You're going to get a lot of comments on the Porsche logo on a BMW.

What do you think?
Painted is cool, but IMO silver is the only colour for a silver car. Looks clean, classy and not at all gaudy.

How about a matte bronze finish like the Brembo racing calipers? I had my silver Alcons painted in a similar way.



I think that would look tough against silver without contrasting too much. Its not like you're going to miss them anyway!

I'm thinking candy orange with a white BMW logo (decal off the 135 performance brakes).

Are you wanting to stay close to oem?

There's always Kermit green, gun metal grey, light blue, pink...

I think your car looks good on Red or Silver because of your car is dark colour



But for me Yellow will be alright.

Just need to get headers first, then I will likely go where you went to get yours done, since they have done it before...easier me thinks.
