Good morning,
I'm having a difficult time deciding what looks better on a Portimao Blue M340i (will be leasing) -

the 19 inch 791M Jet Black wheels vs the 19 inch 791M Bi-Color / Jet Black wheels

I'm going to get either the stock grill with the black and cerium gray colors
vs changing to a black kidney grill / Black M Performance Grill (depending on Parking Assistance options)

Is the right way of thinking about this black grill with Jet Black wheels vs stock grill with Bi-Color wheels?

I'm just not sure about the all Jet Black wheels on a Portimao Blue ... is it a mismatch?

The last question was if it is decided to go Black and Black, do the cerium gray mirrors stand out strangely?

Thanks guys!

Number 2 but in Tanzanite Blue II Metallic looks menacing and cool.

Black Wheels are past their expiration date.

So not true, the 791 jet black are the best looking wheels next to actually black m wheels

Yeah a lot like the all black look. Personally I like some contrast. This is my Black Edition 420BHP Suburban. Little bit of shine to break up the murder.



Had the similar wheels on my black 435. Would have liked the Bi-Color better. Too much shine.



Its really good that they do offer a wide choice of wheels, something that sets the car off, and can appeal to people with a lot of different looks.

IMHO the best looking wheels from BMW were the 19" 313's on the 335is.

These were my favorites. My old 335is 7DCT 313's in 19". Have an 18" set on the 135is convert.

On my 2016 340i in Estoril Blue I went with the black grill and the grey wheels that went with the track package and that combo worked really well. When I ordered my 2020 M340i in Portimao Blue the blacked out grill was not yet available. I felt the bi-color wheels (with the go flats) worked well with the grill that was now somewhat bi-color and the grey mirror caps. It all also coordinates with the bi-color grill/trim in the Ari ducts up front. So my vote would be picture 1 up there which is what I've got.

It's obviously all personally preference, for me...the black kidney grille makes the car...it's a must have. I'm not a fan of the all black rims...I like the contrast...I'd go with the last picture but I like the M double-spoke cerium wheels
