Just sold my old car...

...and the money is burning a hole in my pocket...

I have a Space Gray E92 w/ Fox Red and tint. I think I'm opting for clear reflectors. My only question is the grills (I plan on buying the matte black ones) and wanted to get people's opinions. Yes, I know it is a matter of personal preference, however I'm asking anyways:

A. Paint the side gill and the outer part of the kidney grills gloss black to match the shadowline trim (leaving the slats of the kidneys matte)

or

B. Paint the side gill gloss black and the outer part of the kidneys Space Gray (leaving the slats on the kidneys matte)

I ordered my kidneys from IND painted space with flat black slats. They are going to look awesome on the car. Waiting for spring.

Depends on how you are going to proceed with your future mods imo. But both choices are nice. For space grey, I'd go with B
