Flip a coin...IMO they both look good with MW. Sorry I know that was completely unhelpful.

Completely personal opinion - get what YOU like. If you get something for the sake of pleasing others, you're just going to end up regretting it.

For me, personally, I like the semi-gloss between the two.

Semi gloss - after a few days driving they look near matte anyway.

Full gloss or semi.

When gloss or semi gets brake dust on them, they look exactly like matte anyway - best of both worlds.

Gloss or matte is my favorite on white but like everyone says, they turn matte in about two days anyway haha. And I meant full gloss

Semi gloss. That's what we do for mineral white cars. Matte doesn't go well with MW.

Gloss is hard to keep clean man. Once you see the clean gloss look, you don wanna get them dirty. Depends on u if u wanna clean once a day for clean look all the time. I do.
