Need your assistance - VW Golf MKV paint issues (LC9Z)

Good evening all,

So I recently had a bit of an accident with my Golf and hit the rear of the car. I've sanded, primed, base coated and clear coated the area affected.
I've tried using Meguiars Ultimate Compound to remove some of the roughness with the job I performed (including using a Black & Decker polisher) and I cannot get the paint to match what was there before, in fact it looks like a complete mess and I have no idea how to resolve. Please see some images below of the issues (for reference, the left of the 'Golf' badge is what it was like before):

Any help, tips or assistance would be greatly appreciated. I want my car to look perfect, I want it to be beautiful.

Edit: I also feel like I'm making progress towards the VW badge (it's starting to match the area beside the 'Golf' logo). How do I make this all appear the same?

Take it to a body shop and have it proffesionaly done. Almost impossible to blend paint without all the dyes they have.

I'm confused as to what I'm looking at tbh, but what levels of sanding were done after the clear was laid down?
