Question black e90 need help M359 or SF-71?

I have a black 335xi (35% tint, gloss black grills), looking at getting some wheels on it. I'm set on getting 19" but am having trouble deciding on the Avant Garde m359 or the Alufelgen SF-71. It seems as if the M359 is a little more aggressive wheel, but the different finish options for the SF-71 can really change the look of the car. In some pictures I really like the hyperblack finish, but in others it looks kinda dirty/cheap (havent seen them in person though).


M359 would be silver finish. SF-71 I'm thinking hyper black or silver.

M359 here

SF-71 here


Opinions\thoughts are appreciated.

The SF-71 is too busy of a design in my eyes with the secondary inner back trim around the spokes. So my opinion is the 359. Though, the AG offsets are too aggressive for my tastes so I would go with another 359 rep. But again, my opinion probably won't jive with most.

Good luck
