Does anyone know if the 18s are now silver and no longer greyish like before? I saw 2015 post for a F80 w/ 18s that were bright silver.

Depends on the look you are going for, I've always liked the silver wheels on SMB because I'm not a fan of the "murdered" look. The body is dark and needs to be contrasted to really set it off, imo.

Right there with you. I like BSM, but give me the silver wheels too. I'd also combo it up with any interior other than black. SO, SS, Amaro, or Gold Brown would pair up wonderfully in my opinion.

I was on the same boat until I saw 2 M4s and 1 M3 all black on black on black and it did look nice.

You're over-thinking it. Both wheels look really good, but I think you made the right decision going with the black wheels. If the car was a little lower and had spacers, it would look perfect.

I'm about to finalize my decision to get my black sapphire f80, but one thing worries me... Does the black paint take away from the carbon fiber roof? I'm purposefully not getting a moonroof for the cf roof, but a little concerned that it might not even make a difference look wise (since it'll still look black). I mean i'll know its there and it'll make me happy knowing its there.. But moonroof... sigh

I love my BSM. I got triple black. Yes the roof is something you have to look to notice but love the combo nevertheless.
This is my DD and I didn't want any brave colors and couldn't do white. I m happy at the end.
Se my car pics above and tell me do you really need that roof to stand out?

Btw, feedback I got so far from people (non M people) was: "What is carbon fiber?" And "is this a vinyl wrap?"

I have BSM and the cf roof still stands out. In bright sun it looks lighter than the rest of the car, like a dark grey next to the black paint.
