car in the past and thought it was quite good for hiding the marks
