Black or Silver Satin tips on e90?

Im probably getting the new ESS full exhaust. So should I get black or Silver Satin tips on an e90? Opinions needed.

Depends on the car color. I love how the Akra CF tips look on my SG.

The carbon on the Arka is sweet, but the ESS black isnt carbon but looks good, i think the Satin looks great, i love that look i would go with them.

Brief search found these pics. I'd go or silver finish on a black car so the tips stand out, unles you are going for the all black look. That's MHO. Not ESS's exhaut in the pics but you can have an idea. Keep in mind the inside of the tips will get black.

PS: posting from iPad, could not load both pics on same post.

1. Akra Ti tips
