Just the outer surround is gloss but we can paint a set in complete gloss for you if you would like.

Would the OEM gloss black kidneys match up with Jet Black or is Jet Black a little different?

It matches VERY well. I don't have any pics, but I had the same question before I ordered mine. In my opinion they look much better than matt black on the JB. Plus, they are OEM quality, made in Germany They are called bmw performance gloss black grills. I ordered mine from Tischer BMW (getbmwparts.com, http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462).
