Hi, just got my Artisan Spirits black label spoiler, which comes unpainted white. Should I paint it semi-matte black to match the factory aero bits or strat blue to match body? Thank you in advance for replies.

I see people that install black and CF-colored parts and it looks unfinished, IMO. This car looks like it was a salvage rebuild and still needs paint. 😂

I agree with this 100%. IMO, the hood's shape is not conducive to flowing body lines when replaced with a black CF version on any paint code... except black. Same thing with the fake side air intake doodads. The only exception to this I feel is a spoiler/wing/etc.

However, you do you people! That's just my opinion.

To me, the fenders are almost worse because it's got that weird square section.

THIS is terrible.
