Get polished wheels and keep the chrome front and side grilles.
Have you seen this thread:Click Me
btw dont chrome the trim, just my opinion, but it looks terrible.

yea ive seen those pictures but every1 says its looks differnet in person. When u say polish the rims you mean dont get chrome rims just keep stock? and if i have chrome rims i dont think chrome trim would look too bad not much else on the car is chrome.

I have a JZB coupe, which looks to be similar enough where I feel I can pontificate -- er, comment.

I tried flat black grilles, they looked better than the OEM chrome-framed grilles, but then I got black chrome and that's a nice balance -- the shine seems to add a nice finish to the richness of the color.

I also got black satin chrome side grilles, but that effect is more subtle.

I do like the look of black cars with black wheels, but my stock ZCP wheels have a real dazzle I just love. If you go with polished wheels, you'll probably want to keep the chromed side grilles, not sure about the kidney grilles.

I look forward to nice professional photos with AZB and JZB M3s side by side.
