Ha ha ha my guess is a salesman took it for a ride and hit something.

Either repainted due to damage, or there are some damn blind aussies.

If it was originally painted in the factory in Ausie land, then it would probably be near impossible to match the colour using American paints.

Think about the implications for future touch-ups or fender benders.

totally false.. no matter where the car was painted the color can still be matched here..

this is a case ot the car being Damaged (test drive, lot damage, or freight damage) and and EXTREAMLY bad paint match on the repaint.. I can tell you with 99% certanty, that that car now has a matching bumper.

It just blows my mind that the dealer would take and post those pic'* befor the car got its repaint... I know at my shop if Me or the other paiter have a color 1/4 that bad we have to repaint it, befor the car gets put back together.

P.*., Hans. GM is not going out of bussness

Thanks for correcting me on that Peter. I was waiting for you to speak up.



So even the new water based paints will match with older laquer or acrylic paints

My dad bought a new Silver Impala a couple years ago, and the rear passenger door was the same way, a little darker than the rest of the car. Makes me wonder what happened to it . I think he finally got it repainted.
