That would look so much hotter on a black car than the chrome would.

Yeah id go with gun metal on your car, however im just not feeling the m3 reps on your ride

Here's a pic of some m5 reps that I think would look better on your car (gunmetal of course). Iv seen m3 reps on other larger BMW's and it just wasnt my thing. Maybe its just me
