Not a fan. It looks hokey to me, not at all like the other models. The black plastic is textured, which would look bad. The paint may not adhere well and would chip/peel easily.

And in the end, what would red paint accomplish? The black fascia is designed to 'slim' the mass of the front, and to look more sporty (which it does effectively). Painting part of the fascia would look like the car belonged to someone's teenage son, IMO.

Yep that looks good thank you. I agree that painting the plastic might be problematic, it might need a vinyl wrap or plasti dip.
