Need opinions about black out vynil - Matte vs Satin vs Gloss

Hey guys,

Need some help with this... please see the picture to see what the car currently looks like.

I'm going to be changing out the following and will black out the front and rear at the same time:

-Heritage Grille
Front Chevy Emblem (IOM/Chrome)

-Havoc Rear Diffuser
Rear Chevy Emblem (IOM/Chrome)

So, here's the deal... the car came with the hood & hockey stripes in matte black. What I wanted to do was add the heritage grille and the havoc diffuser in gloss black, for a sleeker, shinier finish to contrast the bright orange paint. I was also going to black out the rear & front with gloss black and apply darker tint to the front & rear lights.

Now, my dilemma is this:
-Will it look odd with the matte stripes on the car?
If so, should I just do everything in matte black?

I personally think the gloss black looks WAY better than the cheap plastic look matte black gives on the grille & diffuser...

I'd do everything in Matt black based on your existing stripes.
There isn't big enough a difference for me to justify painting the diffuser and grill. They both look good just plane black and you don't have to worry about paint chips which will definately happen on both.

If your stuck on getting them painted cuz u think it looks cheap unpainted, I would get satin black stripes to match.

+1 - unless you want to go for broke, and have your stripes painted on so they match the glossy look......
