Just heard from the dealership. Had them look over the car to see if there was any damage repaired pre delivery. This was a dealer trade and did have what felt similar to overspray on the horizontal surfaces on delivery (which they cleaned up). Kept the car overnight and took it to their off site body shop, hoisted it and did a thorough check; all is new underneath. No sign of clips changed, damage, masking oir the like. They all concur the colour of the bumper cover is a shade darker. So, will be having that repainted in the next little while.
Note the rear bumpe cover, also plastic, matches perfectly. Seems I just got one that was a mismatch for any number of potential reasons.
At least they are looking after me/it. Very impressed with their responses.
