Default CSL reps...Hyper silver or hyper black on carbon Black car?

I've finally settled on buying a set of CSL reps for my carbon black e46 m3

Can you guys kindly assist me in the final decision making process.....Hyper silver or hyper black ?

I'm minded to go hyper silver as I want to retain an OEM appearance of sorts.....but I do like the H.black wheels too....

Any pictures and opinions would be gratefully received !

Ps I will also be lowering the car in future although I'm undecided as to which suspension route so I don't mind pics of lowered cars if you have any with the above wheels on!

Hyper silver for Carbon Black. Sorry the pictures are so rubbish; I just took a few snaps when they were fitted last week. The car is not very clean.

I have a carbon black csl rep and the black csl wheels look the nuts in my opinion
I don’t have any pics to hand as I’m on an iPad but check out my build thread plenty on there

Black on black sucks - my opinion. Looks like a drug dealers chavved up pimp mobile.

On the other hand, black E46s look pure class on crisp silver CSLs.

Keep it classy and OEM - step away from the black grills and smoked depos if you were thinking about those too...

My winter wheels were satin black 18"s when I got them and I didn't like the look at all. A triple black car needs a bit of contrast to lift it. Maybe someone should try black spokes and a silver rim a la Fuchs alloys used on 911s

I think I'm with you on this one Keith

I like a crisp look, and generally dislike pimped/chav/dug dealer looking cars

I'm sold on hyper silver me thinks....although more pics could easily reverse that decision!!
