Carbon Fiber on black car

Iím finalizing an order and wanted to get some feed back... thinking of upgrading the front grilles, side vents, rear spoiler, and rear diffuser to carbon fiber. Will it be washed out given itís on a black car? Think itís too much?? Thanks in advance for your thoughts

I would keep the front grilles and side vents black and do the Rear Spoiler and diffuser in CF. It's not going to pop the way it would on lighter colors but certainly looks better.

I owned a BSM F10 M5 and went this route and it looked very clean and elegant but with a bit of edge.

Hope this helps.

Maybe this helps, imo keep it clean and use CF only where it changes the shape of a car. Keep in mind headlights are tinted.

Black m5 with splitter, sideblades and pro spoiler looked way better than stock "competition" - it looked naked next to "black" one (It's not really black )

Appreciate the feedback, I realize this is subjective to individual taste, but welcome others opinions; it’s definitely an expensive upgrade

I have a black comp and held off, I just don't think it pops as much but I totally agree that if it changes the shape then its worth it, the colour being so close but so different at the same time would probably set off my OCD when looking at the car.

Placing an order for a black m5 comp and I was debating the same issue. I had decided on the carbon fiber M pro spoiler, diffuser and side grilles when I came across this video in which a guy from M performance parts mentioned that the M pro spoiler and front splitters should be installed together due to aerodynamic changes on the car. I'm not a huge fan of the splitter on a black car so I am currently back to no carbon fiber add-ons. Anyone else here have the same info? I don't believe the standard carbon fiber spoiler add-on results in the same issue since it is roughly the same size as the OEM spoiler.


He mentions the combo of M pro spoiler and front splitters at 8:45

Bringing this thread back to life. I am currently in this boat as well. I want to be fairly minimal with the changes but at the same time want to give my BSM a little more life. Thinking side skirts, at minimum. None of the spoilers are winning me over but at the same time there have not been many pictures on a BSM to ponder over.. anyone have any more pics of BSM with CF bits?
