gloss it! with your lower grills glossed adn the panel stripes that are shiny gloss would flow together better.

Gloss black. It will blend in nice with your rims and tints.

You know they do make more than just 2 colors of black...I did my EvoX mod in Satin Black, kinda shinny but flat enough to make it look flat/matte black.

Looks a lot better to me IMO.
