I think Silver on SG looks great. Different shades of grey look well when put together. Don't do gunmetal, it's just too much of same shade grey. That's the reason why I quit on silver rims on my Tiag e90 (more like the rims quit on me - damn potholes).
My new set of wheels is going to be gunmetal.

Looking for the e90 with the m6 setup? Here's mine
Honestly I love how the silver matches with the chrome window trim and the gunmetal paint matches with the car itself. I always get compliments on the wheels.. I think I'm the only one with this setup around here some ppl think it's a "baby m6" lol

Edit: sorry for the dirty wheels/car.. this is the only pic I have so far.

I actually wanted to have the rims/exterior color match, since I'm taking all that chrome trim out and tinting the windows. I want a shadowmobile The brightest thing on it are gonna be the license plate LED's which are already on there and ridiculously luminous. I can actually see their light when I turn my head to the left to change lanes

So that's how it would look? Looks really nice! I do like how the rims have both gunmetal and silver in them. But I'm taking my window trim off and switching to gloss black, so I wanted gunmetal rims.

Dirty cars ftw. Mine looks no better right now LOL.

Really? I actually like them in black with the polished lip a bit more. But I wanted some concavity in my wheels

I went to UMBC for a year, but that was actually taken in the parking garage at my job in Owings Mills. Pretty far from UMD lol.

Speaking of UMD, some buddies of mine had said some shit went down over there with cops beating on students, or something? What's that about?

Wow, I did hear about that. Route 1 is kind of crazy even when there's nothing going on though.

You guys must have been real OC to get tear gased though. That's some university of Pittsburgh shit LOL.
