I know I just have a cobalt, and I wouldn't have said a word if there were just a couple flaws here and there. But just because I have a cheaper car doesn't mean they should get away with a crappy paint job.

The new fender fits fine, they just didn't have the headlight in straight, but the biggest thing was the parts the forgot to put back on the car and then all the scuffs and scratches all over the paint job. Standing 10' away from the car you can see the scuffs and scratches in the last 2 pictures I posted..... I don't think that should be acceptable for a $10,000 or a $100,000 car..........
