Matte Black or Gloss Black

Ok my akrym lip is getting painted its previously painted gloss black with faded carbon on the side but i decided to have it painted the entire front lip so my question is all my aftermarket parts are matte black

side grill
front grill
wheels

are all matte black so should i just get the front lip painted matte black?

Oh one more i was also thinking of replacing my front side grills to performance so having matte front lip might not look so good

So my question is what dobu prefer matte or gloss?

I would maintain the theme and either do it all gloss or all matte. Your window trim comes gloss black from the factory so you may want to match that.

Go gloss, you won't regret it. Here's a pic of one of our recent examples.
