Getting paint, emblem, and vinyl color to match

I have a 2006 330xi and i have already powdercoated the rims gloss black and my car is black i plan to have it completely black, but i thought it would be cool to get the m3 mirrors and wrap them in vinyl and i want that color to match emblems i would get and i want to pain my calipers the same color.. does anyone know of where i should get the vinyl and if there are any brake paints that would match the color of the vinyl and where i would get emblems

Why don't you get the m3 mirrors painted BSM?

You can also get emblem overlays that are painted BSM.

It's going to be tough to find paint that matches vinyl 100%, especially considering you want a vibrant color. 3M scotchprint 1080 is legit vinyl, can't help you too much in the paint department.

you could pick your vinyl first for your emblems and mirrors.. and then take the vinyl to a paint shop to match it and paint your calipers for you.... it wont be cheap though.
