Contour Colors

I've had my car for a few months now, and it has been stock for a while. I've been researching the threads and have decided that I wanted to add a "contour color" to my jet black E90 M3 to present more of a club sport theme. this will consist of painting the side vents, hood louvers, side views, and wheels one color (other then black). I wanted to get some feedback from you guys on what color and to go threw with it or not.

Gray would be the most understated and "adult" of the options. Primary colors are "boy racer" IMO.

Hey, I never said "boy racer" was bad.

It is funny, though. My 1M is the first car that I've EVER owned that wasn't black, white, silver or gray.

What about trying a vinyl wrap for the parts mentioned? I don't know how that will work for the wheels but I bet it's cheaper than paint and if you don't like it you can switch.
My vote goes GT3 orange

Red Definitally goes well with black, but the only thing that is holding me back from that combo is, that fact that its been repeated on soo many times on soo many cars. But not a bad choice at all, it would be my first choice actually .

Red always looks amazing with black. Green would work too if done right.

Gold looks great if it is pulled off right, maybe more bronze-like than actual gold, like lotus does.

Here is the closest I found to your other choices so you can kind of see:

I voted red, but if you want unique the green here looks sick and will look better on your jet black car imo.
I personally would just make green accents, not wheels (meaning make the following green: brake calipers, bmw emblem (black and green), interior stitching and trim, scoops (if you want scoops), maybe mirror caps, maybe gills (aka side vents))

This would look sharp with black I think
