Should i paint this Grill??

Is it s'posed to be black? Should i glossy clear over the grey plastic?

it was new a couple of years ago but it's starting to show a little age. Just want to keep it fresh and maybe make a change but i'm not sure i'm ready to commit to the black out.

Whata y'all think?

When new they look nice but I prefer the black look so I hit my grill with a can of Krylon paint for plastics.
