Yeah... I think it's "too much" painted. I considered the same thing for all of the 2.5 minutes it took for me to photoshop mine gray. The front bumper is already busy as hell... no need to make it busier!

The black offsets the blue and compliments the tires, the grille, etc...

I painted mine Satin Black, cause in the AZ sun it turned grey, and not a good grey. Thinking about repainting it flat black.

I agree with the others, you need it contrasting the bumper/grill area, not painted the same.
