CF Perf. Spoiler on AW - To Paint or Not to Paint

I am debating on going with the OEM Performance Spoiler, but I am stuck between leaving it all CF, or having just the top painted AW and leaving the bottom CF.

I'm worried that if I leave it all CF there will be too much B&W contrast on the car, I'm also doing edition gills + grills and plan on doing a front lip soon. I've yet to see the spoiler in person, so it may not be so bad

BTW: I have a AW E92 M3 w/ CF roof

I felt the same way until I bought it and put it on! It looks great....and goes perfectly with the roof and splitters if u plan to do them. I also have cf mirror caps....

Haha I know what you mean, I think I am only second guessing because I've yet to see it in person. I mean worst case if I get tired of it I can always have it painted

I'm actually planning to do my car just like the one in the MT video, but with a Vorsteiner lip instead of the oem splitters

I have the CRT style Performance Spoiler...I'm very happy with it. AW with AW accent line although mine is a E90, I'll see if I can find some time to throw some pics up.

Since you asked nicely. I like it although I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. Car is a little dirty but you get the idea.

I was the first one to do the half painted/ half CF on a AW car from IND. I really like how it turned out, plus its unique. Here you go:
