thinking of painting my m5 diffuser a bit differently

I was thinking of painting my m5 diffuser a bit differently and can't seem to find a pic to see if it would look good or not. i have a aw 550 and was thinking of painting the main part of the diffuser gloss black and the insert piece AW. how do you guys think that would look?

Personally i've seen this done from someone with a 335 and it did not look too good.

I would vote gloss black diffuser but get the middle section wrapped in matte CF. Adds a nice contrast but without being too in your face like the white would.

i was thinking that but the pics i seem with the gloss black seems to hide the lines of the diffuser. I just dropped off the piece to get it painted AW and gloss black in the insert. I was thinking about wrapping the whole thing in CF vinyl or something but worried it might peel with the heat. gets put on tues with my exhaust so pics will follow!

Let me know if any fabrication is needed when added the m5 diffuser. Considering is in adding the same diffuser on my 535 AW Msport. Thx
