What do you guys think of this CO color match?

My buddy came up with a near perfect color match using PPG. I am impressed. What do you guys think? The card on the left has three layers of pearl coat and slightly darker base. the one on the right has less tint and less pearl. I kinda like the left one because of how it pops in the sun because of how the pearls were put down. Much brighter.

PSA for people trying to get a PPG color match. They had to use an Audi orange base to get the color right. PPG reps came out to blend the color. I will post the formula on here when i get the cards from him.

To me, based solely on the photos presented, the one on the right is closest. I think, on a car by itself, no one would know that it wasn't CO. Again, based on the photos.
