MR M3 color combination?

I think MR is one of the hardest to do color combo exterior.

I do envy white/black M3 owners that have different color side gills, hood vents and mirror caps.

Yet I do not see too much done for MR, so far MR + CF/gloss/matte black is all I have seen.

I was thinking about MR with some LSB parts like mentioned above.

What do you guys think? or any idea is appreciated

Yeah I currently have CF parts on but I am thinking about doing something different.

MR + silver/white/LSB (both colors will be gloss)

MR and blacks look good. Not sure about the other colors you mentioned.

MR and LSB? No way

Only black and cf in my opinion.
