Let me just start by saying, I'm not a huge fan of unpainted carbon fiber hoods. A little carbon fiber doesn't bother me if it's tastefully done. I have a Seibon carbon fiber front lip that looks just like the WW / RMM one. I was contemplating whether or not to paint it. My car is red and I also have the RMM wing with carbon fiber mid-section also so I thought it would compliment that. I also thought about painting the lip but leaving around the holes unpainted.

Let me know what you guys/girls think.

Ehh...on red it's debateable. Sometimes it looks good, sometimes it doesn't. I voted to paint it.

EDIT: I also think you should modify it if you don't paint it (cut off the parts that stick up).

The lip from the factory was black leave it black. I've never been a fan of the painted lips ,especially when the car doesn't have side skirts or lip. Leave it black and re-inforce it so that it doesn't crack and all will be well.
