Perfect colour combo there, makes a change from the usual boring black. Been thinking this colour would look good with MCB.

Looks great on yours but wouldn't go with my the Sing Grey on my M.
Were they paint sprayed or have the plasicote treatment?

Do you have a before pic to compare against? I'm considering this option as well with my 343 wheels. Thanks!

Gloss black before. Too dark and hides wheel design.

I have a 2013 M5 Singapore Grey. I had the wheels painted matte gunmetal gray. The wheel refinisher made it a bit darker similar to that on the factory Tesla S wheel.

Thanks for sharing the before and after comparison. I definitely like the Gloss Gunmetal over the Gloss Black. Turned out great! My list keeps growing...

Looks Good! Wondering how the gunmetal color would pair with a Sapphire Black M5. I currently have my wheels powder coated gloss black wouldn't mind a change

A couple of my wheels have tiny bits of kerb rash and I've been thinking of having them tarted up. The gloss gunmetal looks really sweet. Thanks for posting this.

Nice color choice! I have a similar color on my 15 CP.

I think I had 265/35 winter tires all around when these photos were taken. I've switched to 265/35 and 295/30 summer tires now. I'll be running winter tires on the CP wheels instead since I like these more!

I just picked up a 2016 in azurite black metallic and it has black 343Ms. My plan is to powdercoat those in a similar color to OP's wheels and use those as winter rims, then pick up a set of BBS CI-Rs for the rest of the year. I will let you know how it turns out!

Love it! I'm going to do similar to match the "Black Chrome" bits from IND. Currently my wheels are stock chrome on my BSM which I like with the stock chrome bits. I am going to replace the kidney grills, the side vents, and the trunk M5 emblem with the black chrome parts from IND and am worried they won't be "chrome" enough to go with the stock chrome wheels. We'll see, but I may be doing what you did to tie in the color accents.
