<font face="Comic Sans MS">for what it's worth - i've had a few fiats, used and new, and never yet had bumpers which match the car properly so i think it's a feature [xx(]

is it cos they do them at the dealer afterwards i wonder?</font id="Comic Sans MS">

When you spray plastic it is never going to look quite the same as when you spray on metal.

It should only be noticable up close though, and it shouldn't be obviously noticable.
