Pictures do not do them justice. You need to look at pictures taken without flash to get a better impression. They do look almost all black with just enough sparkle to make them very dynamic looking.
I have not, I admit. Too late for me, as I have changed my order back to silver wheels after seeing the pics above.

You cannot go wrong with any of the two choices anyway

Exactly as I was too, SO or SS? My order started out with SO, after I finally saw nice pics of the SS, I changed. Then back again, then to back to SS for a last and final, it drove me nuts as well as my SA though he was very gracious throughout my indecisiveness. So I feel your pain, really I do...!

For what its worth, my SA really wanted me to go SO but in the end I needed to go with a color I could live with for a long time, not to mention SS with the blk rims would be a dream to keep clean. I did see a video of SO dirty and glad I made the switch. That and the fact I came from jet black(always in need of washing) for the last past 15 yrs, so I had had enough.

Good luck with your choice, both are great colors, both are M specific but both give off completely different vibes so to speak, so chose wisely my friend.

My dealership just got a silverstone M4 - it still had a lot of its shipping materials. It is optioned with black marino, DCT, standard 'blue' brakes and the black wheels. In the sunlight (it was outside), of the pictures in this thread, the 'Istanbul' one above comes closest to how it looked. The sculpted creases along the sides are much more pronounced in this colour than the ones I've seen. The crests and badges pop out more too in a good way. Even though I personally do not prefer this colour it has a strange way of staying with you and making a greater impression on you after you look at it. It's haunting in a way. In all, this colour seems to me to be the most playful of the bunch in the sense that it has so many different looks to it and then makes you remember them. I think those of you who choose this colour are going to be quite pleased with your choice. You definitely won't bore of it easily.

Please, please take pictures. I can't wait to see a good picture of SS with the black wheels.

Here you go. As an added bonus, I got to drive it. just around the parking lot mind you and barely out of first gear. But still. I liked the sound from outside. Even on start up. My impressions are few given the limitations. The driving position, shifter, pedals etc all fit me like a glove. The car was very light feeling and easy to drive. Around a parking lot anyway.

What were your impressions of the look with the black wheels?

I think black is the way to go for sure. Look at the picture how the blacks tie in nicely with the tint, black trim around the window and of course the carbon fibre roof.

To me the more critical choice is the interior. While black works as usual, the somewhat washed out exterior demands something punchier - like a lighter coloured suit needing a more boldly coloured tie.

I think you mentioned that you're going with the SO interior. In my opinion this is the best move to make with this colour and will make for a very synergistic combination.

I appreciate your comment here, since I ordered my M3 with Silverstone with SO interior and black wheels with CF roof

Cheers!

Greg, we have to got to arrange a WA/OR M3/M4 meet up when our cars are here. Maybe somewhere in between Portland and Seattle. Will take a lot of pictures and do a lot of M talk.

That looks interesting. I don't think my car will be here in time for registration.

Some people in e90 m3 forum still refers their color as silverstone ii.

I am not big fan of this color (seen one in real life) when it shows light blue tint on it. It looks nice when it shows only silver color (indoor shots or during cloud day).
I'm really conflicted, I too dislike any light-blue hue. But don't notice that blue-hint on my friend's 2014 335i, is the M4 Silverstone truly a different silver?
