Cool Considering wrapping my car...what color?

My fellow 5 series members I'm going over the idea of wrapping my car but wanted to know from you guys what are several color options that you think would go well with my Matte Antique Bronze finish AGL21's wheels? I was thinking of maybe like a Matte Nardo Gray, BattleShip Gray, Matte Black? or maybe a Satin finish of some kind? I've scoured the internet for cars with my wheel color but eh... give me some ideas or colors you may know that you think will look good...appreciate it

I like a matte red color or in that range...like a red wine...color goes great with your wheels...but then you have your interior to match it up with also so maybe a matte Monte Carlo blue since you have dark interior

Nice! is that what that color is called frozen glacial white? where can I buy that wrap color from? I always thought Matte/Frozen are the same colors? also some of the Frozen colors i'm finding are called for example Frozen Satin Red Chrome which I don't want chrome or is that just how you get the Frozen look?

dunno that red is a bit too loud....but thats my opinion

the white or even a grey is understated...but that could also be boring...

Very light olive or british racing green metallic, like on Aston Martin. Do that, be original. Your golden brakes and rims gonna suit so well. All these matte paints are sh.t to anyone except a handful of BMW diehards. Trust me. Aston Green or rather, PTS Racing Green Metallic 5019D (Y68; also known as DBR9 Racing Green) . If it sucks / rewrap it some matte color and be like everyone else hehe.

If you go battleship gray, go gloss black rims.

Something like this:


Or this:
