Nice choice!! (I also went for the Aspen White!) Welcome ;-)
Thanks bud. Question, does your rear bumper match the rest of your car's body? I bought mine new so I know it hasn't had any accidents, but mine really isn't even close, even after considering that the bumper is plastic and the body is metal.

the color should only be slightly off, like maybe half a shade...if it is noticeably more off color than that, then you probably got a car that was damaged during shipping to the dealer and the dealer just had it repainted in which case they are not required to disclose that to you if it was minor cosmetic damage, but just keep in mind that even if you bought it new doesnt mean that the dealer couldn't have had a little accident that they tried to cover up.

These photos are awful butttttt.




I feel like that's more than half a shade, and the bumper fits better on the passenger side than the driver's side.

oh hell no...i would definitely talk to that dealer cause that is not matched at all...you can tell it's a more flat white than it is pearl as the main body of the car has more metal flake in it to give it that sparkling appearance...i would be flipping out at your dealer right now and demanding an explanation and a repaint in the proper paint code :mad5:

Is it too late being that I've had the car nearly a month? Will they say I've had an accident or something?

it's worth a shot at least, i wouldnt say that's the response you would get though....most they can do is just refuse to do anything about it. definitely would get it on the books though or at least try and ask for an explanation as to why your paint is so far off from the rest of the car. is the front bumper the same way or does it match a lot better?

I made a service appoint for Friday, I'll be calm about it and hopefully get an answer or something done to take care of it.

The front matches much better:

As you can see it isn't exactly the same as the body, but its plastic. That is definitely well within tolerance as matching IMO. The rear is not.
