Gloss/Matte black roof on AW coupe??

I have a Alpine white 330 coupe, with gloss black wheels, matte window trim, and matte grills. I plan on doing carbon fiber CSL trunk/ hood. Looking to get some input from fellow fanatics on what finish to go with on the vinyl roof!

As in you are planning to leave the trunk and hood CF? If so, change that idea. As long as you paint those white, a black roof can look good.

But judging from OP's username he's either not going to get them or leave the cf exposed.

Also i think gloss roof looks better. especially if you have a sunroof

Gloss black homie. You have Gloss black rims which will make it a good match. Not a big deal w/ what black the grills are. You can always change the window trim to floss too, thats an easy one. Also your upcoming CF mods have a glossy look to it so if you leave it exposed it will match closer to gloss black. IDK in the end it's your choice do what you like & what will make you happy in the end
