E90 Wheels... What Color?!?!

I have a new (to me) white 2008 M3 Sedan that is currently bone stock. As everyone does... I am making a list of possible future mods, with much help from the many threads here.

I have a set of M6 Wheels that were on my wife's 328 wagon (which looked pretty wicked) until we sold it... They are begging to be powder coated/painted and put on the M3.... BUT, WHAT COLOR?!?!

If anyone has pictures of different color wheels.... Post em up!

I personally like either of the OEM 19" M3 wheels over M6 wheels.

Ordering spacers for the stock wheels to give a little more "anger" to the stance.

The M6 wheels wouldn't be the norm that I'd pick.... Thinking Tennessee Orange would really pop with the addition of some carbon fiber bits over the white. Probably only using them for track days and local meets anyway... Problem is I think the orange would attract "unwanted" attention and may be too loud.

Noticed the logo in your sig... Gonna need to get BPMSport on some custom coding as well.
