i think gloss black would look nicer, then you get that shine too it. subtle yet effective difference.

it depends on your paint. Im using flat black on the mirrors, and it looks really good.

the reason i don't wanna use flat black is cause when i did my angel eyes i cleaned the grill and i repainted it flat black but it really looked like i didn't do anything i kept thinking did it dry i touched and it was but there wasn't a change so i think gloss black is what im gonna go with.
thanks for answers people's
