Painted Supercharger Engine Cover?

Hey everybody,

Looking at possibly painting the VF750 engine cover on my Imola Red Z4MC. What do you guys think of these options?

///M Paint


Red Paint


Stock


Thanks for the thoughts everybody.

I prefer stock looking personally, but the red is pretty cool

Thanks nesrevival and i2ichal2dZ4M! I like the idea of stock and it looking unnoticeable, but I also like the idea of it painted all glossy and havin it for shows...

Maybe carbon fiber would look good but same color as car is good too. But I think stock still owns.

Thanks everybody. Looks like stock is pretty much locking it down as the winner. I had no idea the ///M paint would be so disliked... kinda surprised actually. But hey, good to know before going to so much trouble.

Stock as VF has done a nice job keeping the kit very stealth (with the ridges, and the black compressor).
It's probably the stealthiest cf charger kit I've seen.

If you do want to liven things up for shows, paint the cast aluminium pipe too (same as g-power did)
