Looks fine to me. My 45 dollar matte ones got chipped. These things can take a beating so going cheap isn't a bad idea. Looks good with with gloss Jet Black IMO.

I think the matte is cheap in the sun however. Pros and cons to everything.

Went with the gloss black BMW performance grilles from the dealer with my CCA discount months ago- they still look like new and are so much better on my BSM vert than the matte ones. IMO matte only goes well with colors.
