Painted kidney grills

Guys,

searched but didn't find an answer to my question, I have a lci black sapphire metallic e90 and want to change to some sort of black grill. I like the gloss look, when painting should I find black sapphire metallic paint or jet black? Thoughts? Probably just gonna paint the outer rim.

Try Automotive Touchup. I have bought from them before and the paint matches flawlessly. You can get a 12 oz rattle can for about $20.
