Please give me your opinions. I am going with the Stillen Front Lip and Side Skirts. I have a 10' Super Silver. I am considering three options. 1. Paint them the OEM trim color 2. Not painting them at all. 3. Painting them and the rear Super Silver. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I installed front lip on Red 09 where lower treatment is carbon grey and didn't paint it and it looked good. Front lip you can barely tell is there from the front. Not sure about look of sides, but I would compare color as is. The rubber is very flexible and would need careful painting and appropriate paint approach to not crack. At least on front it will show scrapes if silver whereas natural color hides scratches.

Thanks for the input. I installed the Stillen lip on a Maxima and was impressed at how it looked good right out of the box. I think because the 2010 stock wheels are dark the Stillen side skirt might look good unpainted. I know the finish on the Stillen pieces is dull but I was thinking of doing a wrap in flat silver eventually. Need to find a good wrap company in Maryland.
