yes it does look good but in pic # 4 the quarter panel clearly doesn't match the rest of the car in color shade.

I use a wax/glaze combo that darkens the paint. Since the paintwork is fresh, I can't wax it for atleast 30 days. That combined with weird lighting makes the rear bumper look dark.

i hope your right for your sake although i never heard of a wax/sealant that darkens paint. i went through the same thing on my 07 miata with true red color. had my fender painted six different times by three different body shops and it never matched, looked very eerily like yours. good luck.
