I really like the stock silver color. Even on a silver car they look great. Love the style 32's, good choice!

so just have them refinished on some sort of silver? I was thinking white but that's just a thought...

maybe a metallic silver like a little darker silver just so its contrasts form the car silver a little, I don't want to match like the car completely

There is a website where you can select your car, wheel style, wheel color, and see how it looks. Then you can visualize how different colors look. Search around. Someone here may know the link.

Also, just Google "E46 style 32" and choose Images. There you can see a metric buttload of different cars with those wheels.

Shadow chrome. The same color the OEM style 65 wheels comes in.. which is what you should have left them IMO.

If your looking for ideas, wanna be different and like the idea of black wheels (which it looks like you do), you could always leave the barrels silver and powder the spokes/centers black....

Not white. I think that would look awful with silver.
