best Anthracite wheel color with VO?

Hey all, I trust your opinions....looking for a good paint code and samples for Anthracite paint for my wheels....I was black matte for 2 years and now want to do Anthracite but don't have any good paint codes to give to the shop....

Any suggestions as to the best looking Anthracite for a VO 1M?

thanks in advance.

I don't know the colour code but I'm going with the BBS Titanium finish they do on the CH-Rs...



I think it looks F-ing Awesome.

19" BBS CH-R Satin Titanium (front: 19x9 ET 20 | rear: 19x10.5 ET 25): I got these because - as we know - our 359 M Y-spoke Competition wheels are only available in silver (1M) and black (E92 M3 GTS). Too bad BMW never offered these wheels in gunmetal too. To my eyes, the BBS CH-R gunmetal wheels are (still) the best alternative to the unbeatable 1M stock wheels: elegant and sportive + suits well the VO color.

Last Summer Rikx1M has seen these in the flesh on my 1M.

My wheels are not Anthracite, but more like a Metalic Gun Metal Grey..
About 2 shades lighter than the OEM diffuser.

Colour code is GLASURIT HIGH-SOLID 2K-NFZ DECKLACK SERIE 18 B, 900 Schwarz.

1 x coat primer plus 3 x coat two pack enamel.
