Unfortunately, we don't have a touch pen for hyperblacks because of the hyperblacks are a multi-stage finish. However, we are looking into creating the pen.

What about getting the wheels refinished due to curb rash, is there anything you have that you could get me to match? I know its a black primer with a silver coat, and then a clear coat (because i can see the layers on the rash ), is the silver coat just the regular BMW silver?

The sliver coat is different from the BMW silver. The best way would be to take the wheel to a wheel repair shop and see if they do a custom match.
