Why not paint it yourself? Many others have done it. [:I]

Haven't done it myself - lotsa folks have painted modesty covers and used body paint from dealer. Another common practice is to use a paint pen and hit the ridges on the intake.
BTW look at bottom picture:

Exactly! i want a blue intake. except the blue for 2k3 is darker.

Also, did they use the modesty cover for the 2k3 at all? i have seen mixed opinions.

Just plain enamel paint will work. The modesty cover and the upper manifold don't get hot enough to hurt anything.
