Will sparkling graphite "work" with CF add-ons?

I really like the way lighter colors showcase how built the E92 looks. For this reason I have officially decided to get either sparkling graphite or space gray.

I also think that the E92 looks better proportioned with the addition of a CF front lip and boot lid. I especially like the CF stripe on the Vorsteiner CSL style boot lids once it has been painted.

That CF coloring looks pretty dead-on close to the color of sparkling graphite, however, and there would be almost no contrast. I am wondering if I would be better off just painting the entire boot lid and leaving no CF areas exposed. This would save me $500 as well because then I would not have to pay for the CF outer layering on the boot lid.

Getting a space gray car could fix the problem entirely, but I REALLY like s. graphite on the E92 body. Has anyone had any experience in this area? Is there anyone with CF additions to their s. graphite or s. gray cars that they can post? Specifically, a CSL style boot lid with the exposed CF strip running across the back and the front CF splitters?

Thanks for any help in advance.
