Default Windblue owner - or anybody opinion-Help

Can anybody take a close-up pictures of WBlue Car between the front Bumper and Fender any side? I took my bumper for paint but it seems the it does not match and the dealer told me that bumper and the rest of the car doesn't match. I have to take back the car to the dealer 3X cuz not matching the color. I uploaded the pictures. Can anyone tell if this match or I am trying to be picky?
Thanks[/align]

it's just about impossible to get a perfect match when you just spray one panel, to get the bumper to match the fenders to where you can't tell you would have to blend it into the fenders, but looking at your pics it looks like thet did a pretty good job.

Thanks. The dealer told that they blend the color to the fender because they also replaced my fender cuz of fender accidents. There's some scratches on the bumper so I have them replaced the bumper for GT/CS , save some money on painting since they going to re-paint the whole bumper.

Not really a close up, but mine is the same color...no variation.

Can't really tell from pics but that color (silver tones in particular and metallics are generally the toughest to match; especialy over urethane panel to metal panel) It may even get closer over a bit of time. I would say you are probabaly as close to where you are going to get it; like you I seek pefection but that can just drive you crazy. Go back to enjoying the car, others will not notice a match issue and unfortunately we all willlikey face future reapir/touchups down the road. It's a car and hazards are everywhere unless it's a trailer queen and what fun is that. best of luck with this.

Its difficult to tell from a photo and especially on the computer screen. It looks pretty good on screen though. I do notice that they did not align the hood with the fender though. Have them fix that.
