Montego blue with CF hood?

Hey guys,

I just got an M3 rep CF hood for my MB pre LCI E92 coupe. What are your thoughts on keeping the CF look or painting it MB to match? I searched for awhile and can't find much info. The car is in the shop and just got the hood so need to decide, but I'm leaning more towards painting it MB to match & possibly leaving the vents CF.

I was about to say, I would paint it and leave the vents exposed CF. Definitely post pics when you are finished! Montego Blue FTW!

It looks weird with a stock bumper. A M-Sport or M3 rep would make it fit better and some side skirts.
