Finish on 300CE Air Cleaner

Hi All
I am the very proud owner of a 1991 W124 300CE - 24 midnight blue coupe with 67k km's

I am constantly freshening things up to keep it as immaculate as it is. One thing I can work out is what finish my air cleaner should have. The previous owner a doctor, has in his efforts to do the same has touched up the air cleaner.

Prior to this I had a concourse winning W126 300se with 38k kms and it was quite easy to see on that air cleaner that the finish was semi gloss/gloss

on my coupe it almost looks like unfinished black plastic. Does anyone know what it should look like?. I am very fussy when it comes to originality but can't find a good clear close up photo or do I know anyone that owns another one and it's around $800 AU for a new one. The doctor has sprayed what looks like matt black paint on half of it but stopped, obviously when it didn't look correct. Don

The W124 Discussion Forum is where you'll find your answers. I believe, however, that the air cleaner is a low gloss black.

Here are some pictures found online:
