Yah i think the stock colors are best to, after lookn around a lot of people with the Black ZCP wheels have the stock color and it looks real good, But if my car was AW, SG, or red the black/silver ones look bad ass, imo.

Silverstone color here too! Honestly if your going blackchrome I would go the black ones!

Love to see pics of your car when you get the wheels or before! So I can get some ideas since Im just starting out. I just ordered from IND the jet black side markers, grill and jet black front reflectors.

Have you gotten a diffuser or front splitter in black yet? Would look good on our cars, but I hate poor fittament so if you have let me know what you got!

Get a set of custom ones from Luftkraft Fabrication. That's what I did. They can do any color or texture you want. I went with stock colors but did all the chrome parts in Titanium Silver Metallic.

I can get you some pretty good color matched emblem overlays. I have seen some amazing color combinations!

I thought about changing mine out, and then my friend, who also happens to own a BMW, slapped me upside the head. His reasoning? The roundel IS bmw. It's their trademark and it's iconic. It's like altering the coca cola emblem--don't do it!
