18's on M3

Brand new to the forum, I get a hold of my Jet Black M3 on Monday and can't wait. I have a question though, are all 18's that come on the car that dark finish? Seems the dealership here in West Virginia couldn't answer that question...I ordered the 18s on mine and I like how the dark wheels look on a black car.

I believe that is correct. Somebody had their 18's refinished in a lighter silver. I tried searching for it but couldn't find the thread. Good luck.

yea they're grey color very nice IMO. I prefer the 19" silver color but I'm getting the 18" since they still look good. I am going for extra set of wheels + winter tires so that's $1200 saved instead of the 19" wheels will just about pay for an extra set of wheels.

The 18s are approximately the same color as space grey.

i thought the same thing when looking at the 18's... they look very bulbous/chunky.
