Bumper - what would you do????

Body shop is ordering parts to complete repairs to my car and just called asking if the lower part of my back bumper (sorry not sure if there's a name for this) is the black/grey or same color as my car....its black/grey, but wondering if putting the IOM on it would be worth it? The original quote had it the same color as the car....

I looked a pic from the cruise last month and it seems all are the black/grey.

What would you do?

The read diffuser? Def keep it a different colour. If it was matched to body it would look off. Well I personally don't like it

I'm with TJ91. I like the contrast in colours. If it's painted the same colour, everything just seems to blend in. But some like it. It'a all individual taste.

For the most part, whatever people do to these cars looks sexy. And I said for the most part. 32" wheels? Not for me. LOL LOL
