You could also just paint the whole thing black, then wrap the middle area. Wrap is removable, so you can try a few different things. Also, you can try PlastiDip to see if you'd like matte black or grey. Again, if you don't like it, it can be removed fairly easily.

I agree with sm1ke... If you don't like it, always good to know you can remove PlastiDip and wrap...

I still dont think you should wrap. To test it sounds fine but take the necessary steps to do it right when you like it.

I vote no for wrap.. Ever thought about going dark grey / Gun Metal? Always been a fan of black Audi's w/ dark grey rear diffusers.. Similar to the 2IS for the last pic but DARKER..

Example:

^ Paint the wald spoiler black but leaving the carbon fiber exposed on the tip of the spoiler. Similar to this member's ISF wald spoiler.. If you're planning to have real carbon fiber on the rear, definitely stay away from wrapping your rear lip/diffuser because it'll be too obvious on the differences..

Excited to see this when you're done.

thanks for the suggestion! always helpful. hm but i think i'd like to keep the trunk spoiler CF for now, and do as you suggested when it starts fading

if i keep trunk spoiler CF, i think i'll pain the myride diffuser like the audi one (middle gun metal , outside black), and keep it black/grey theme overall

how does this sound?

OK!!

so i installed a wald Carbon Fiber trunk spoiler!

now for my myride diffuser paint, i'm debating between

1. middle section gunmetal/dark gray, outside areas black (kind of like the audi/2is in previous post)
2. entire diffuser gunmetal/dark gray (like this member's car, but mine will be entire gunmetal diffuser on obsidian car

Click the image to open in full size.

painting next week! any last minute input greatly appreciated!!

thanks everyone

I had this exact debate when I was looking to buy the JP Vizage or Wald rear. Everytime I see an IS in any color other than black, they would have the lip painted the color of the car and the inside part between the tips black. It looked really good and I wanted to two-tone mine but in the end, I just went all black and I don't regret it. I think all black would look great on your car.
