    Its worse in the flesh and that is overcast as well. Receipt says OEM paint code I know paint fades but its a bit noticeable and I managed to get the front splitter to match using a £5.99 can!

    It's more noticeable from the rear than the side. Could it be that the paint will settle after a wash or two perhaps? Is it just the 'new paint' effect? If it's the wrong one, and you gave them the paint code from the door pillar, can't you go back and tell them they need to redo it? If they've used the wrong colour then they're at fault if you gave them the correct information.
