Depending on what other colors you have going on I think gunmetal would look pretty sweet.

so i thought about what color i should do and since i'm going to have my mirror caps color matched i was thinking maybe i should color match the valve cover and the CAI i think it would look pretty neat and clean. the color would be Estate Green Metallic (Profile pic) anyone know where i can get enough paint to do this for my mirror caps, and valve cover, CAI for a decent price? I have a buddy who has a paint booth might have him do it, so where can i get the paint at a cheap price? Thanks!

Yeah color matched would be sweet too.
Sorry not sure exactly where you can get the paint. See if theres a local paint store that can match your color.

Moved ya to Interior Mods & Upgrades Chat.
I'd go with color matched.

As far as color...do whatever you want. Its your car. For time I did mine and it took 2 days. Thats cleaning it, priming, painting, clearing, and then letting it cure. Here is how mine turned out (all rattle can):
