Paint does not match

My wife was recently involved in an accident and after getting the call that her Jeep was ready we went to look at it. Well, the paint does not match. The shop foreman told us that the only way to match it perfectly is to paint all of the vehicle.

Yesterday after speaking with the insurance company everyone at the body shop now insists it to be a perfect match.

The color is cactus green.

The shop foreman said this is the only shade available for that paint code. But after doing some research we found that there were two different clears available, metallic, and pearl.

Can anyone tell me which of these would give the paint a gold/tan tone in direct sunlight?

Thanks in advance for any help...
