They have several kinds of black. It seems that you have a cosmos black metallic paint. BMW uses three-digit codes for their paint. Is there any three digit code on the strut tower of your car? If not, maybe where you are located, they use the llong codes and that may be what you would have to provide to the supplier.

Here is a list of BMW paint codes: http://www.bimmerwerkz.com/forum/gen...des-10921.html

According to that list, you are looking for a paint with code 303.
