Opinion on matching w/ CF

What do you guys think matches best with CF roof. Forget the color of the car for a sec. If you were to just match the wheel color with the CF which would you pick: Gunmetal/Black? Which do you think looks best?

Black would be almost a direct match. Gunmetal doesn't really match with carbon fiber BUT it could be the best option to match BOTH the car and the roof

I notice that the CF kidney grills that are made by, ex, **********s, are somewhat gunmetal-looking and definitely not black (search their site). It just seems to me that Gunmetal would match that well, but IDK about the roof. I don't own an M3, so I can't say...

^^^IMO that's pushing it, + there's no good CF wheel other than Dymags, which really aren't all that strong for potholes, and 2500$ each, and all the CF overlay wheels are useless.
