Mein Auto: 2014 535i M-Sport
535i M Performance Rear Diffuser

I have a 2014 AW 535i M-Sport. Recently installed the OEM glass black grills to replace the chrome kidney grills. Yesterday, I ordered the M-performance rear diffuser. Question is, for those that have purchased this accessory, did you paint it or install is as is? I understand it comes flat black. Was thinking about having it painted in a gloss black to match the grills and the shadowline trim of the car.

Any thoughts? Does anyone have pics of their car with this diffuser installed?

What did you end up going with? I suspect (painted gloss black might have been a good choice)?

I ended up going with the gloss black painted rear diffuser. Here's a couple of pics.
