Count the number of bolt holes. From memory non-PI is 10, PI is 11 (stand to be corrected).

on a shade of gray/silver car like yours you're limited on colors, you could do body color but it might be hard to really see and take advantage of, or another color that looks good on that color type car would be wrinkle blue. whenever I see silver cobras with aluminators that have the wrinkle blue vc's they look great.

Dsg would be cool but it only pops in the direct sunlight so it would just look like a dull grey unless you take the hood off. I was thinking ford blue or a metalic blue.

its the little things that i think looks the best. blue/red valve covers are a dime a dozen IMO. same goes for the brake calipers :yes

Nothing will match thats the problem. I could paint my intercooler pipe to match my valve covers but idk. I might go with a super jet black with a nice clear coat just to clean up my engine bay a little.
