Default Vehicle wrap matte or gloss what would u choose ?

I'm thinking of wrapping my car and I'm down to three colors just not sure on what wrap to go with matte or gloss. Any experiences would be helpful I've heard that the matte material is maintenance free. I'm also going to get the the door jams and doors done. I'm not ruling out a color like grabber blue just a tad darker or a color like fords got to have it green - the metallic or even a orange in gloss. Every time I look at the small samples my mind changes on what color to pick.

Matte metallic blue


















Or cosmic blue wrap






M

Or gloss metallic blue






I know lots of people here have some good ideas and sick cars and just asking on what u would do there is no right or wrong answer.

I like some of the matte colors, but I honestly hate the matte blue. Looks very cheap.

I think matte is gonna be on its way out. It does look really good on some cars though.

Yes I know from working with it. It looks awesome but is prone to showing finger prints and can show marks just from your fingernail
