Which color rims? (Sparkling Graphite e90)

So I'm the new owner of a sparkling graphite 330xi and I'm starting to do some visual modifications to it, but I feel like I can't really do too many exterior mods without replacing the rims first.

So I already picked out the rims I want... I know they're cheap, but they look like BMW rims and I can't afford $1k rims. I'm looking into Elbrus I08 rims. They're essentially e46 m3 replica rims. I would be getting 17" since I already spent money on all season RFT for my stock rims.

Anyway, I need help deciding on 1) Anthracite Painted or 2) Anthracite Mach w/Ice Coating.

I feel like #1 will be better for blacking/smoking things like my grille, window trim, and tails. But #2 looks a lot more OEM.

My car:

#1 Anthracite Painted:

#2 Anthracite Mach w/Ice Coating:

*That was the closest color to my car tirerack had.
