I have a little bit of a dilemma. Getting ready to install dual exhaust this spring and am wondering if I should color match the inserts to the bumper or not. Car is dark otter gray, my tail lights are almost black, lower part of the bumper is your (not sure of color code) lighter gray. When I hold them next to the bumper I kinda like the contrast and how it matches tail lights and upper paint of the car. On the other hand it had a classy look on my old Regal with inserts painted. Curious what you guys think or maybe somebody has pictures with unpainted fascias on the car?
Color match exhaust inserts-or not

Mine are painted, but it is not the exact correct color. Heat from the exhaust has wrinkled the paint above the tips, but it doesn't show unless you get down there and look up. From behind you can't see the wrinkle, just the ever so slight color mismatch. Maybe install them un-painted. If you don't like it, paint them later.

FWIW: Early cars are Marblehead Metalic, later cars are Storm Gray!

I had a paint shop match mine, they are doing well after years of use no damage signs yet.
