Guys, help me out with color for my new wheels

Ordered DPE R16 wheels and have one week to pick the color

Options:

1: Matte black center with matte black polished lip and white pin stripe

2: Gunmetal center with polished lip


Lets see what you guys would pick?

These will be going onto my AW E46 M3....

2 is more subtle, way nicer. Black wheels on a white car is too presidential for me.
