I like the look of that, but I guess I'm more leaning toward something a bit racier-looking, or something with less of a lip in the rear, and not so much silver (imo it makes the car itself stand out a little less, you know?).

Still up in the air though

Funny thing is, I was Hell bent against getting anything other than Montego Blue or Crimson Red...until I test drove a Tasman and thought, "not many of these out there." As for your car, I'm not a huge fan of anything "matte." Maybe I'm not as cool as I thought I was. I really think that Hypersilver would look NICE! either way you go, keep me posted.

OEM BMW Performance wheels? I was thinking about them, but really wanted to have some aftermarket wheels. A few of my buddies have those 313's on their 335's, and I want mine to look cooler

Montego was my very first choice, fell in love with it the first time I saw it. And I'm not much of a Matte fan either, it may make my gray look even more dull lol. Yeah, its really looking like hypersilver is the way to go. Still need to check out that SGM thread remmib suggested too, maybe I'll get some more ideas/looks.

Thinking about it too, seen a few on here that looked real good with black, contrary to what I had thought initially. But for now hypersilver>black.

Hyper black here and wouldn't change it. All the trim needs to be black for it to flow though. Had silver wheels before these and the car is much more aggressive now just my 2cents



A shot when the paint is on the purple side ..

That actually looks really nice When you say trim, do you mean interior?

Yeah, silver is not one of my primary options. Either hypersilver or some sort of black. I thought hyperblack was a bit darker than what you have on your E92?

Oh.. yes I am getting the trim done by BMW. Can't seem to find anyone that carries the actual molding itself, so it looks like I'll have to pay the stealership price And I decided on some matte black grilles, but you know, one thing at a time

go with silver, all the colors out there are hard to go with SGM well. i got the hyper silver from miro because they use a black base coast and then do a silver over lay so its darker than what VMR uses. VMR's silver is seriously as silver as you can get it.

im going to get mine powder coated here in a couple months and im going to stick with silver again but im going to just go for a darker silver where it look silver but when you look at it at different angles it looks dark almost gun metal.

here is a picture of what it looks like

I have an e92, i had the m6 silver for about two years had so many compliment on them n it looks great its got a machined faced so when its clean it looks very shiney to me, now i just picked up some miro type 935/111 in matte black it took a little while to get use to it because i had silver for a long time. But i think either colour looks great to me, but the style of rims do makes a difference on color u have to choose

I like the way that looks a lot, reminds me of Hedges setup, darker silver/lighter black wheels work very well, I am noticing. I am really leaning toward the gunmetal, different shades-from-different-angles look, as well

I noticed this on the SGM thread, and really liked it when I first saw it. Still do, actually Looks awesome, love the bumper, as well. I guess I would consider LM's if I didn't see so many and if my car weren't so gray

I think they look great on an E92, E90 not so much, especially since the M6 is a coupe to begin with. Thanks so much for all the input guys, this is really helping me come along.

So far, hypersilver/black Advan RZ/RS or VMR's.
