Need help deciding front grill colors

Hey guys im stuck in a dilemma with my front grills. My car is Melbourne Red, I was thinking of doing my outer ring part of the grill MR and the inner part gloss black. OR should I just paint all of it gloss black. I dont want matte or flat black because I feel it looks empty when its not glossy and it will like better because of the window trims, etc.. Thanks in advance

I would do the outer part gloss black and leave the inner matte. I love the black/red contrast like on this car:

I agree with Nick on the contrast. Only thing with the painted grill is that it will chip over time. The matte won't!
