///M color scheme

hey whats up guys this is my first post, I just bought black 01 M3 6 speed manual but I'm having a hard time choosing what to do with all the grills/badges color wise. I wanted to get black kidney grills and fender gills. The chromish paint on the wheels is starting to chip so I was thinking about Plasti dipping them gold until I can afford real wheels. Another thing is The badges are original and being an 01 they're starting to fade so I was thinking about replacing the trunk m3 badge with the matte black german flag colors and then carrying the same thing onto the wheels and fender gills, but Mfest wants 85 bucks for just the Little gill badges and that's pretty ridiculous so I might just end up replacing them with the oem badges and calling it good. Now the dilemma is what to do with the wheels because I feel like gold wheels with the oem Bavarian color badges would look a little weird. So any suggestions for grill/fender gill/badge/wheel color combinations?

ive got blacked out everything, courtesy of previous owner.
i'd go body colour grills, matt black vents, but chrome badging with ///M colour scheme.
gold wheels will be awesome with this combo, as long as there's a chrome lip in there somewhere.

I was thinking oem badge colors with the matte m3 part would look good, then just get matte black grills and yolo it on the gold wheels
