What shade (gloss or matte) are the decals

on the 997 GT3 RS (the earilier version that came in signal green and orange). I am going to add the boxster script decals to my car and need to know what shade of vinyl to use (gloss black or matte black).

Several of my friends own them and I see them fairly often, and I recall reflection; I'd say gloss, but not completely certain.

Take a look at this video and you can see reflection in the striping

Yeah...it looks to be gloss in the video...

I was almost certain it was matte but I guess I was wrong. Thinking of painting my sport classic II rims black as well and leave the bead/lip polished so gloss would probably match better anyways.
