Default To Paint or Not to Paint, that is the question

Im trying to decide whether or not to paint the front lip on my car when it goes to the shop to be repainted this February. I am going to keep it the same factory color and have the shop re-clear the hood, but I am on the fence whether I am going to have the lip painted or not. What are your thoughts?

I’d paint the bumper along with the lip, just for the freshness of it

It sort of depends on the car and the kit, but I generally feel that a lip separate from the bumper should be black, not body colored. They tend to look a bit odd otherwise, like adding fender flares to a truck and color matching them.

Good looking SC. Taking into consideration your wheels and CF hood - my vote for your car would be to leave the lip unpainted.

Unpainted (leave it black) is my opinion.... If you had replaced the front bumper cover with a style not needing a "lip" then there is no point.....

Either way you decide we look forward to the new pics.....
