Too much black.

Get a front filler strip!

Also some Back to Black or Forever Black would help you condition the rub strips.

Love the stickers.

Agreed. Return the wheels to stock color, they'll look TONS more expensive/premium, and either refinish/paint the trim or get new trim. You can see the oxidation and buffer swirls on the plastic bumper trim. very obvious. Otherwise good and clean.

I don't know what your budget is but there are always really nice 17" 18" oem BMW wheels on craigslist sometime already with tires ranging from $300 on up.
It could really set off the look of your car.

My long term goal for rims are apex arc 8s, but I found a set of 19s and 18s on Craigslist for 300 that I might pickup

As others have said, stock oem color would be best if you plan of keeping these wheels!

Yea but you'll probably have to do 3 or more applications. Mine looked patchy with just one or two coats.
