  1. Poor colour match- misano blue

    Alfa Giulia
    My veloce was reversed into whilst parked at a station last week, big scuff, paint off and some severe cracking of paint where the bumper had been pushed in. Took it straight to body shop with impressive reputation and picked it up today. It looks like they've not colour matched well at all...
