Grey

I would either leave the lip grey primer, or paint it black.
A quality paint job never looks cheap.

Finally remembered to post pics of the drop :cool:
Just a 35mm drop...nothing too silly...perfect for the roads round here



It's not the drop that is the best thing...it's the fact that the Beetle finally handles :D



The Koni yellow sports dampers have made such a difference...driving home from getting them fitted was like a completely different car...



Reasonably firm, but not uncomfortably so. Rears have been set at 1 full turn; fronts still have a lot of adjustment left as well, if I want to firm it up even further :D

:D Love the eat rice sticker under the wing! Glad you're enjoying the drop/handling. If you're still tallying opinions, I'd paint the front splitter body color.
