Any reputable shop always blends adjacent panels , but then you'd not get the cheapest paint job if you're looking for that.

You are absolutely correct!
I took the car to a shop today and they suggested only a section of the door (the part with the door hand, the sticker is on the upper part of that section). I of course bought the car. I will post pics before and after fixing it.
Thanks to all.

Some colors are much harder to match than others, silver for example but I don't know about black, probably much easier and the vehicle is not too old so paint color did not change much from day one. Good luck and welcome aboard!

2012 Sport V6 Classic Silver no option
1999 Lexus RX300 Pearl White base gone
1972 Corolla 1200 Yellow 4 speed manual long gone
Others too many to mention!
