what color lm-r for jet black m3 coupe?

hey guys, im about to order some lm-rs but am torn on the finish, the dbk looks awesome but im not sure how it would look on a black car, the silver looks very clean, also considering the bp finish which is just a basic black, but it seems that the "blacked out" look is sorta gettin old, any advice/opinions? order is gonna be placed by the end of the week....many thanks

Does BBS offer all those colors for the LM-R or are you getting them colored after?

get silver - looks classy and will endure time. all black looks like a fad to me. unless you want to paint them a new color every year. I also prefer some contrast between the body and wheels.

dbk seems like it would be a happy medium, but im sure they must be harder to repair than silver...
