Jerez W/gunmetal?

I'm trying to talk myself in to a new set of wheels, I have searched for hours to find this combo, or even anyone discussing this combination and keep coming up empty handed. I have looked at the VB3 and VMR710 in gunmetal, does anyone know of a member with this set up so I might see how aggressive the look changes, or is it not a good look which is why I’m not finding anything.
I have the oem black grills and a new bumper with the reflectors shaved ready to go on in a couple of weeks. I just feel like the wheels will be the finishing touch.
I'm starting to think I should have ordered AW, seeing as how everything works well with it.

Got a little creative with google and found this, still not ZCP style but closer.


Thoughts?

The info I found on these are VMR 710 in matte anthracite which EAS carries.

I have a set of gunmetal Forgestar F14s on my JZB E90 and love em. I don't have any pics handy but the link in the previous sentense gives a good sense of what they look like.

Cheers.

Gunmetal wheels look 100x better than black wheels.

I like gunmetal as well. I am running Magnesium Blue Volk CE28s and during the day the paint of the car matches the wheels pretty good. I may go back to my old 18 inch gold ADVAN RG2s this summer.
