Lightbulb Powder coat my 230s?

Do you guys think that I should powder coat my 230s? I really like this style rim, but I want a different color. I was thinking gloss black, but my car is BSM and I thought it would look too black... What do you guys think about gunmetal? I can't picture if it would look good or not. Or should I go gloss black?
Here's a pic I found.

Ouch..if you're in love with that style I would bite the bullet. But for that much cash into ONE wheel I would say it's almost worth saving for a whole new set of wheels?

Voted for gloss black btw, I think black on black looks really classy. :P
