Sort of up to you I'd go with flat black or black pearl... black pearl is more elegant and flat is more sporty...I think

I’m planning to paint my Emblems, and I would like to know wat color do u guys think I should paint it? Gun Metal, Flat Black, or try to make it look like Black Pearl? Btw, my car is MSM. thx
if you go with black pearl, I say you just save up and buy the real emblems. I don't think you could ever get it the same as real black pearl unless you paint cars for a living or something.

if you have enough money for a xbox and 2 tv's in your car, you definately have enough money for real emblems.

just a thought. ;)

If you do decide to go black pearl, I can tell you from experience to get the genuine ones. I bought some on the cheap from a guy in Hong Kong, and they turned out to be very crappy. Tarnished and pealed from day one... not to mention the "Lexus" badge was too big.

I decided to go with "satin" black on mine, which is also the color I used to paint my heads, fogs, and tails. I think flat would look good on your car, but you would need to tie it in with black tails also to complete the look.

Here is a pic of mine with the black painted emblems...
