Help me choose a color..PLZ!!

I am ordering a 2011 Cyber Gray 1LT at the beginning of the year and wondering if i should paint/powder coat the rims, emblems, and rear tail light bezels flat black or glossy black. I dont want any chrome on the car so everything is getting painted/powder coated.

Please help, Thankyou

I think glossy is the way to go. The flat black always looks dirty to me. Like its covered in brake dust or something.

sicker than most.

I agree, I saw a CGM tahoe with flat black rims on it today while I was at lunch and I thought it looked dirty.

I am going with glossy black!!

Thankyou everyone
only 1 month until I put in my order

I agree, too. I had the matte black stripe on my trunk and it always looked dirty and really showed water spots...so I wiped it off constantly...lasted about 3 weeks.

Glossy is definitely the way to go.
