Depends on what type of styling you plan on doing with your car. For our v710's, Matte Black - very sporty, track inspired, aggressive. Hyper Silver - classy and OEM+ looking, doesn't catch too much attention.

I'd say matte black would looks best with your theme. Shoot Alan************.com an email, he takes good care of us e90post members!

I went from hyper silver v710s to gunmetal v710s. Met in the middle and I love the look. I would certainly go matte black over the silver personally. Might need your calipers painted for a little contrast to complete the look if it turns out too black.

Thanks for the advice guys! I went with 19' matte black! I also ordered h&r sport springs!

What are your guys thoughts on spacers? Do you guys think it would make it look better if i decided to get some? Or will it not make too much of a difference?
