Coupe or sedan M-Tech II front on sedan?

I am planning on buying an m tech II front bumper from umnitza, as I have heard good things about their bumper quality. My question is, should I get the coupe front without the black molding strip, or the regular sedan front with the molding strip. Keep in mind I do plan on having the other black moldings painted to match the car. Not sure if a coupe bumper would look better or worse than a sedan bumper. FYI I am not getting an m tech II rear, just the front

^I agree. Just paint the black trim the same as your car. This way you wouldn't have that many fitment issues with the coupe bumper

Yeah I forgot to mention if I did get the sedan bumper the trim would be painted. I'm thinking a coupe bumper with no trim wouldn't flow with the rest of the sedan, even if the trim is painted
