Spray or replace?

I need to replace some panels on an 05 Alfa GT in metallic blue.
If I managed to find replacements in the same colour how good is the colour match going to be? If it's not likely to be perfect I'll have to respray anyway.

You can find that paint batches can change over time and what should match a paint code does not, however sometimes just a really good power polish can help to blend the panels. Hope this helps a little.

There are so many differences on how a car is treated or lasts during it's life that it's unlikely you will ever find an exact match, but you will probably get close enough if they are the same colour.... but if you do find panels that are the same colour and are close enough, you could save a few bob.
