Colour combo's with Jerez Black

Guys I have a JB E92 with black wheels

I'm trying to break up all the black a little and I want to start by having the mirror covers in a different colour, as well as the side grills

What would work well? And if you have any pics that would be awesome..

See I thought about silver but then I think it looks too Audi S model

I'm thinking to go matte yellow maybe or green

Do you have any pics of what white or silver would look like?

I've thought of red, carbon fiber, you name it but I never thought of silver. It might just look good

If your car is aggressive enough then I'd go with a Lambo green.

OP is your car pretty modded? If not I wouldn't paint mirror covers and such. Instead I break up the JB with something other then black wheels.

Completely agree, black wheels on a black car is too much imo.. unless you want that murdered out look.

I had this idea a while back. Went with an M5 paint scheme on the carbon caps. Its subtle most of the time, maybe a bit to much on the Jerez but looks cool when you see it in the sun light.

If your going with black wheels on a black car it's pretty much blacked out... in that case black would look best IMO unless you have some nice accent colors you want to throw in there.
