At a bit of a dilema here. Opinions needed!!

Hi guys, i recently found this on ecs tuning. Not sure if you guys can see the sides of it but its carbon fiber. My e92 is alpine white and i was thinking that if i were to paint it and keep the carbon fiber sides, showing of course, that it would look pretty aggresive and different in relations to most non m-sport bumpers with the areo lip.

All opinions welcome!! Thanks!!

I think it would look good. You can get away with it on a white car.

depends on how the shop exposes the CF. is like a fade? or just a straight cut off?

I was thinking straight cut off because that just easier for me to visualize. What do you think if you dont mind me asking?
