is satin a semi-gloss? If it is go Satin, Do 50% gloss or something like that. Much nicer than matte finish.

I went with gloss black. Satin is not bad either.

Hyper black looks horrible.

I like the polished finish on those. I wouldn't change it. However if you must I prefer satin black to gloss.

Cool! Post pics after wheels are painted and exhaust is installed. I wanted to do satin and it was recommended to go with gloss because they are easier to clean.

I've thought about this on my jet black. I think satin would look best unless you're going for the complete blacked out look then it doesn't matter.
