Shadowline trim on Space Gray: matte or gloss?

I'm leaning towards matte since most of the other black trim is matte, but what do you all think?

Other exterior mods include carbon fiber grilles, hood vents, and mirror caps.

i prefer gloss, but since youre already going matte with the other trim pieces you might as well go matte

which ever you end up going with, IMO you should match it all the way thru...gills, grills, vents, splitters and diffusers...etc...

The CF parts are glossy, but parts of the stock BMW trim are matte.

This is a tough decision...
