M3 GTS wheels color code?

Merry Christmas everyone!

I was wondering if anyone knew the colour code to reproduce the M3 GTS satin black finish?

I have the silver ZCP wheels but I'd like to powdercoat them for next spring. Anyone find out what the color code is?

Thanks!

Edit: If not the exact color code, has anyone tried matching the satin black with painted aluminum samples?

Just have them powder coated satin black. Any good powder coat place can do this.

Thanks, so if I ask for a satin black finish and park my car next to another M3 with the original GTS wheels, will there be a noticeable difference in colour? I figured there would be hundreds of different shades available. I want to have an OEM look.

LOL satin is satin bro. You're over analyzing it. As long as its not matte you shouldn't be able to tell the difference. If its gonna bother you that much just get an OEM set and sell yours.
