OK, here's a better comparision. Here's a photo of L~R~G's awesome SG E90 with hyperblack CSLs:



Here's an SG E90 with silver CSLs (and it looks to be lowered as well) from Velocity Motoring's website (http://www.velocitymotoring.com/index.htm ):

did you ever consider the gunmetal csl. i know everyone hates when someone is choosing between 2 options and someone throws in an answer that isnt between the two, but the reason im bringing it up is that it's a fairly new option and didnt know if OP saw that choice.

Gunmetal might be a good choice as well. I think I'm leaning towards silver though.

I would say gunmetal over silver for your ride. And like everyone said, silver is a safe choice.

What do folks think when it comes down to a TiAg (Silver or Gunmetal)? Sorry for piggy backing off the main thread but I'm curious to know what looks best in person as well.

TiAg = Titanium silver.

Here is Brandon's ride TiAg with gunmetal. It's not a E90 I know, but you get the idea. Hope he does not mind I borrow his pictures.

I think silver looks better on your color car as it provides more contrast.
