Go with a grey. The color I'm using for mine is "Toyota Dark Grey" so it actually matches my center console and stuff.

That pic is actually before much more sanding and clearcoat. It looks much better now. I picked up a few cans of auto paint at Canadian Tire (don't try looking for that in the US) and it's not even formulated for plastic but it works fine. They had a whole shelf of color matching paint for every color specific to each manufactuer.
