Blue is my fav color, and who doesnt like candy lol! I will get some pics up soon hopefully, but it is snowing every other day just enough to get the roads wet and dirty up the paint...plus its dark here by 5pm, and well, you know...

At least yours isnt too light (or maybe you think it is?). Our dealer did the same thing, trying to match it perfectly, but I told them that is impossible as there are rubberizers in the paint for plastic applications. At most angles ours is too light after the accident repair (from the factory the plastic bumper covers are too dark at certain angles), but we cant get it repainted because the insurance co.. says that its the same color and there are no actual defects in the paint job..

BTW NICE combo, the wheels look great on Blue Candy...Now just tint those windows to match the wheel look completely!
