    Hey guys,

    Going to get my side moulds front and back bumper inserts finished in black along with my Wheels refurbished (with a chrome lip) finished in Black.

    Not sure whether to finish all the above in Satin Black or Gloss Black.
    I know Costa (S3 CYP) has done his in satin and looks neat.

    What do you guys think? If anyones got any pics please post. Thanks

    Once ive done them ill finally post some pics up.

    yup OEM colour for me, just treat it like paint work and wax it.....

    if you must go for the black id go satin as the other 2 options will be too OTT in either direction...satin is a happy medium
