Titanium Silver (color 354) paint subsitute?

Folks, I'm trying to find an equivalent paint spray (closest match) to the 354 color...eLuka has a very small spray, I would need about 3 x as much, but don't feel like paying $100 for the sum...VW, Nissan, GM, Honda all come in big spray sizes and go for ~ $10-15/can...with so many silver shades out there, I was wondering if anyone knows of an equivalent color (closest match) that I can use instead of the BMW 354 (I have to paint the side lower carbon fiber rail, so shade differences won't be that visible)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx

Problem solved

Problem solved with a local paint shop : you give them the color code (or VIN) & they'll mix a 16 oz. aerosol can for you for $30 (USD 27)

Contacted 2 dealers but they only carry sticks (for $20) and won't sell you paint, nor put it into an aerosol can.

Next step: see how well it matches

What will you be working on? Getting paint to match is not only a matter of getting it mixed correctly, but also of how you apply it, since your paint is a few years old and you will prolly be getting showroom spec paint. Oh, I see you mention your painting a rather inconspicuous place. You should be fine.

By the way, could we get some pictures of this ride of yours? MAybe even before and after?
