Flat black mirror caps?

Anyone ever seen any flat black mirror caps? Or caps with the same texture as the OEM front lip, rear "diffuser" and side bottom trim? I want some black caps but think that would look better than gloss black (on a Tornado Red car).

Haven't seen it myself, but vinyl wrap or plastidip would be a good way to try it out

The TCR GTI comes with flat/matte black mirror caps. I've been on the quest for part numbers with no luck...

I swear I've asked a ton of times when I see pics of the TCR caps and everyone always claimed they were the same glossy ones that have been available. Thanks for those pics!! Clearest pics yet to show they are matte/flat.

It just seems extremely cost effective to 3m vinyl wrap the oem ones, or the cheap gloss black knockoffs.

I installed gloss black on my car, and I was very surprised at how good the knockoff quality was. Wrapping would be very easy and produce a clean finished product.

Indeed man... I am a sucker for OEM stuff. I need to track these down.
