Is it too light or too dark? If the paint is too dark, then yes, the paint has faded. Unfortunately, paint starts fading as soon as the vehicle leaves the paint booth, but some colors hold up better than others.

You can blend the paint or custom match it. See for blending information and also look at for custom matching information.
