Need some explanation fellas...please help me!!!

Hi. I am currently poaching after a new front bumper and think of getting it resprayed to my car colour. But I am not sure whether my car is jet black(JB), black sapphire metallic(BSM) or matt black (I think matt black is def not but worth mentioning just in case). I am away from my car as it's at home in Manchester. Won't go back home for the next 2 weeks I guess so really dont have a clue how to check the paint code. Need to decide on the colour code ASAP.

Some infos: I did remember the last time it was washed, I did see some sparkles on the paint. It's not like pure black like the black hole! It looks shining when it is seen closely. People were saying that its hard to diff between JB and BSM, so I am not sure which one. Here is a picture just for reference in case someone here could recognize.

Also, I am now dealing with a guy for his angel eye headlights. The more I ask him, the more I am confused and he told me to do some research first before buying. He said his angel eye headlights came off an 11 plate e90 (so it must be for LCI,right?). He has used them in his 06 plate e90 pre LCI and said they fit well too so he was sure they will fit my 55 plate 320i. he told me that was the standard halogen angel eye came from factory on 11 plate e90. The reason he is selling them is because he is upgrading to dynamic xenon headlight (don't know what is this???). Now, I am confused. is the headlights he is selling just the same as my stock SE headlight which has been retrofit to accommodate angel eye ring? or is it the same angel eye most of people here are running on? what's dynamic xenon then? can someone pleaseeee explain to this dumb man what are the possible options for modding angel eyes for e90 pre LCI? really really appreciate your kindness.
