I find satin a bit of an inbetween colour.. like is it a shiny matte, or a dirty gloss... neither here nor there.

Don't wanna go full matte or full gloss?

gloss offers no contrast, matte was done on my old car and is becoming a bit passe... open to other suggestions if there are some pics to back them up..

kind of unsure atm...

I've seen gloss on a black e93 m3, looked sweet!

I quite like Satin finish, I would say go for it!

Have you looked into "Storm Grey" that would like nice on your m3 IMO.
