So I'm due to take delivery of my Dravit grey m340 in the next couple of weeks. I added the black front splitter, cf rear diff, and cf rear spoiler to my build. I know that I'm goin to change the front bumper vent trim pieces to gloss black but I can't decide whether to order a regular gloss black grill with slats or get a spare cerium grill and paint it gloss black. Also, to eliminate all of the cerium, I'm planning on getting cf mirror covers as well. I know this is totally personal preference, but just curious as to whether there is a general consensus of which grill looks better. All comments are welcome. Thanks.

How did you add cf rear spoiler to your order I did not see them when I was building online? Your dealer added them for you?

At my dealer, their body shop would not agree to paint any of the cerium gray trim. They said it wouldn't come out very good and the paint wouldn't be very durable. They said it would be equivalent to painting over chrome, which they also won't do. In the end, I had all of the cerium gray trim replaced.

You must not be in the US, cuz that would've been an easy cop. If that grill becomes available to to buy, I'm gettin it for sure. Looks good
