Question Poll: Matte or Gloss Black Performance Spoiler?

So I'm going to be picking up a high kick performance spoiler within a week or two and was wondering what you guys thought would look best on my car. I have a LeMans Blue e92 335i M-Sport with 25% tint that will have gunmetal VB3s installed this week and a new matte black duke dynamics rear diffuser in about a month.

With that said should I go matte black on the spoiler to match the diffuser or gloss black to match the shadowline trim?

I'm leaning toward matte black but i dont want it to look odd or unfinished. I want it to flow with the car. Has anyone seen a matte black one/have one? Im not really a fan of the carbon fiber look BTW.

Gloss black, matte accents seem cheap to me. Paint the diffuser Gloss Black later on when funds are sufficient. I advise the same when people ask for wrapping their roof.

This is what im most concerned about. But the diffuser gloss black? I never gave that much thought. I haven't seen one in person gloss black but i'll have to look for some pics unless someone has some

Gloss without question. Matte for a white car IMHO.

I like your decisiveness. lol unless I see some pics that show me matte on a blue car I'm leaning heavily towards gloss black now.

Lets put it this way, I didnt see gloss in person before I ordered them. Its $100 for the pair for oem performance ones. If you dont like them Im sure you could trade with someone on the forum no problem. I love my gloss tho no regrets on my end.

A pair? I think he's referring to a spoiler.
