M sport rear diffuser

I am planning on spraying my diffuser to the lci color. Could anyone help with the color as I don't have a clue looking for a gloss finish any advice would be appreciated.

I had mine sprayed by the BMW dealer about 3 years ago. Very pleased with it and no problems.

The lci diffuser is about 40. Cheaper to buy one rather thn paint a pre isn't it? Assuming you want it glossy grey rather than the colour of the car?

To be honest with you guys I was thinking of color coding it but can't seem to find any pics but it looks really nice on Jules coupe but don't know how it would look on the e90 but I don't mind the gloss finish in graphite car is in body shop and he offered to do the complete fitting and respray at a very good price a very good friend of mine so he would not charge me for any extras.

Vas, LCI is glossy and darker with an extra lip. Pre lci is light grey matte and only has a gentle ridge.

Why colour code it, it will look like an SE?

The LCi is much nice, gives the back a nice shape over the Pre LCi one. 67 from the dealer and you can fit it in 20mins, just unbolts and swaps over.
