I just ordered the F sport grille for my 2006 Lexus IS350 Smokey Granite.
I saw in a thread, that I can no longer find, that a lot of people were painting their grilles a gun metal sort of grey before installation.
I am curious what your opinions are on what I should do when the grille comes.
Lexus emblem or no emblem
Paint mesh gun metal gray or keep as black plastic
Black out chrome trim, attempt to colour match chrome trim with rattle can or plastidip, or leave chrome.
Because my wheels are shiney and I still have all the chrome trim, I am leaning towards a badgeless grille with chrome surround and possibly painting the mesh gun metal gray. What do you guys think?

Here's a few quick photoshop pics.
