    I'm wondering what would be better suited E-surface or Metallic prints for Car photos?

    Thanks

    It depends on the display lighting, not the content of the image. If you are putting the prints into an album with a crinkled plastic sheeting over them, Metallic prints will probably not look good. If you are displaying them behind glass or a hard-plastic case, Metallic prints can look wonderful, even for the subjects which Mpix suggests should instead be done on the regular paper. I use Metallic printing quite frequently and have been extremely satisfied.
