touch up paint for oem gloss black window trim

Hey guys, I have the e90 with M-sport package which includes the black exterior gloss trim. Recently I found a huge scratch on one of the trim pieces. It will cost some money to replace it so I was thinking I can use some touch up paint to cover it up. Does anyone know the paint code for this specific color? Much appreciated.

It's black plastic, there is no paint code.

I don't think it's plastic. My issue is there are little spots on the very edges of the trim where the paint has come off and it is silver underneath so I believe it is metal. I have been wondering how much it would cost just to get the trim repainted.

Vinyl would be the cheaper alternative compared to paint. A ton of guys have done it on this forum to cover up their chrome trim.

Guys, I'm not looking to put vinyl or plastic dip the piece. This would throw off my entire gloss black trim which came stock on the car. In addition, finding a replacement part would cost more than the touch up paint. Just wanted something to cover some up chips.

There is no specific touch up paint for it.

I wouldn't call $183.24 per side cheap.
