Where did you purchase the paint matched parts or did you order them in matte and have them painted ?

Custom exhaust made by a local shop to my specs.

The parts all came matte black and I had a local shop paint the bits I wanted body-coloured.

If you dont mind me asking from where did you purchase them? The fit seems real nice on your pieces and i've been searching for a supplier but most of them are knock off carbon fiber, i really wanna go for the matte and paint combo like yourself.

I got mine from a local(ish) online store in Aus called Mars Performance.

I'm honestly not sure how much of their stuff is theirs or just bought from China but I took a gamble in them and all the bits were perfect fitment and good quality.

carbon fiber always looks weird in random touches, especially on black. i tend to go for matte lower trim and gloss upper trim, but the color matched front lip really does look good. it just makes more sense for the parts that will get the biggest beating (i.e. closest to the ground) can go unpainted.

I was about to ask the same question as op and came across this thread so thought no point starting another. I have a sapphire black gran coupe and want to add performance parts, diffuser, splitter, spoiler and side blades. Also black grilles.

Can't decide whether to leave them matt or paint them. Or even buy the carbon fibre version. Does anyone else have any more photos?
