Matte black stripes or Glossy Black stripes?

Need some help!! After seeing Selena's BB stripes...I am sold. Love the way they come down over the mail slot and over the rear spoiler. So I called vinylgraphics.net and they have the Glossy black that is warrantied but the Warrantied Matte black will not be out until the end of the month. Understanding that I have to get what I want..I wanted to see what everyone's thoughts are on which would look better and why? Also keep in mind I have already picked out BLACK wheels for the car. Appreciate any and all thoughts.

1. CGM with Glossy black stripes?
or
2. CGM with Matte black stripes?

Thanks and look forward to your opinions!


So Far:

Glossy--7

Matte--4

Its your car do what you want. I'd go with matte , the stripes might be glossier than the paint. just my opinion.

Just my opinion of course, but I think glossy black on the CGM would look fantastic.
