Gunmetal CSLs paint code?

Hi, I have just got my 19 CSL's painted satin black (pictures to follow soon) not happy with them at all, just dont think they look right againest the SG, was thinking of going Gunmetal instead...any suggestions?
I had thought of 'BMW steel grey' or 'S2000 Moonrock grey'. Are ther any paint codes out ther that would look good as 'gunmetal'? Think I would still be using a satin finish to avoid the metallic car look.

Open to ideas and suggestions??

No disrespect but I seriously wouldn't want grey wheels on space grey I would recommend abit of contrast as it wouldnt look as good. But each man to they own I suppose.

Thanks for your comments, I just want something abit less 'bling', the silver wheels stand out alot againest the SG so wanted to tone them down...black was just a tad too much

I'm getting mine re-coloured if and when I put my winters on.
Have you thought about the middle ground ie black chrome or a smoked effect.
I looked at this site and it gave me a few possible ideas...
