hey guys/girls... need advice/opinions...
So I have my car booked in with a friend of a friend's garage who does wrapping for next saturday and doing it for a good price (£80 all in ;) ), I'm having the roof, wing mirrors and back diffuser wrapped black.... here's the predicament....
I don't know whether to go for gloss or matte? my friend said gloss would look a bit tacky, but I think matte is hard to maintain and personally I don't like the feel of it etc... what do you guys think??

Have something to contribute?

My personal choice would be Matt , i'm wondering if the Gloss would show small scrathes and swirl marks after a few washes.
That's a very good price to get that done. and i'm sure it will look great
