if you get a cf lip, you'll need a cf trunk spoiler and even a diffuser if you can. otherwise, the cf lip by itself will look out of place.

regardless of whichever way you do go though, you need to lower that car ASAP.

I was thinking of going carbon fiber for a rear lip spoiler (the OEM one), but I would need to make all the other glossy black stuff carbon fiber too. So I'm probably just going to get a glossy black rear lip spoiler to compliment the grilles and side mirrors.

I would go stock color. Will look awesome either way though.

I vote color matched. You need to have a more aggressive look (suspension and body) to pull off the carbon fiber, it will look out of place.
