Mineral Gray 335i MSport - M Perfomance aero kit to paint or not?

Need opinions, I received the M performance front lip, rear diffusor, side sills, black kidneys and carbon fiber spoiler which looks awesome by the way.

Would you guys install the lip, diffusor and side sills in the original matte black color on a mineral gray car or paint them same color?

I'd paint the bottom part gloss black and the upper part mineral grey. That's what I'm planning to do. You have gloss black grills, so complete the look.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Maybe paint the side sills gloss black too?

I was thinking about going ahead with this mod. Planned on painting the side blades and bottom lip of front spoiler body color, leaving the air intake inlet attachments black, and placing the ///M Performance vinyl stickers on the side sills. However, couldn't handle the nearly $2k price for what is, effectively, painted ABS plastic glued onto my car. No thanks. Bought H&R Sport springs and an aFe scorcher module instead!
