Fire orange suggestions

So I switched at the last moment and bought a Lime Rock instead of the mineral white I had on order. I pick it up Friday in Spartanburg

Anyway, I would like to tweak a couple of the usual suspects and looking for suggestions on which side gills would match the factory black kidneys. I was thinking gloss black with clear lenses.

I think I would also want to look at the black vent trim and thinking the gloss black one from IND.

From there, the keyhole cover and painted reflectors are a given.

Just in case I am coming across as a fashionista, the stoptech BBK and RAC RG63s are already in the garage waiting.

If anyone has any pics of the gloss pieces installed, I'd appreciate it esp a before and after on the hood

Thanks
Ryun

First of all, congrats on the purchase. Second, BMW makes black chrome for both the front kidneys and side vents as well. So if you're going with the OEM black chrome kidney grills, I'd suggest keeping with OEM for the side vents as well.

Congrats. Where abouts in Atlanta are you? I'm in Canton, about 45 minutes north of Atl. I want to see your car.
