There was a thread (forgot which one) about an Individual color car where one of the posters said matching up the paint color on such a car was going to be a b*tch, which is why [said] poster said he would never go Individual...

I could ask my dealer.... but they know less than me(!) about the car...
Any dark color will show swirls the same, Jerez or Azurite will be no better than Jet black.

As for matching the color, a good shop like IND can do it no problem. IND painted pieces and shipped them to me and they were a perfect match! Please realize I am extremely anal about paint and I also used to think that paint was impossible to match..... IND proved me wrong on that.
