A good bodyshop should have a paint-code guide for most car manufacturers, and they should be able to get the appropriate paint.
When I had my front add-on spoiler painted to match, the bodyshop brought out a really thick folder and flipped thru' the pages, then found my color code and the OEM paint brand.

^^ I am certain BMW uses different OEMs to source the paint. Your paint code is in one o fthe shock pillars under the hood. Just provide that to a reputable shop, and they will be able to get it for you. If you really want to get the paint yourself, use that paintcode and www.paintscratch.com.
