    Vehicle : Vectra C 3.2 Gsi Auto (Zavoli LPG with Flashlube)

    Default Front Splitter - Needs Repainting / Finishing on a lowered suspension chassis - Black. or Silver ?

    Hi Guys,
    Am driving a recently purchased / modified Vec 3.2 Gsi. It has an Irmscher kit finish and Bilstein Lowered Suspension (excuse spelling).
    The front splitter seems to be so much closer to the road as a result of the lowering that I need to deal with repainting to tidy it up from hump/bump/pothole scrapes. So, do I do it cheaply with a hand brushed black rubberised paint, or, do I get it professionally re-sprayed... ? All the time knwing that this task will be likely to need repeating for as long as it has lowered susension.
    A couple of photos of the car have been "Photoshopped" by my son to give an idea of what's in my head. What do you think guys ? Black or Silver paint job ?

    Cheers

    Woody

    Incidentally guys, the snowflakes are a new addition and replace a set of 24 spoked wheels that didn't show much of the calipers. With the snowflakes almost the whole disc setup is exposed, so what colour do you think these would be best painted up in to improve an otherwise "rusty" finish ? Red ? Black ? Yellow ? Silver even ?

    Splitter looks better color coded. I painted my calipers black but if you want them to stand out I would go for blue.

    The black looks pretty cool could you not get it carbon dipped as finish is amazing and would look more touring car style

    I think the colour matched splitter looks better out of the 2 but the above carbon dipped idea would be really different and nice
