    SO I have a white 2007 NBS I coaught a rock in the Bowtie the first week I had it and it has been bothering me since 2007.. I was thinking of painting it (I'm cheap) if it was yours would you paint it Satin Black or Glossy Black? Would you paint it another color? Help me decide.

    I had vinyl put over my bow ties. I had the local shop put it on and it was only about $30 for both front and back bow ties. It looks great and i can just peel it off if i ever want to change it.

    Gloss Black. I think the bugs come off easier from gloss than satin. Just a thought.
