BBS LM Gold or Silver?

Which color combo would look better on a jet black 08 m3? Gold sounds sick but not sure. I also thought about having them powder coated gloss black but i dont want to kill the resale value. Any input would be appreciated!

Silver will be timeless and guaranteed to look good. Gold BBS LMs arent made as often as the silver, so i think the gold would be a nice touch and different from the norm. If you have red interior, the gold may not mesh well though

Gold! I had no luck getting them though, at least not in the size and fitment i wanted. After calling BBS plenty of times they told me they weren't making them any time soon. I waited all winter and ended up picking up the silvers. Hopefully you have better luck then me. Post them up if you do get your hands on them, id love to see them on another white m3.

Very interesting to see all the gold responses. I say without a doubt SILVER. Obviously you can't go wrong with LM's, though. I know I'd get bored with gold after a short while.
