    While buying the car I have painted the Brake Callipers and mirrors to red color. I also have projector hedlight with RED angel eye.

    This Red and White combination looks damn good :happy:

    Friends, The total bill has come to 45000 including 15000 insurance cover, pretty fat and i had to foot 30k from hand. Shall share details and pics shortly.

    Some info from Body Shop guys: Denting, tinkering repairing and painting costs per door have increased drastically, for e.g. 4800 rupees per door to 6300.

    Apologies for late replies. Since job is done in FASS inhouse bodyshop, there is peace of mind when it comes to color matching. I am yet to get the full body polish done, which i planned to get done over the weekend.

    For your question, there is no visual mismatch that is identifiable glaringly. i think your question would hold good if the match is perfect once the 3m polish is done. pl standby shall post pics after polishing.

    The active grille to some extent gels with the white expanse but the fog lamps are still ash colored. Not finding time to get it done as i took delivery in an urgency to attend to personal work.
