    I have recently purchased a rear lip spoiler for my coupe in AlpineWhite3.

    However the colour match is so different that Im not even going to put the thing on my car as it looks stupid.
    As my car is only a few years old, I wouldnt have thought the match would be so bad? The colour doesnt even match the door sills (less weather exposed).

    I bought this from SSDD, so before I go back to them to see if they can do anything about it - is it usual to be so far out?
    If I went to BMW, would they use the paint code or try and match the colour to the car by adjusting the mix?

    Cheers

    I would send it back where you got it from. Ask them to give you another but include the VIN Number for a correct colour match. If it comes back the same, even with including the VIN Number, then there is something wrong with their paint mixing and matching system. Hope this helps.
