I'd say match it to the roof, so matte. Why'd you go matte over gloss on the whole roof?? Just curious.

I did the matte on the roof because all my accessories are matte black, grills, side gills, m3 emblem, and exhaust. Plus im more of a matte black guy, the gloss is the flashy for me...

Matte probably works better since your roof is already matte. On a side note, I thought your car didn't have exhaust tips at first LOL. your tips seemed dark enough to blend in the shadows xD.
