Yes, they may well have improved the finish: I think my M4P may have been one on the earliest, maybe a year after 'black chrome' came out.
I'm as careful as I can reasonably be but that M4-P went straight to India with me and has since travelled tens -- probably hundreds -- of thousands of miles to the US, Mexico, China and elsewhere, as well as a lot of Europe, sometimes by motorcycle, by Land Rover and other more-or-less arduous means. It's just come back from a 2345 mile round trip to Portugal in a 1972 Land Rover 88.
My real point, though, is that my increasingly battered black paint MP looks romantic; the M4-P merely looks worn. I don't really mind as long as they both work...
