I say paint before the install. The install is very easy. You can bolt and unbolt yourself. But it's best to have a buddy help remove and then reinstall on the bumper. Just so it lines up right the first time. I removed mine to color match the center splitter of my CS bumper.
I'd definitely give the newtakeoff consideration, especially if you are contemplating staying with the stock look. Of course they can't guarantee a perfect match as they are already painted....but I imagine it being the same.

As for NewTakeOffs, I just got my GT bumper a week ago for my GT/CS conversion.
The bumper itself has many fine scratches, swirl marks, and imperfections that could not be removed with the products I had (Meguiar scratch remover, swirl-x, clay bar). There were some spots covered with grime that left a stain even after I cleaned it. It appears as if they just threw the bumper into a warehouse and let it sit gathering all kinds of crap.
