VMR V701 or V718 on AW E90 335i

Guys I have decided that first set of wheels will be either VMR V701 or V718. Now I am still unsure which one to choose and if I should go Matte Black or Gunmetal. My car is all white with carbon fiber spoiler/diffuser and Matte black front grill. Which do you guys think would look better and what color

thanks for the input!

The VMR V701 wheels do have a sporty and aggressive look. It is one of my designs from VMR personally. Here are a few pictures of both the Matte Black and Gunmetal finishes for you to check out!

Personally, I'd prefer gunmetal but if you have matte black accents on your car that could look really nice too. For a wheel model choice though, that's kind of tough. It depends on what you're into really. The straight spokes of the V701 are pretty sporty, but the mesh styling of the V718 is classic.
