     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The 2016 BMW beta configurator is out. I ripped this pic from it to show an example of the newly available 436M Orbit Grey wheels (21U).

Pretty dark grey to me. It's black. Is that a $0 option?

Yes, $0 option. If you google bmw orbit grey wheels, you'll find several wheels that are two tone. The configurator makes them look almost black, but the wheels I've seen at the dealer (two tone variety) are like a charcoal metallic.

This is also an Orbit Grey 19" 442M from a 2015 435i Gran Coupe M-Sport.

Wish they looked like that. I don't particularly like the look of the stock M235i wheel in any color.

It's a very hard color to digitalize apparently.

I don't care for them personally.. and personally, I think the regular wheels are too dark too

I'm wondering how they will look with the estoril blue. Personally, I feel the current wheel color just has a bit of a dirty look to them when combined with EBII. Having less of a gun metal and more of a grey/black might be a better overall appearance. I'm looking forward to seeing some real pics!

Go for the contrast. Lighter wheels on darker color cars and darker wheels on lighter color cars.
Estoril is right on the border, I would not do orbit. I don't like either color on estoril actually (I like ligher silver on estoril).
