Gloss black

I don't think CF looks good on MW

CF looks great on AW, but I feel Gloss Black is best with MW

My friend has matte black on her E93 and it looks really good. The matte helps have a different color texture against the MW.

I have mw and I had mine painted black sapphire metallic. The metallic part is very subtle (looks like gloss black from afar), but looks great with the metallic white.
