I know that between different paint brands there can be a colour difference.

If they blend the paint then your clear coat wont match the rest of the car in terms of orange peel. Also they will probably just mask the fenders and hood, that will leave a tape mark and in my opinion greatly depreciate the value of your car.

I couldn't stand the reflectors on the factory bumper so i ordered a euro bumper from iND pre painted by them and the match was 95% without them even seeing the car. My car is SGM also hard to match. I'd ship the bumper to iND if there are no other body shops in your area.
