Default Recommend a body shop on Long Island please.

Can anyone recommend a good body shop on Long Island that can paint match a 2019 STI (CWP) rear bumper to the car? I know this color is tough to match. Preferably in the Nassau county area, but west Suffolk isn't out of the question. Not Queens or Brooklyn though.

I had a shop near me try and failed twice. First time was way off, second try was better, but still a little off. I guess I can live with it but I'd rather try and get a closer match and these guys obviously can't do it.

The front bumper is a little off from the factory also, but less noticeable.

Not sure how off you say the front bumper is to the body. I would suggest you go by a dealer to see if that is normal as pearls can look the slightest bit off between plastic and metal painted surfaces. Lighting is key here... However, if your looking for a good A/B shop check out Gabe and crew @ http://www.impressiveautobody.com/ or on IG as well.

Thanks for the reply stilverbullet. I was thinking to do that as well, not many have a WRX in pearl white anymore but I can try to find something.

It's weird because during the day the rear bumper I had painted is a few shades lighter but when I take a picture at night, it's shades darker.
