I personally don't, however, I would not recommend pre-painted body pieces such as bumpers as the paint may not match. Sure you are using the factory paint code, but that doesn't consider factors such as slightly faded paint on a 6 year old car. Also, silver is a color that can be hard to match. My recommendation would be to get the bumper you want and have a reputable local body shop paint it. If you have issues down the line, most body shops offer a warranty whereas it would be difficult to take care of if you order something pre-painted online.

You'll never get a better answer than this one! Our light colors, IP and all the silvers are very difficult to match. I've seen some very poor matches at shows/meets, done wrong it looks really bad....

I ordered a front lip from everything g35 and the color was soo off, it wasnt even funny. So for $470 I went to my local body shop. I had them color match and install the lip, sand down my front bumper and repaint it. And detail the car. Just my 2c

^What? So you want him to take his car to japan? lol. Sorry but every Infiniti dealership sprays a different line of paint. One dealer will match better with one color and another dealer might match better on a different color.

But like Gary said just buy a bumper and bring your car to the body shop so they can match it as close t your fenders as possible or spend some extra money and have them allso blend

Thats what factory color codes are for and any shop will blend for ageing it doesn't have to be an infiniti dealer
