thought about that too,
it will look cheesy with the matching colors
and that part of the car doesnt need anymore attention to it

paint it a nice black it will give your car a more aggressive look
rather than a soft look with matching grills

yup gloss black
cuz if you decide to match your lower bumper
youre gonna end up needing to match the upper bumper,
then the moulding beside it
then around the car
and then, well you know what i mean

Black is good, blue goes with silver good to. I'd probably go black, blue will stand out more.

Try paint shop pro. I think you can change colors that way and see what you like. Who knows, you might just like purple and gold..........who knows!
