Alloy Wheel touchup paint

Guys
Had a minor ding on a rim. Have repaired the ding with some chemical metal and it's a good hard fix but can't find a colour to match the original.

BMW don't do a touchup for wheels, which, given how prone they are to damage is really surprising.

My last car wheels tied in nicely with Vauxhall Star Silver!

Anyone found a colour that works?

Thx

Not used it personally, but I think people have had success with paints from a company called Wurth...

Someone did a DIY guide with pictures...

The Wurth paints provide a perfect match.

I did a write up on a refurb back in the spring using these paints.
