one question the bumper has a clear bra right? that maybe the cause of the colors not matching. clear bra on a white car usually changes the color.

forgot to mention that. I had clear bra on my hood and everywhere else on the front from a couple of months ago. I acutally took my car to where they put the clear bra and it was the same people that put mine on, they said when they got the car they started laughing because of the missmatch color and said it wasnt the bra.

Nope, they said they got the right one but they could never get the same "color" I don't know why they thought it was acceptable

Wow, that's not even close. I don't blame you for being furious. It literally does look like 2 completely different colors.

ok i painted for years before i got into the Army and yes they may have the correct paint code, but there are diff variances with each code (more pearl, bluer, less metallic, etc) so they just got the wrong variance and need to fix it..dont accept it bc its BS and the painter/owner knows better..i hope this helps clarify...also ive learned from the years white is a very hard color to match along with plastic bumper covers have an effect on colors, but they know better than that with such a nice car

I shouldn't have read this post. Now I'm angry too. Not sure how you kept from actually punching the guy in the face. Good luck getting this sorted out man.
