Finalising GTS 4.0 Options - Gloss Black Vs Matt

Just finalising the GTS options; I cannot decide whether to go for gloss black front sports package, side vents and rear lower bumper or keep them matt. 
 
Anyone got real life pictures to throw up? 
 
Virtual pics below: (for some reason I can only insert 1 picture)

Google for some images of 981 GTSs where you might get more of an idea.  It was called the "GTS Exterior Package" or similar.

I’ve no idea but I would think that gloss would stand out well against brighter and bolder colours like red, blue and yellow; against grey, probably less so?
 
To help your decision you could always have a look round your local Porsche dealership to see if any Caymans, Boxsters or 911s have gloss trim.
 
If you drive fast enough no one will notice!

Are your wheels gloss or Matte?

Keep them matt. The gloss will scratch as soon as the wind blows over it and then you'll regret it.
 
I try and avoid gloss black interior/exterior trim and alloys as they set my OCD on overdrive!!

Regardless of which you go for some Zunsport grilles are an absolute must, unless you really like holes in your radiators. 
 
I had my grilles fitted as soon as they were available, and there was already a huge hole in the centre rad, fortunately so far it's not leaking.

All good comments guys thanks, and grills are on the list, don't know whether it'll be Zunsport though. 
 
Dan made a good comment about OCD (I can be a bit like that) so maybe matt is better for me! ha!

You can also polish matt but it will become gloss
