Any Tips on Matte White Vinyl Wrap?

So, thinking about wrapping the car this spring. Decided on matte white.

However, the more I read about it, the more I heard about staining and difficulty in cleaning matte white. Specifically by people who have wrapped their cars, which makes it more concerning.

I picked up a small sample of 3M 1080 Matte White and put one coupon on the trunk rear and one in front of the driver door. Anyone who is familiar with Toronto winters knows that 2-3 weeks of this stuff will put it through its paces (including -20*C, and multiple car washes). The side coupon held up well, but the rear has what appears to be rail dust and cannot be removed with a microfibre cloth and quick detailer.

Now, keep in mind that this is my DD. Is Klasse sealant a viable option? Or am I over my head here?
