Black / pressed graphite / mag Blue TE37SL with Silverstone E90 M3 - Opinions please!

Fellas,

Would like your opinions regarding "best" color 18" TE37SL's on Silverstone 2011 E90 M3- black vs pressed graphite vs mag blue? I've been hemming and hawing for a month...wife hasn't been all that helpful either.

Thanks-

My opinion is either mag blue or graphite. I lean more towards graphite

Thanks for the input- agree that black or graphite will definitely look good and are probably safer choices. I am smitten by the Mag Blue though...and think it will may work well with the blue-ish overtones of Silverstone. Unfortunately, there only a couple of pix of this combination and the lighting isn't great- so hard to tell. Also considering a set of the black Arkym J12's that are for sale on this board...but they're 19's and I'm also concerned the detailing may be hard to make out due to the color. Grrrrr.....
