Black gloss or carbon gloss wrap?

Ok so I've decided to wrap my roof but can't decide between plain gloss black, or carbon gloss to match my bonnet.

Just looking for a few people's opinions on what would look best and also the best place to get decent vinyl from.

Cheers

Matching the bonnet would be the obvious option

The bonnet is made from Carbon fibre ( not wrapped ) the reason I'm not sure what to do is I'm unsure if the carbon gloss vinyl will match it or look cheap compared to the real thing. Was hopeing someone on here had tried something similar before and save me taking a punt.

Cheers for the comments so far

I'd go for carbon too.

Btw your car looks sweet in that pic.
Ave you done anything to the headlights? They look really dark in the pic but could just be the angle.

Vinyl arrived and I've thrown some on an old iPod to compare although cant get a good picture ( see below 3D carbon on the left gloss carbon on the right)

Oll if you pm me your address ill send you a small sample of both to compare.

Hi ian just got the samples through the post thank you very much. In my opinion the 3D looks better in the flesh as the Gloss looks sort of like a hologram in certain light. maybe the 3D with a clear vinyl over the top will give more of the Lacquered effect

No worries mate, I was thinking the same going to order a couple of a4 sheets and have a play. Fingers crossed it will work as I don't think the 3d will match real carbon.
