Default Fog Light Covers...Which One to Choose?

I am deciding between a few different fog light covers / vents for my 2019 STI.

Here are my current choices:

2020 STI Standard Fog Light Covers:
-----------------------------------------
Pros: The bezel is a shiny black like the grill bezel, so they match. Fully vented, not just the corner like the 2019's.
Cons: No STI logo like the S209's inside. No LED option.

2020 STI S209 Fog Light Covers:
-------------------------------------
Pros: Has a nice STI logo molded in the inner plastic guide. Fully vented, not just the corner like the 2019's.
Cons: Not sure this is really a "con", but it has a gun metal chrome finish on the bezel. I'm 50/50 on that because it doesn't match anything else on the exterior. No LED option.

2020 STI JDM Fog Light Covers:
-------------------------------------
Pros: The bezel is a shiny black like the grill bezel, so they match. Has LED option.
Cons: Not fully vented. Requires wiring.

I really like the S209 covers, but that damn chrome bezel is bothering me for some reason.

Any thoughts?

Have you considered painting the S209 bezel a different color?

You might want to consider the price; the S209 covers are $600+ a set. The 2020+ STI ones are less than a quarter of that price:

2020+ STI fog lamp covers -- click me!


2020 STI USDM cover


JDM fog lamp cover with DRL.


S209 cover

I'm not sure the venting makes any difference in terms of car performance. There's no particular place for the air to go behind the bumper.
