You can 'scrape' off the gray. Underneath it is the same color as the car. There are also threads regarding that on bf.c.

Just go to an autobody paint place and they should colour match it just fine. They can even give it to you in a spraypaint can to make it easier. Here in Canada it costs about $20.
