I think it looks better because it blends in with the rest of the vehicle. Initially I thought about getting the black and silver piece from the base camp style. Basecamp Front Valance Part Number: 3CN071608DSP (around $550 to $650 w/o installation). But it was cheaper to color-match ($300 parts & labor).Have same color in a SE/tech ... I like both pictures. I don’t mind the silver as it draws contrast, but I also can see the appeal of adding the body color to the bumper.
