Had my front bumper cover repainted under warranty. There was a significant difference (sterling grey). Not much better after the re-paint, though. You'd think by now they would have figured out how to have colours match better after this many years of painting plastics! Remember Saturn; parts came from all over and those colours seemed to be pretty much the same. Had the bumper cover on our Lexus RX repainted and they were able to match it 100%, and that's after 3 years. So, maybe it's a quality (read $) thing?
