This is the best pic I currently have

What would the custom color swatch look like in a 19" VB3?

Very nice. In the second and third pic of the storm grey, which wheel is which (V710's vs VB3). I have some friends, including me, trying to choose between the two styles. One wants a ton of dish/lip on her wheels.

I wish the car was white for the textured blacks. On the IB it looks like steel wheels.
Jet looks pretty good. Wonder what silver and gold look like. Gold would be a huge departure for me, but it might work.

Gold or Bronze would look great on blue. Subaru perfected this look, so Im sure on an M3 it would even look better, although I still prefer the Jet Anthracite color

The jet anthracite and storm grey preserve the current color scheme of the car. Perhaps I need to swap some chrome for black and add a lip to balance it out. Right now I am not sure about the color of the stock wheels. I wish you guys were up in the Bay Area so I could come down and make a decision. I will have to think about it, but the wheels are a great buy.

I did point someone your way to order wheels in Michigan. Sounds like she got the matte or textured black.

I agree with you, however I dont think adding a lip is completely necessary. If it were my car I would do the following to it:

-gunmetal colored wheel
-matte black front and side grilles
-BMW performance front splitters
-(possibly) lower the car

Thats really all these cars need, they look excellent stock in my opinion, so just adding little upgrades is all it needs

I was looking at the splitters. They are a lot but they look good. Also looking to lower the car, just investigating which is the best option.

Storm Grey is darker and has more of a blue hue to the color than the standard gunmetal

Unfortunately we don't currently have any shots mounted on a car.

All PMs have been replied! Let me know if you'd like a quote on some custom finish VMRs.
