I'm going to be the desenting vote and say that while I love to Bojix, when painted completely body colored, it blends into the car too much and just looks like a big fat lip.

2012 SEL Hatch w 3d Carbon spoiler and Bojix splitter

Some after shots of my 2012 SEL with the 3d Carbon Rear spoiler, factory mudflaps, and Bojix front splitter.
Rear Quarter view


Front views


I have considered putting a bright lime green stripe on the very leading edge lip of the front splitter, would that make it look better?
Just kidding.... but how about a black contrast on that lowest lip?

I'll tell you this, my wife LOVE"S it just like it is, showed it off all over town today....

You need to paint the black plastic under your doors and around the rear bumper and it'll look pretty killer.

Is that black on top of the spoiler? Can you take a pic of that?

I also agree with Sonic. Put some more color on the splitter. That little lip would look good with something that stands out from the rest.

Edit: NM found the pic of the top. I was planning on doing the same to mine. Glad to see it looks so good!

I think the Bojix lip definitely needs the lowest portion painted black. I do like what you did with the spoiler though, very nice touch.

I agree with 20th gen Bill here. Of course, I do love those monochromatic Mercs from the 80's...

Joey and Wantz,
I've considered all that, actually just thought I'd drive it through the MN winter like it is now, and then see if it needs a spring touch up.
I'm also considering blacking out the rear plate shield with or without the ford emblem.

(Actually, cheapest, easiest, BEST mod I have done is paint that silver metal lunchbox muffler black...)

I think that would look like crap on your color of car. Be serious now man...

Sonic, just kidding, but I AM thinking about dipping that lowest front edge in black
Here's the Before and After together with all solid color.
