Gloss black wrap on moldings

Has anyone wrapped the dull black moldings on their cx3? If no one has, do you think it would look good?

I think he means the dull black plastic fender arches and the lower body dull black plastic protective strip.
The only problem with shiny gloss black wrap is it show dust, dirt and water marks that attaches to and marrs the plastic,
making it look dirty.

A little later to the party here....

When I first bought the car in April, I thought that it needed glossy pillars. I got my windows tinted (18% Suntek Carbon, all around), and thought that now is the perfect time to wrap the pillars in Avery Gloss Black vinyl film. While it's not perfect, it's perfect enough for me!
