Default Vinyl Wrap - Flat or Glossy

So im torn between a matte black or a glossy black roof vinyl wrap. Im leaning more towards the glossy because I think it looks like the black glass on the new benz's, I think it looks classier. But I plan on grabbing the Varrs toen knockoff rims in the future which are matte black, so I'm thinking overall the matte roof will look better. Any suggestions. I attached a pic of the rims btw, and my Z is PW.

I'm in the same boat, can decide myself, that's why it hasn't been done yet maybe I'll just leave it alone.

I think matte will look better with the rims.
Also if in the future you want to black out the fangs or rear, that looks beter in matte for sure.
And I think it would then be too busy and not matching if you had a glossy roof and matte front/back.

Gloss black looks hot! The way I see it is, if you are getting matte parts, go matte. But if you're staying mostly stock. Go Glossy. Its classier and sportier overall.

Gloss looks great, but has to be done perfectly. It shows even minor imperfections in the vinyl

I have gloss roof. It looks like Targa roof on Porsche 997, which I love, so for me was there no decision. A lot of people is using black or carbon in matte finish. For me is only nice matte finish on some color (green, orange, or white).
