Question Paint or Not to Paint. .?? CGM - GND FX

Just picked up the Gnd FX package for my ride and I am not sure if I should paint these or not.

If any color but CGM I would say no, but I am worried that the color will not be different enough to set them off nor is is close enough to the CGM color.

Don't want people to think that I got them painted and couldn't match the color.

Does anyone have a picture of the FX on a CGM NOT PAINTED??

paint em. to me it looks totally unfinished if they're not. reminds me of the honda preludes around town. I don't really understand why they're not factory color matched to begin with.

I saw a white Camaro at the car show this weekend and he had his painted gloss black. It looked nice.

i can only give you my opinion.
if i were to put them on my car,i would definitely paint them.when they are not painted,they look like a bolt on item.when they are painted,they look like part of the car.

the ones in the image are painted, or I lost my color eye. They look best painted to match on your CGM color. To do a proper job you will have to take them off and that is a pain as you have to re-tape them with 3M bonding tape. If you can do t yourself a body shop can paint them, but understand they may not match 100% as the plastic parts take the color a tad different then the metal panels. They should be very close to your bumpers. In the SF Bay Area thats about a $1200-1500 job if you want quality. FYI. & good luck.
