How hard is Daytona gray pearl to match?

Hi, I'm going to be buying the Xenonz, front rs5 bumper and I saw that their now offering a painting service for about $375 extra. I'm debating if this is a good way to save some money and the trip to the body shop on arrival of the bumper. I had gotten a quote from a reputable high end body shop that specializes in these Audi/BMW paint colors for $500 and know for sure they would match it perfectly.

I'm just wondering if this color is particularly easy to match in general and if I should just go with Xenonz paint service instead. Any advice would be great!

$375 sounds a little expensive to me, I would expect to pay (bumper off car) about 150 or about $200.

If they did it properly and blend it into the front wings so you don't get a colour difference between bumper and wings.

Based on my experience of having repairs done to body panels in cars that I previously owned, any metallic paint is very hard to match. Despite the best efforts of pros, you will still notice a difference between new metallic paint and old metallic paint.
