Wheel paint

When I was looking at the pictures of the 1M that IND prepared I thought the HR wheels look great basically because of the paint finish on them. Then, I remembered a BMW wheel that I admired at the time, the E39 M5's style 65 "shadow line" wheels, here there is a link with photos:

This paint I think is the exact finish that I would like to see on my VO 1M's stock wheels. Anyone here has an idea, can I just go and ask a BMW service or a speciality shop to paint my wheels on this exact shade?

That's a gunmetal grey finish.

I highly recommend POWDER COATING the wheels instead of painting them. The paint will not last very long and is very prone to chipping. Powder coating will last a lot longer and will stand up to chips, dent's and dings a lot better.
