I've powdercoated my wheels on both my X6M (black) and the winter set on my wife's X6 35i (gun metal). I think both look fantastic, personally. I don't know about the painting process, but I've been very happy with powdercoating.

+1, or a graphite. Honestly, though, the car looks perfect as is.

Here are a couple pictures of the 20" OEM wheels on my X6M, powdercoated in a color called "Stone Black," with an additional clearcoat layer for added shine.

Car looks great. IMHO Black rims are kind of played out.

Leave them alone. I think the 373m wheels looks great on my '14 650 coupe. Am going to add red BMW logo caliper covers however from MGP.

Liquid black oem BMW wheels are not powder coated it's a different process to get to that kind of shin it can be done but it will cost you more then buying those wheels from bmw

I noticed that you have posted the car picture from a magazine and it is not of your own car.......Assuming your car has metal trim around the doors, I'd leave it as it is as they play well with each other.....I'd leave my wheels as is even if the trim on the car was shadowline vs metal. I like modern and clean lines the M-Wheels fit the bill perfectly to me.
