I have a GG rear bumper and it's a darker charcoal grey not black. I don't know the paint code/name though :/

the bottom section is all the same color regardless of what base color your Evo is. On GG Evos it is less obvious due to the similarities in color. You can always have it painted a darker color so it "stands outs" more if you have a GG car. I had my painted phantom black on my GG 9 MR back when I bought it since my rear bumper came unpainted after Mitsu stopped selling them painted.

I just had mine done on my current Evo 9 RS and it is the color code below.

It's definitely that on WW and AS Evo's. I had my diffuser painted A39 after being hit in my garage, but it was not right. You could easily see it wasn't dark enough and the tint of it didn't match with the AS or look the same when compared to older photos of my car. Perhaps on TB, RR, GG, and BBY/EB Evos they used A39.

Isn't it the same darker grey color as the spoiler uprights on the GG Evo 8 MR?

Since you already got a correct answer, here's mine: Plastidip black

Works so well, it makes sense for a bottom facing part to be matte instead of glossy. Been 3 years since I applied it and it still looks perfect. On a black car it's especially appropriate because it gives it contrast.
