Technically, the color is flat black. So it should be a pretty close match to the factory color and a shop could still paint it for you. They sell it in liquid form too. As far as high temp coatings go, this would be one of your cheaper options to protect the subframe. Powdercoat would not look like factory as far as I can tell. It's also impossible to fix cheaply if you get a scratch in it. Would require a whole new powdercoating process just reapply the coating to a small area and this is a large object that comes out of the car every few years.
As always, there are pros and cons to every choice you have to make. Powdercoat looks nicer. But, unless you are going for a color you want people to notice, I've always asked why powdercoat it? A plain flat black kinda sounds like a waste of money with a powdercoat.
