Bmw e46 330ci paint and polish

I work for a body shop in the northwest and recently completed this bmw e46 coupe where we repainted the rear quarter two wings front bumper bonnet and bottom of the n/s door.



Hope you enjoy

Wouldn't it have been better to paint both doors so it all blends in together?

Looks like they've only blended into the front of the wings anyway, so it's fine

I'm guessing they painted the lower door due to damage?

The doors are two completely different colours compared to the rest of the paint
