I also have SS on SS M4 on order. As much as I wanted to like the black interior, I find it is way too dark and austere in the rear seat area. There is only black back there without one single contrasting element. The SS interior almost seems like a black interior with silver contrasting leather.
I'm going with the Sakhir Orange interior - I think it will be a nice complement.

I can't make up my mind on the wheels though. I was also set on the black wheels when I saw them IRL at the Montreal car show. I changed my mind when I saw the pictures of the SS M3 with the silver wheels at the DC show. Hopefully we will get pictures of an M4 with the black wheels and with the silver wheels to have a good idea how they will respectively look before I need to finalize my order. The cartoons in the configurators are just not representative enough.
Have not seen them, but going with the black version at this point. I think the contrast will be good.
Edit: changed to silver wheels after seeing the following pics.

Thanks - this is what I'm having built soon (except w/ SO interior) so nice to see good photos. Making me think about switching back to the silver wheels, though.

Edit: did switch back to silver wheels.

Silverstone II?

People keep calling it "II", but the order guides etc. just call it Silverstone? Is this really different than the original version?

Yea, I've been wondering the same. Wasn't so into the Silverstone on the previous generation - had a bit of a greenish/teal hue to the silver. But if "II" is more of a purish silver, then I'd be more down.

Unfortunately, it's one of those colors that we'll have to see in real life to accurately judge for ourselves.

Ok, that might be my exact choice. SS w/full black leather. Might opt for the dark wheels though.

Very nice!! I can't do the same color again though, because if someone I haven't seen in a while comes over and says "you still have the same car" I'll freaking lose it.

One reason I went with SS instead of the Alpine I have now!

Some call it silverstone ii because there was original silverstone available until early 2000 (like e39 era). Original had much more blue hue than the new one.

Silverstone on F80/F82 is exactly same as silverstone on e90/e92.
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 would prefer or "warmer" silver, but going with this without really seeing it, so hope I like it!

I would really like to see a Silverstone M4 with the black wheels.

I just came back from my dealer where they just received their first M4. It is AW with black wheels. Those black wheels look awesome in real life and I think they fit the M4 better. I keep going back and forth between the black and grey wheels, I can't make up my mind .

Ditto. I'm not a fan of the black wheels from the photos, but I need to see them in person. I think black wheels w/ SS will be amazing. Which may be my exact order.

All black would be good, but the black/satin aluminum spokes on this version seem a little busy to me.

Have you seen the black wheels in real life?

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.
