View Full Version : Matte or glossy?

So what would you have your car painted in? The glossy look all cars have or super strange looking Matte? I would personally have the matte cause of how smooth it looks and how stealth you can be.

I feel exactly the same as you Todoroki.

Matte, I've always hated how cars are shiny; only classic cars look good with shiny paint and chromium wheel rims.

Our Land Rover is painted in NATO green and black.

Matte, this is because I hate shiny cars.

The last thing I want to see when driving down a road is a shiny car reflecting the image of the sun, burning my retina. Thanks..

Uh, glossy... I don't like being blinded, but matte cars look stupid, imo.

Matte all the way. Any vehicle with a full carbon-fiber body is sex on wheels.

On a related note, I hate the Piano Black PSP for its gloss coat.

Matte with a bit of trim (<-- car speak) for me.

A little shiny here and there doesn't hurt.

I thought this was going to be a topic about photography and I was all prepared to lambaste those ugly glossy prints people always get.

I know nothing about cars, but I'm going to say matte because matte is always better.

It depends. But I rarely like matte anyways...
Most of the time, I like combination of chrome, metallic and gloss paint, with metallic being my most favourite. The wheels are good in chrome sometimes too.
In the end, it all depends on the car, and your designing skills, because most chrome painted cars I've seen are badly done and are too shiny.
But if done nicely, it can do wonders to a car's looks. I know I have good tastes with these things.

Aww... I thought this was about fingernails...

Um, I guess I'd go with glossy to match my nails.

I really don't know whether my car is matte or glossy. It can be pretty shiny at times, but not in a 'wow, I can see my reflection in this!' kinda shiny. =/

Glossy. I like a Fuchsia Lust paint job fading into a deep red the purple. Yess!

Matte for sure. Ooh<333!!!

Glossy - Pink with hello kitty on there...

I would have mine painted glossy, because that's what cars are made for. >:-)
