i know there is no 100% color code for this, but anything that come very very close will do.

I am sure if you get in touch with a reputable body shop or any shop that does professional wheel re-finishing will be able to help you out. Emailing BBS also might be worth it. Good luck

+1

Since you are having to do them all, just bring them one of the wheels and I'm sure they could find a way to color match it.

Isn't DBK a multiple step process like chrome shadow?

E39 M5 and E46 M3 18" wheels were chrome shadow, and when I damaged them once, they perfectly colour matched at the local BMW repair shop. It's the case of taking the wheel and showing them.
