Captur Signature Colour fault

I have a 12 month old red captur signature of which the 2 rear quarter panels are a slightly different red. I have been to the Renault body shop who say this is normal as they are plastic and the boot/rear wings are metal ( but this difference is not apparent on the front and front wings which are also plastic). He also says this occurs on clio''s and Kadjur''s. I asked Renault customer support about this, saying I was most unhappy, but they agree with the body shop and say nothing can be done about it, as it's just a fault with this colour.
Has anyone else got this problem? You need to look at the car from about 5 metres away.

Re: Captur Signature Colour fault

Would seem strange, and hard to believe, that a company would allow a colour that did not match..
Its allowing a known issue... out of the production line,,, cannot only be you that has noticed
Has tinternet thrown up any info???

Re: Captur Signature Colour fault

Renault are aware, and no recall....
Something not quite right there ..
Why? Would they still use the same colour..........
As you have said, lot of plastic on the car, is it exhaust side, or both sides of the car
