But I'm thinking the new dark group would give some performance advantage and will look good against the pinkish frame. What say you?

Sounds almost all good to me. I would be inclined to see if the crank you have will work with the new group. Maybe not likely, but I can't stand the new 4 arm mongoloids yet and don't plan too.

Maybe it's just me, love this bike.
