Posted via FF Mobile Black isnt most favorite because you cant get the damn thing anymore lol. My parents are pretty much down to silver so far. The other colors are unavailable. So far according to the dealer tuxedo black and kona blue are the only colors you cannot order anymore. Red candy is getting there.

The metallic colors were pulled from availability for around a month or so due to a shortage of Xirallic, which is produced in only one factory that is around 30 miles from the nuclear reactors in Japan. Once the paint supply problem was resolved, the metallic colors were available for orders again.

I honestly don't know why Red Candy isn't more popular since it really stands out...of course, some people are afraid of that, but I hate having a car that just blends into all the bland colored cars...whites and grays being the most common. Pictures can't do justice to the metallic colors since they sparkle a bit in the sun and the look changes a bit based on lighting.

Posted via FF Mobile Tuxedo black and kona blue are still out and will be replaced by flat black. Kona blue has not been official replaced yet, but rumor is itll be sonic blue.

On Ford Canada's website, the colour options Black (not Tuxedo Black), Candy Red (not Candy Red Metallic), and Sonic Blue are listed when building the car. However the original colours are also there and the Sonic Blue, Candy Red, and Black do not show a picture.

Does anyone know if Ford will reintroduce Kona Blue and/or Tuxedo Black as the plant has resumed operations.

It's my understanding the plant that produced the Tuxedo Black (and Kona Blue?) is in the radiation zone in Japan and will be out of commission for quite some time. Years, not weeks.

To my understanding, Sonic Blue is slated to replace Kona Blue, and Black replaces Tuxedo Black.

I just ordered a Yellow Blaze Titanium, but I'm not allowed to vote, apparently...
