I shot it with a Canon 50D & 70-200 F/4L IS. The red streaks are taillights.

I just happen to be a photographer on the side; my degree is in digital photography as well.

Its good, not perfect.

In most lights it looks like a good match, only occasionally does it look lighter. At this point I'm done with going back to the body shop. Its at a point where I'm comfortable with it.

Not the best response I know.

I feel the same...it catches my eye every now and then, and I noticed a little pitting in the clear on the hatch, but yeah, at this point I'm just comfortable as long it doesnt start to come off LOL!!
