replacing carpet... color?

due to some unforeseen circumstances, the carpet in the 2001 330i needs to be replaced. Interior is grey, thinking of going black. Opinions?

Keep in mind that the floor mats are grey, and would need to be changed if something other than grey is chosen. I know I am.

that would be a material, not a color. And suede is not durable enough for use as carpet.

Black. Black carpet looks good in any color interior.

Black works better with the dash. You'll still have enough grey.

Black carpet....I have black carpet with a grey Interior (pillars)
I just spent the day detailing the Interior for bimmerfest , Did a major carpet cleaning using a carpet extractor , Let me say after I was done the carpets (front and back) Look nice and fresh and they sure as hell shine , I didnt think It was that bad till I saw the tank pitch black , Also being a smoker doesnt help !
