TME was black. I saw them when they were new and also the 6, all were black.
Get it stripped and ceramic coated in black, they will last longer that way. Paint tends to burn off where the ceramic is very tough. I'v had the exhaust manifold, heat shield, louvre's all ceramic coated in black. The under bonnet temp is definitely better contained. I don't get the big heat haze coming out out of the vents now.
