M Performance Kit on Black F32

So I've been considering buying an aftermarket M performance kit for the car, however I'm stuck as to which colour to paint it, if at all.

I'm thinking it will need something on it just to keep it protected, especially if it's aftermarket.

I'm not sure whether to keep it matte, gloss or match it to the car. Looking for any suggestions or, even better, photos.

If I could find somewhere to hydro dip them a carbon print up in Scotland, then I would, but it seems to be dieing out up here.

I've had the M performance rear diffuser and matte black spoiler painted to match my car in Estoril Blue. I had the centre part of the diffuser painted in gloss black. Really sets the car off and makes the rear end look a bit more special.

I'm going to be adding the side skirts, but I can't decide on a front lip.

Why don't you buy a carbon kit rather than dipped?

I have mine from Unit17 and I'm sure that they do one for yours too.

I've looked at carbon kits but so far they have all been considerably more expensive than the other options I mentioned.

Ive had things dipped before and loved the results, but the place seems to have closed down.

I tried having a look at Unit 17, but I could only find FB and IG pages and can't see prices. Not sure if it's different if you have an account.

Looks good for the money, however I'm now thinking I might stay away from gloss black on a black car.

Will you go CF? For me, the matt look doesn't suit a black (or dark) car, there's not enough contrast.

Quotes I got to dip were more than the parts cost!
Instagram message unit 17 is your best bet.
love the quality of the parts.
