Mineral Grey Paint

Hey guys,

Was wondering what everyone's experience is with repainting the MG color. I once had a car scratch my front bumper so I sent it in to get the bumper resprayed but the result came out darker in paint despite being color matched and mixed by machine.

I went to other shops and they all said they wouldn't be able to do a better job matching the color due to "new paints being water-based"and shops in Lebanon apparently not having the facilities to paint that type of paint.

I made sure they used PPG's paint and clear coat for the whole job.

So I just wanna see other people's experience with this issues so I know whether I can fix it or just live with it.

Thanks

I would usually give them my gas door so they can match it to the car correctly.
