Rear Diffuser Color - Help

Rear ended the other day. Car is Grigio Silverstone 740. Diffuser needs to be replaced but having difficulty verifying if it's considered grey or black. It looks black to me. Parts diagram shows grey as standard and black as optional. Can anyone help?

Ferrari says if it's black they won't have one until sometime next year.

As coincidence would have it, I have one here in the shop today.
The valence is indeed a very dark gray, almost black. Candidly, I think every one I've seen is this shade (which appears to be the natural color) of the material.

Hope this helps///

My Silverstone has black. I thought the grey was usually fitted to Nero cars?

Mine is more grey in color. If i was not on a new PC, it seems our website now has easier method to add photos? I know keeping things OEM is high priority but any thoughts on getting a carbon fiber version? Ive been thinking about picking a CF version one for xmas to give to my beloved F430.

Just to update, the new diffuser arrived and it's definitely grey not black. After the bumper is painted I'll put the diffuser against it and decide if I like the color. If not, I'll have it painted black.
