Roof Wrap Opinions

Ok, so I'm getting my windows tinted on tuesday with the Hüper Optik ceramic tint, 50% windshield and 20% around, and was thinking about getting my roof wrapped while they have my car. The only problem is the place I'm getting it done at only does matte black or carbon fiber wraps. My car is AW with shadow-line trim, gloss black kidney grilles, etc. So my question is should I hold out and get it done later in gloss black so it will go better with the rest of my car, or should I bite the bullet ad just get it done in the matte black or carbon fiber. I want to make sure my car looks clean so pictures of matte vs. gloss would be very helpful.

P.S. I have reflector replacements so no need to tell me to get some, just haven't had time to put them on.

Definitely wait for gloss black. Sounds like that company is retarded if they don't offer every color they can to make a sale.

They said it's because it scratches easily and they don't want to have to deal with that. Is hat something else I should be concerned about?

No many people have it. You just have to use a felt tip to apply it. I'd be afraid to get work done by them tbh.

Gloss. Matte black looks cheap and ugly, fake carbon fiber looks like exactly that - fake carbon fiber.

Definitely what I was afraid of. I'm just going to hold out and find someone who knows that they're doing and do it in gloss. Thanks for the help
