So its pretty much like the subject says. I know I need to replace the awful stock grill and I'm thinking of using the sports grill to do it. However rather then doing blue on blue I'm thinking of getting a black grill for the blue car. Better yet I thought it might be cool to have it customer painted a flat black as opposed to stock gloss black.

Any thoughts? Am I a fool for considering this? Or better yet anyone good at photoshop that can put a mockup together?

You might just want to consider the STi grill then. It already comes half flat black, while the top piece is silver. You could always just spray the top piece flat black and consider it done.

but the STi grille style is a different design, more plastic and less mesh + a bigger logo which you cannot change like the sport which is the same logo size than older impreza

What you might want to try is this...

See if you can grab one off of ebay. There are some that are on their that are a flat-black appearance because they are just the raw material. Buy it, and then install it. If you dont like it, paint it blue. If you do like it, seal it with some flat black paint! Either way, it will cost you less than if you bought it from the dealer!

I don't think it'll look good as the black on the sport grill will be glossy. A non-gloss matte finish would look better.

i was thinking of doing something similar but opposite i guess. i was thinking of painting my chrome splitter black and having black tail lights on my WRB hatch. i say +1 for doing something unique. SO many subaru's all look alike so i always try and break the norm. i say GO FOR IT!! maybe tinting your headlights with the black grill would be a nice touch
