Yes, it is matte. The wheels generally look like they're matte too unless I clean them with a product that adds some sheen. It was all done at the dealer. In retrospect I would've preferred a gloss wrap, then change the rear chrome garnish to the LX gloss black garnish and leave the emblem the standard chrome.

I ordered the Honda center console liner accessory. Being made of out of some sort of thermoplastic with a silicone additive it makes it easy to clean as well. The back lip tucks under the center console panel to hold it securely. Only downside is dust sticks to it very easily. They make it in orange and blue as well, if you're trying to bling the interior up, but neither color would match yellow/black that I have going on.

Anyway, overall it's a nice touch - nothing earth shattering. I think I paid $25 from Honda for it. Pics below.

I like how the vinyl wrap flows from the roof, onto the wing area. nicely done!


Did you do the wrap yourself? if yes .... was it hard, and, any tips for someone that is looking to wrap theirs?
