When I'm spending $$ to buy a fun car I am always qualifying the seller as well as the car.
It's not a huge deal on 99% of cars, but if you're trying to get $60k+ for a 1/1 Individual Car, the paint work certainly has a jab at the long term value.

Nothing wrong with the car and if the buyer likes the color then I'm sure they'll be pleased, but obviously color matching on a difficult metallic color can be a reason for concern for anyone who's ever bought a poorly matched car. It looks great in the pictures, but again those have clearly been edited for drama more than uniformity or clarity.
