Default What is the difference between matte black, black, and flat black?

I need to know the difference between these because I will be purchasing hood stripes and side stripes and they have to be the exact same as the image links below.

Black would be more subdued, white would stand out a lot and silver would match the lighter parts of the interior and match well. Ford offers a tan color convertible top with a color close to this on the 2009 Mustang but my personal opinion is that it would be wierd on a Challenger. Ford offers a tan leather interior to tie it all together and we all know there are not a lot of interior color choices on the Challenger.

If you feel you must have some type of stripe package on your Chally - two words - carbon fiber I think it would look fabulous on the titanium - but I don't have any pics of what that would look like. Best of luck.

The silver stripes that come on a black car would also work without standing out too much.

I think that for Dark Titanium, I, too, would go with the silver. Carbon fiber stripes are so 08-ish. You've got an 09; go with the modern look.

I am still a fan of carbon fiber - always - exhausts on motorcycles, etc. I will share the 08ish of carbon fiber with my husband so he has that info before he makes a final decision about stripes for our 2009 Black SRT8

Mine didn't (I know you weren't asking me ). I preferred it that way. The carbon fiber hoods will be out soon. I'll have it painted bright silver with the carbon exposed where the stripes should be. Then cleared over. Viola!

Ours didn't come with the stripes either and it looks sweet - the Black is so sleek and sexy - I think stripes get in the way. But as you see my login - and sig line - I am not the primary driver[sm=loveeyes.gif] However, I do have some influence...

Personally, I think the Challenger, no matter what color, needs stripes of some kind. It's just too much car to NOT break up the color somehow (which is why I have the RidgerGraphix rocker-pannel stripe with the word "Challenger" cut out in script on the side). For a black car, I'd DEFINITELY go with silver for the contrast. But then, I've never liked wearing ties the same color as my shirts.
