Painted "Black Bubble" front bumper of a 2016 or older Tesla Model S

Has anyone ever Painted the "Black Bubble" front end bumper of a 2016 or older Tesla Model S the same color as the car? I want to do this but don't know where to go in Chicago or if it is something Tesla would support. Will it hurt any of the car's functionality?

I have seen a white 85 (not sure what year) that had its nosecone painted or wrapped white. Was a pretty close match but wasn't close enough to determine if it was painted or wrapped.
If you do it, I would avoid painting or wrapping the little round parking sensors if your car is equipped with those (originally supplied with the Tech Package, and later standard equipment).
