Did you go with flat black or is it a shiny gloss black?

Molding it makes it even better. No gap at all, perfect color match and no seam line in between. Here it is on my IS250.

Was there a specific kind of 3m tape you used?

I'm not sure what he used but for this application, you should get the 3M grey version that is strong enough to hold the bumper from not falling out.

How much does it cost to get these painted? I'm debating one, but would like paint price input before I buy it and it ends up collecting dust in the garage because painting it would cost just as much as buying it. I know prices vary between shops and with city and state, but I'm trying to get a rough estimate..

You will most definitely pay just as much to paint it, more if you have the shop install it (which I would recommend, just to avoid screwing up the paint job when you attempt to mount it yourself).
