I think the thing with matte is that it matches the trim!

Re: Vinyl help!

looking for the rest of my pics from when I did the mod but they must be on my old photobucket acct., I like the gloss myself just have to treat it just like paint because it will scratch...but a little wax and it always looks great!

Re: Vinyl help!

Matte matches the trim, gloss matches the window.

I don't think you can go wrong with either. In fact, I think gloss may look better.

I was convinced after seeing this pic;
