E46 M-Tech 2 rear: Painted diffuser or not?

Hi fellow fanatics,

I'm thinking about getting a rear M-Tech 2 bumper to match my front, and I simply cannot decide whether to leave the diffuser black or have it painted the same color as the bumper and car. It will most likely be accompanied by a quad exhaust setup from Eisenmann.

Painted diffuser:

Black diffuser:

It's worth noting that the diffuser will have that small "hatch" in the middle for the towing hitch (detachable), and I'm thinking it looks a bit dodgy when the diffuser is painted as in the first photo.

What's your take? Would you have it painted or just leave it black?

EDIT: Forgot to say that the black trim will be painted aswell along with the bumper.
