Thanks for the reply Matt. I did a quick Google image search for 'swp wrx', and see a similar mismatch on other cars. HERE'S one example. Notice how you don't see it until you LOOK for it? It really seems to depend on how the light hits it.

I have no idea how experienced their paint shop is, so I think I may just leave well enough alone. With my luck, it will end up looking WORSE! I probably would have never noticed it if my nephew didn't point it out. Of course, now I can't HELP but notice it...

The bumper is already collecting 90MPH bug strikes, and the damned birds have gone out of their way to 'christen' every other square inch of paint, so this minor flaw will be forgotten soon enough.

Maybe I should just plasti-dip the fogs black... Then they REALLY won't match the bumper!...
