Default Chrome Between Tail Lights On 08 WRX

So I'm deciding what I'm going to do about the chrome strip on the back of my car. I'm going to have my tail lights tinited soon so keep that in mind. I have a few ideas, I could paint it WRB to match the car, I could paint it black, or i could go with a hyper black, like some rims are. What have any of you 08 owners done? I know I'm not the only one who doesnt like it. If youve done anything post a pic so i can see what it looks like. Otherwise, let me know what you think i should do or what you plan on doing.

Here's the back end of my car-

with tint-




before tint-

i cant stand the chrome. On the tail lights or between them. I believe chrome is for v-8s, not tuners.

I ordered an unpainted STI rear trim and painted it to match my DGM hatch. Flawless.

You can paint the stock ones. I've done at least 4-5 so far.

yea i was thinking about color matching it, you can buy prepainted ones directly from subaru, but i think it might look tight if i did it black to match the tinted tail lights. if anyones good at photoshop could you give it a go for me? im gonna post in the photoshop thread as well.
