Trying to decide on finish for front splitter on an Ashen Gray... (With Poll!)

So as you may have noticed, I'm trying to nail down the finer details as far as specifics are concerned with upgrades I want to perform on my car. I've settled on a lot of things, such as Pfadt drop springs, ZL1 rockers and splash guards, TSW Nurburgring wheels, etc...

I'm currently torn between the RPI, SLP or T4 splitters, but I'm leaning towards the RPI ZL1-inspired splitter... where my concern comes in is the finish... I'm in the precarious situation on an Ashen gray where there isn't exactly a lot of contrast no matter what finish I go with; a matte black wouldn't look bad (I love that look on the 1LE), but I also kind of like the idea of the carbon fiber look, or should I go with body color? My ZL1 rockers will be completely painted, instead of just the tops, so part of me says body color, part of me likes the matte black, and some of me likes the carbon fiber...

What say you? If you have an ashen gray and can share some insight, I'd greatly appreciate it...

I've seen two AGM cars in person with a matte black front splitter and ZL1 side rockers. Looks really good. I voted for matte black but I also think carbon fiber would look good. Heck, AGM would look good, too. You can't go wrong!

Here are the acs splitters in carbon wrap, matte black and carbon flash, it is close to gray so i hope it works for you

the acs splitters are deff a better product, ive put mine through hell (mine is the silver camaro) and it stood up to everything plus its a no drop splitter and you dont loose and ground clearance with it

I'm voting for Carbon Fiber. Looks really good in person. If I didn't already have a splitter I would have that on my car.

This is actually a really good point... I think I may likely go with the matte black.

Good insight

Thanks, man... I appreciate that... I think the only thing I prefer about the RPI one is that it sticks out a little further, it's just a tick more aggressive looking... but durability is a factor, for sure... along with not losing clearance as I plan to do the Pfadt drop springs.
