Color matched rear valance

I thought I'd kill some time while waiting for the feast to begin. I've always wondered what a color matched valance would look like. (Sorry crappy p-chop), not sure if this looks better than stock or not?

Well, I assume you are looking for some honest opinions about this; mine is, it kind of reminded me that notorious Singapour 1M! At least this might be the path leading there. I always thought that if I would buy 1M AW it would be because it is the color which shows the contrast more, but if you like that..
