M5 base vs Competition Rear end look?

I just picked up a White M550i and I'll be doing a M5 comp exhaust soon and will be doing the oem m5 diffuser as well. Wondering what look everyone likes better. The original m5 look with body color painted diffuser or the m5 competition with the all black diffuser?

for some reason I'm liking the body colored in that it looks more M5ish. The competition black looks more like the m550 I've already got.

I like the body coloured one much more. Man, I wish the g30 bumper came with body colour instead of the grey..

Heck, that's a simple deal. Two screws on each underside end, pull it off and have your body shop paint it. I did mine in gloss black because, like you I hated the gray.

Looks great either way, but I prefer the black.

Grey seems an unusual colour for BMW to have chosen. Especially with cars equipped with the Shadowline trim.
