Color of OEM silver Gauge rings?

Hello,

What color are the OEM silver gauge rings?
I'm mean what kind of silver? Matt or glossy?
Silver like the horse shoe around the shifter of a different silver?

if someone has pics....

thanks

Should be just like the horse shoe around the shifter and match the same finish as the other Artic Silver trim part that you may have inside the car. I would say glossy too.

the horseshoe is not glossy at all, it matt and not really smooth!
like you said the other silver parts (except the silver trim line in the dash (with the airbag script) are glossy, that's why I ask about the finish of the rings

Sorry, I've seen it both ways. I bought my rings from an after market place and they came Artic Silver glossy. Same for the horse shoe part. I've seen it both matt and glossy artic silver. The mat finsih almost looks like it has a gliter effect. Not for me.

I sanded and polished mine. Gives it a sort of retro look.
