Fade it like the picture above. The SGM will actually compliment it quite nicely.

QFT! I can not stand the lip of the trunk left exposed, like it's a CF spoiler or something. It breaks up the lines too much and hides the nice shape the trunk gives.

License plate CF is just too cool. Like a License Plate display area.

So please, paint everything but the plate area

+1 fade it with license plate exposed. Even though I have a space grey it will give me an idea what it looks like
