Well the idea, imo, is to not have them body matched. As by doing so, they act like "eyelids" and change the shape of the headlights. The intended effect is to provide the "cleared headlights" look while maintaining the overall shape. I mean ideally, doing a complete swap is the best option, but for the price, I think these look pretty decent.
As I mentioned before, there are plenty of people in the e90 community that opt for silver cf, etched glass ambergones. I'm not saying just because they do it that it looks good, but looking at varous pics, it does change the look of the headlights for the better.
