Exclamation Alloys RAL code & Windscreen seal

Hi all,

I have a F10 530d M Sport with 19 inch style 351M alloys. Front nearside has kerbing. BMW want 100 to break the tyre seal, sand and repaint.

Alloy Wheel Solutions Hereford will sandblast and powder coat four 17 inch alloys for 220. ( a little more for 19 inch) I had a secondhand winter wheel set done for my son's M140i. Brilliant job, better than new. However, the owner James Bond (that's correct) only stocks a dozen or so powder coating colours. I would like to keep the same colour on my alloys as they look good against Sophisto grey. He can match the colour if I can find the RAL code. Does anyone have any idea what the code is?

Secondly I had a windscreen replacement within the last 2 years (National windscreens). There is a rubber seal that sits on top of the windscreen and lies against the roof. It had become loose at the centre and dropped. Is it a seal to stop water entering or cosmetic/wind reduction seal? I don't think it was attached to the screen but not sure!
I had my second oil service today and BMW inform me that the seal costs 25 but would require the windscreen to be removed to fit it. They have NO idea what the purpose of the seal is,
