Are these gunmetal or hyper black? I cant tell becsause theyre so shiny but they look to have that hyper black tone, looks good, i sitll cant figure it out i would like to stay on the conservative side when it comes to looks, i have stock suspension with clear corners and factory grills (front and side) although gunmetal looks good from the cars ive seen, theyre all dropped, mine wont be.

Any pics of the CB with these CSl reps in 18s would also be much appreciated.

I'm really liking the hyper blacks or gunmetal on the CB as they look more aggresive and different from the usual silver.

those are hyper black on Jet black. Jet black is also much darker than carbon black. They are two totally different colors. Carbon black is actually a really dark blue.

I would skip the reps and get ZCPs, they look much better.

Sean, OT but any troubles with your K&N on the M3? Just wondering cos I've heard mixed things. BTW, I think I like the hyperblack wheels....very agressive.

Hyperblack or gunmetal (or even matte black) if you're stuck on CSLs (or reps). Silver CSLs do nothing for the CB E46 M3 IMHO.

But if you have the budget, silver BBS CHs!

To the poster asking about the color of the car in the "jet black" pic, I think that poster meant the wheels are black; the car is definitely carbon black.

But they only come in that bright silver which I'm not a fan of anymore...been there, done that. BTW, this is for a winter setup on my next M3 and no way will I get 19 ZCPs for that.
