    a darker color will show less brake dust, if that's a motivator for ya

                I vote no paint for what it is worth. Although I like the look of the darker grey (posted above).


                  Update: I decided on the factory silver color. Basically I want them to look like this:

                  Still trying to find info about factory wheel colors. Was the original color for factory BBS weaves (whether basketweaves, euroweaves, or RZ378s) a BBS color or a BMW color? Is there a difference? Did they come in multiple shades of silver throughout the years?

                      I have a brilliantrot E30 and am deciding on what color to paint my euroweaves. I was thinking the "BBS silver" or something a little darker but lighter than Nogaro. I ended up deciding to go with a hyper silver because I thought it would be a good bright contrast. We will see. Can't go wrong with the BBS silver though!
