If you take a part to a dedicated auto paint store they should be able to match the color and put it in a spray can for you. It won't be cheap.

Go to a model/hobby store (not Hobby Lobby, a real hobby store.) There are 100's of colors and shades. I found that Panzer grey matched the plastic on my dashboard to a tee.

paint matching is too expensive, and hobby paint will not stand up to constant touching. It gets worn and shiny.

I bought some SEM silver, but it's too dark. This stuff is made for car interiors and hold up to constant use.

I found the Satin Black paint for the interior at FinishMaster here in Daytona Beach (nice thing is they have 1,700 stores across the country) the paint is called SEM Color Coat. It is made for plastic and they carry it in various colors in a 12 oz. spray can. The Satin Black I needed for the door panel was $13.99+tx.
