Black Grills on Black Sapphire Metallic

Opinion needed: I have a 2012 750Li Black Sapphire Metallic, which grills option looks best on a black car?

(A) Flatt Black
(B) Gloss Black
(C) Black Black inner and chrome outers (I've seen it done on the F10)
(D) Keep it stock

Also, where did you purchase yours?

B. Gloss Black. I used to run that on my old Black Sapphire Metallic. Make sure it's the LCI grille.

Thanks for the input. I can't find gloss black for the F02, the OEM is semi gloss (looks matt) as seen above.
