blacked out parts on white M5?

i am planning to order an alpine white F10 M5 with full sakhir orange interior. so my question is should i get the blacked out grill/side vent/rims? im also getting the carbon fiber rear spoiler so idk if the blacked out parts will match or will it look better with the stock chrome.

btw, is the carbon fiber mirror caps available for the f10 M5 as a customized factory order option?

Personally, I think a carbon fiber rear spoiler will look better with blacked out grilles and gills than with the factory chrome parts.

There's some examples of alpine white M5 with blacked out pieces @ http://f10.m5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=586581

Which photo? There are M5s in the Alpine White thread with both chrome and black gills.

Have black on my AW m3 and it gives it just the little bit of "bad boy" that a white car needs IMO.

Both look good because the M5 looks great . Go with chrome for a more classy executive look and black for sportier aggressive look. But if you're adding a black or carbon fiber spoiler it will match black parts more than chrome. Or maybe split the difference and get black chrome grilles and gills.

Check the black m5 pics thread or search 'black chrome' there's an owner here that got it on his car and it looks excellent.

Same here - Im going to get the performance grill as well as the black gills. What are people's thoughts on a black spoiler as well? On Alpine White that is.
