Mineral Grey Metallic paint stick?

So some asshole just keyed my car, left a small scratch on my driver's side mirror housing. Not too obvious, but definitely scratched off paint. I'm looking at the paint sticks available on BMWNA, and can't seem to find Mineral Grey Metallic among the listed colors. Anyone know what's up with that?

Edit: Called my service department, they confirmed it's not actually on the website yet, so far has to be custom ordered. Pretty much same price as the other silver/grey ones, takes 2 days from ordering for the shop to get it. For those interested, color code for Mineral Grey Metallic is B39, you can also find it on Amazon/Ebay, but not any cheaper.

Manhattan, and yeah unfortunately I do. The public garages here are like $400+ a month (almost as much as my financing!), and the parking attendants are more likely to ding or scratch my car parking it than anyone on the street.

Yeah it has to be custom ordered so far from your dealership.

Mineral Grey Metallic code is B39, stick is about $30, same price as metallic paint sticks of other colors. For me they placed the order on a Tuesday, I went and picked it up Friday.

Well if you got either the facilities or money to polish every little nick and scratch on your car, then by all means it's better than a touchup stick. Personally, I'd rather use a $30 touchup stick on minor scratches than pay my dealership $80/hr to re-do entire panels.

No pics yet, but so far works fine on the small stuff. You can still notice it if you put your nose up to it, but much better than leaving it alone.
