Hey people,

I just got the BA XR8 lower bumper grill I ordered on line. It's in plain black unpainted plastic, I want it to match my upper grill, which is that factory-standard dark silver/grey metallic.

Does anyone know if there's a paint code for that colour that I can get mixed up?

Or is painting both parts a new colour at the same time the only way to get a decent match...

Any ideas welcome, cheers

I wouldnt bother painting it if it were mine because i would be thinking as below.
1. You can hardly notice the difference between the colours especially a quick look.
2. If you do paint it its gonna get hammered with stone chips and look tatty after a short period.
Just my thought id pass to you.
