Man, silver looks sick! I would definitely go with that. It really pops with the contrast of the black interior. Let me know if you need any help!

I would - Silver is a hard color to pull off since it is so bright. Titanium gives the best of both worlds since it's not as dark as black - but not as flashy as Silver.

Here's a few reviews you can reference from our M3 brethren:

if you are going with cf on the outise of your car, AND you have an AW exterior, i would definitely go with black cf on the outside and inside.

This changed everything as you want your colors to match.

Since the roundels are only offered in black, silver or both - those are your choices. I would choose black as most exterior pieces will be offered in this color.
