IMO they do not match, the bumber is darker. if you are going to Whitehall this Saturday maybe i can see it in person. I can also see if I can borrow a portable spectrophotometer from work and we can actually measure the difference

maybe just your bumper got resprayed during QC? :unsure:
It was Delayed for a bit, but less than a month total, I think. Looking at other cars, even different colors, it seems like the color difference is somewhat common. Not sure if it's actual difference, or perceived.

Sounds good
Here are 3 in a row with different shades at that seam. I think it might be the angle the panels join together.

Common problem due to painting metal verses plastic or urethane. Been that way for years, but the processes have gotten better. There's usually some difference depending on the color. Yours looks a bit too off IMO.

Your car looks awesome. That Camrys body shop needs a lesson on matching paint.
Thanks :)
I did wonder did he go to the junk yard to find one, as if someone paid money for someone to do that 'professionally' they'd be a bit miffed.

I got one.
I Just wanted to encourage those of you who are still waiting. My 2022 order was waiting for an allocation and would’ve been a 2023 when it ever it came up. My Salesperson/Dealership contacted me when this CT5V BLACKWING arrived at their dealership 1st week of July and asked me if I would be interested in this one at MSRP. Auto, non-CF black upgraded seats, sunroof, PDR, Midnight Wheels, Parking assist Pkg. Driver’s assist Package, and Sueded MicroFiber Steering Wheel.
The catch…
The car was scheduled to go to a Cadillac sponsored event, then it would be available for purchase. The differences between this car and the one I placed an order for back in October 2021 is the color of the Calipers (I ordered red and these are black) and the price increase of the 2023 So, I decided to pull the trigger. The event was scheduled for the last week of July and the car arrived back at the dealership Tuesday August 2 with 35 miles on it. Once the car arrived at the dealership, I secured financing through my CU and scheduled to pick it up today. The car looks even better in person and I traded my 2017 Charger SRT Hellcat w/20.6k miles in for the Blackwing.
