Matte Stripes or Gloss Stripes?

I have a silver 2015 GT and am debating upon shiny or not shiny.. The ingot silver is very bright and I think it would contrast well with matte on the other hand I think that the gloss stripes will look just as good. Any opinions? Going to get them done on Wednesday.

Tough call, shiny black vinyl does show scratches easily.

I have Matte on my black 2012, and I love them. If you are on the fence, I would go with shiny. The matte is a little more work when it comes to detailing, you are not supposed to get wax on them. I say suppose because I have seen posters here say they waxed them. I use a matte sealer from chemical guys. If anyone decides on this product, contrary to the directions it is a wipe on wipe off product and should be used in under 80 degree weather, and in shade. I talked to someone on the phone at CG before applying.

I think with silver you could do either. Here's gloss on SGM.

What about having 1 matte between 2 gloss ones, or vice-versa?
or matte stripes, & have gloss ones on top, with a little matte on each side?
or... one side glossy & one matte? lol
