And if it were open enough to show off your intakes, then you should probably be using a rain-shield, all things considered. In that context, it's not so much your intakes that you're showing off, but the intake rain-shield, and maybe the front pipes. Is the rain-shield plastic or aluminum? Can you paint/powdercoat the shield? If it were powdercoated a deep gunmetal with a heavy gloss top-coat, that might look interesting.

I don't personally care for CF trim pieces. If you could paint it body colored, while leaving the mesh black, maybe. And that center support on the bumper skin is body colored because it's all one piece. But there's no reason you couldn't paint it black.

For web-shopping, I'd really have so see this not so close up, in a variety of perspectives.

I know you're wanting to show your intakes, but as far as a nice clean front end it's hard to beat the emblem-free grill. Whenever I see those mesh grills I can't help but thinking of all those Chrysler 300s w/ those bug-catcher grills.

That's nice. Is it a custom job fabricating the center slats on the OEM grille, or is this an aftermarket grille entirely? Either way, it's a shame to see the center piece supporting the upper and lower section of the front bumper.

You do have to remove the lights, best to do it at a time where you won't be driving your car for 24 hrs. Lights are simple to remove, just 3 nuts hold them on. Project is easy, a bit time consuming but on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 the highest difficulty, I'd say this is a 2. If you mess it up you can always use some laquer thinner to remove then give it another shot.
