Black BBS CH

I need to know opinions on black BBS CH 19 on a black 325i sedan. My only concern is that there will be too much black, but on the other hand these rims are a thing of beauty! If anyone has any good sugestions for alternatives, please let me know your 2 cents! Thanks all.

I am not voting because I have never even seen a pic of the combo, but I do love the wheel itself

They are gorgeous wheels, so long as you carry the blackout theme on the rest of the car, it will work well. I had the silver CHs on my E46 sedan but wish they offered black back then.

Depending what kind of theme your going for, MB may work out. If you are into the blacked out theme, generally smoked corners and tail lights compliment it nicely. If you are going for a more subtle look, Silver might be a better bet.

It all depends on what you going for like the all black out or silver on black whitch in my perspective looks better.
But it's all up to you, I would search alot before you decide.

What I am thinking is to carry out a black and white theme. Having tinted windows and clear corners I'm thinking the CH's with a silver lip will look good.

no. don't do a gloss black with a silver lip. that will make them look cheap. I mean if u really wanna do something diff you could always try white. Idk how good thad look but maybe someone could ps it for you?

My Ride: e46 cabrio
go for it

my first bimmer, black e90, was black/black w/black trim and barely legal tint.
i loved her but was afraid of the slush box(didn't really like it either). i had plans for black wheels for her! picture narusa's car w/dark tint=exqusite, imo!
i plan to do the same w/my mystic blue cabrio after i decide whether to remove the chrome trim($$$).
i'm kicking around the idea of keeping the chrome(-$$$)and puting(sp?) on some oz racing.
post pics when you're done.
