Jet Black... opinions on how to mod...

So, I just picked up my new Jet Black ZCP..... I am looking to make it a little more 'my own'. Can't decide between matte black gills and grills, or glossy... or even the 'Edition' black chrome pieces...

I searched for pics, but couldn't really tell if some of them were glossy or matee or ????

Would LOVE to see pics of your jet blacks with tasteful mods and also hear your opinions....

The ZCP wheels are staying... the rest is up in the air...

Thanks much!

glossy is better in my opinion, though i did a compromise, glossy frame matte slats.. imo all matte looked cheap against the black body. Also I thought there was a jet black thread..

I wish I had some better pics for you, but I guess a couple iphone pictures are better than nothing! I'll take some better shots eventually. I have basically a full black out going, all gloss black grilles, black emblems, powdercoated wheels, oss black out lights, and next week getting the eisenmann race ceramic coated black as well!

I have the same car. I run the matte black side markers,matte black grills, 35% tint and the ACS roof spoiler paint to match with carbon fiber roof. The last appearance mod i am considering is a rear diffuser. Probably a Arkym in matte or a Challenge in carbon fiber. The only concern is making sure the weave will match the oem roof.
