hey guys
I just ordered my msport rear bumper and was wondering how I should paint it and my side splitters. should I paint the diffuser gloss black? and the side splitters gloss black or body color with a black bezel?
my car is sparkling graphite metallic
edit: crap I just realized I posted in the photo section.

my bumper at the auto body today. about to take off the side splitters .any more opinions?
I'll probably paint it gloss black but if some people think it'll look good body color(sparkling graphite) with a black plastic bezel around it I might go for that.
thanks guys
