    the front bumper is a different color than the rest of the car?

    My color is way off.

    the front/rear and I believe mirrors are painted at vendor and then mounted to car, so yes, there could be a little or a lot of variance.
    Not uncommon. It is also possible the car was damaged somewhere along the way and sent out
    for replacement/repair

    Yes, my front and rear are a shade off. That is very common. Nothing to worry about. It's not just Challengers but many cars. Some colors are more noticeable than others.

    It's because of the different materials being painted on as much as it's who/where they're doing the painting at.

    Same applied to my 2007 Daytona. There's no way to match the paint perfectly on different materials. Any paint guru worth their weight in salt would tell you the same thing

    I'd say take it to the dealer and make them match it. But keep in mind, different base materials display the subtleties in shades differently because they are different colors underneath. But the dealer could be made to make it match if its noticeable I would think?

    The dealer does not have a paint shop. Not to many paint shops I want touching my Hellcat.

    Start looking around at all vehicles with the plastic nosecones. They don't match and it is especially noticeable in different lighting. My 09 TorRed looks like a great match in full sun but in my fluorescent lighted garage it looks like a completely different color from the body.

    Agreed, mine is noticeably off. Also, I have bubbling paint in two areas on my core support from the factory, anyone else notice this on their vehicle. Another challenger at the lot had identical bubbling..

    It sure isn't great. It is present in both of those brackets on the core support. another sublime green scat pack Charger had the same as I mentioned. It looks like some cleaner etc was stuck between the two parts and was painted over. I am curious to know if it is only a sublime thing or if owners of other colors have the same bubbling.
