Wrap Color Suggestions

Since the re-wrap of my bumper is covered from being backed into, I'm going to take the opportunity to re-wrap the whole car– otherwise it would have looked like a two-toned mess. I'm debating on going with a different color, but was curious if anyone had seen anything nice and had some suggestions. Surprisingly, 3M is terrible about showing their full catalog of colors on their site.. so I've seen a couple on their site, but I know there are a LOT of colors.

So by all means, I'm open to a lot of suggestions, but not looking for anything too bright. And if you want to tell me wraps are so 2 years ago, I will then want to tell you I really don't care

Here's the car in matte black (nothing else about the car has changed):

If you don't want too bright of a color, go with 3M or Oracal's new Satin Black. If you like white, go with 3M or Hexis Satin Pearl White Metallic. 3M Matte grey aluminum is another nice option however it has been done before.

thanks everyone for the feedback. Definitely looked through the suggestions, and settled on something (and even went against my own pre-requisites)

Will be posting up some pics once it's done

Original color is Jerez black, and definitely thought about a satin clear wrap. The only issue is that the rear amuse bumper isn't actually painted, so I would have had to go out and get that painted before having it wrapped. Im actually moving at the end of this week, so with my back against the wall a bit I had to just pull the trigger and get it done.

I comped out the color on my car that im going with, and Im not sure how long it will last haha. I think it will look good, but I'll probably be back to a black-ish theme soon– and maybe that satin clear wrap

well, I bought a roll of hexis satin wrap, I was thinking of wrapping the flat face (where the m3 logo and trunk badge is, and also the flat back side of my MSport spoiler) of the car and see how that looks, mine is JZB too!
