Your original paint has yellowed with age and UV. Have the rest of the car polished, then if you really are bothered by this, ask your body shop if they can apply new paint tinted to the proper hue. Just realize that you're attempting to hit a moving target, as the new paint will retain it's color pretty well for a few years while the old paint will continue to break down. A future mismatch is inevitable. My Oxford White 1999 Expedition is parked in the shade 5 days a week. I park near a 2001 model purportedly painted the same color. The difference in hues is already noticeable.
