SuperSilver vs. Hyperblack?

Ordering my CSL's soon. Which do you think would look better on my Silver 330ci? SuperSilver or HyperBlack? I'm torn between the two.

both will look amazing, CSL wheels are gorgeous. hyper black might compliment the grilles you got there though.

Thats what I was thinking. I've seen pictures of both and love the way both look. Love the crisp cleanness of the silver, but the black looks aggressive! I know i'll be happy if I get the silver. I'm worried that if I get the black I may regret it... but I may also like it better than the silver. Decisions...

Well the silver keep the classy look still to the bmw im my opinion. The black makes it more aggressive I think. But its like the same with our matt black grills, those look more aggressive and the silver looks classy. Its your own opinion on what look you are going for. I say silver

Exactly! I'm really leaning more towards the silver. Its what I wanted from the beginning. I'll probably just have to see more pictures of the hyperblack and then compare. Wish I could just buy them both! haha

I would go with silver unless you are trying to achieve the blacked out look, which would require additional mods. Silver is always a class act... Cheers.

VMR VB3 inventory fluctuates just as much as gas prices do to be honest, so it's tough to hang on them because they sell so much. I'll send you a PM to see what we can do.

Once you go black... no, in this case you'll actually want to come back.
