Those cars are not DDs. . He was saying that the color you're asking about...blue...seems to be popular.

The driver of those cars, Ken Block, just transitioned from lime green to blue for his PROFESSIONAL TEAM.

You were given a compliment.

THe only thing I like on there is the racing stripe "dual outline" - the grey and blue are my favorite. You guys think it's worth it to buy/install it from Ford? And which strip looks better? Grey or Blue? I can't decide! thanks.
I think blue strip would look better. Grey looks too monochrome. You could also do the badges (Focus/SE) up in blue.

Actually I think I like the "dual center" better on that site because it doesn't have a border.
I found one online that appears to be the same: wide body graphic (it's 10/1/10). There's also the double trouble graphic (but this is 8/4/8 so it's a bit thinner looking). I feel like the wider one would probly be better because it's a wide looking car.
Also these are generic colors, not Ford specific. Speaking of which Ford charges $409... " Dual Center Blue 409.00 Installed Design Code: FCG1444 "

question: is it legal to cover the white side-mirror turn signals with tinted blue vinyl? I looked up the law in MD and it's a bit hazy. It is not illegal to cover secondary lighting, however it did say that one can not have moving red or blue lights on the center of the front of the vehicle. Since it's not in the center of the vehicle, but it is front-facing, will it be illegal? The light will still shine through amber when I activate turn signal.
Specifically, this is the item I purchased.Thanks.

Very old thread, but the light shining through is the key point here.

If the light shining through is amber, you should not have any issues.

If the light shining through is blue - you could get hassled - the issue here would be impersonating a police officer - the actual law might say the center of the front of the vehicle, but it would be similar to those blue washer nozzles or blue under car lighting, or throwing a red strobe on top of the car - they are technically not illegal and you would PROBABLY win in court, but you would likely still get a ticket.
