The first picture looks really nice. The V710 wheels are highly anticipated right now. They are incredible looking wheels, so I'm not surprised. Looks great on an AW

I would say Brushed Silver as well... Looks amazing. If you're looking for the V710's than that is a good choice. If you want to be placed on a pre-order status please give me a PM! Here's a link to where you can price quote your wheel and tire package, as well as we can just sell the wheels for you!

19" V710 HyperSilver Wheel/Tire Package - e46 3-series (Staggered)
http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...oducts_id=1890

Let me know if you have any questions about the wheels, or feel free to call or PM me

I would go with the brushed as well... I think it flows great on an AW car for a nice clean look.

Yeah, Brushed is the way to go, the charcoal color is crap on an AW E92.
