Is he doing the engine bay door sills, etc... at the same price with the different colour? If not might change peoples opinions I guess. As for me, I got mine repainted Jet Black (orig colour), becuase when I think of BMW I think black, though I do love all the colour options. I prefer Estoril to Avus though.

Problem with black though is its such a pain to keep clean eh.

or you can go with the custom color I'm doing for my upcoming project car......... but that color is a secret. ... usually I'd say black, butwith the styling of your car, go with the blue.

if you're leaning more on "racing" theme for your car, then blue would be bad ass. but if you're more into elegance, nice and clean look then black would be perfect. just my $0.02.
