Mine has one shade on all sheet metal parts and another one on the bumpers and a third shade on the boot lid, which differs most.

I had all the plastics colour coded and they can seem a different shade depending on the light but apart from that mine all looks the same :thumbup:

Always found this with that paint, not only the panels look different. But sometimes the whole car is a completely different colour under different levels of light. Still an amazing colour though !

He's traded his car in for a VAG now, traitor. Lol Was tempted to buy it off him being local but due to time constraints, wouldnt have chance to strip mine of mods.

for peace of mind take it to a local detailer and ask him to take some paint depth readings, this will tell you if any panels has seen more paint. if you were closer i could run the gauge over it for you

It's a 5 door with a type S spoiler. Can't miss it as it's the only one with halo DRL's.
