Good to hear about the Blue Candy. I did the same thing when I ordered my 02 T-Bird. Never saw the color in person but went with the Thunderbird Blue and I love it.

That's why I played it safe and went with black. I think it's classy looking, and I know it'll be a PITA to clean, but I'll be happy.

Gobird, you don't have anything to worry about with the Candy Blue, especially after looking at Ghiafan's post with the link below.

Yea, saw that before and looked good but doesn't beat seeing it in person.

With my monitor, pic #3 is the most accurate representation. The first one is darker than real life.

Any of those pics are FAR better than the ones on the Ford site. The pics in that review are very close, while the Ford site looked almost like a teal color. It's almost as they've got the wrong color posted.

I saw a fusion in that color a while back and almost bit the bullet and got it. Had I known it was the same color, and the Ford site wasn't so misleading, I would have gotten Candy Blue, and not black.

Yeah, I had dark gray as my color until I saw the blue at NAIAS and changed it.

I agree, the Ford site looks teal/aqua - and my monitor is calibrated for photo work.

Well I'm new here, found your web site while doing research on Elantra vs Focus.

I decided on the focus and ordered the kona blue titanium, with the winter package, gps, and the black rims.

I ordered on 4-13-11 so now I'm waiting for a vin and build date!

Just bought and picked up my new 2012 Focus Sedan SEL last night. Its Tuxedo Black Metallic, has the Rapid Spec 303A package, moon roof, 17 inch rims, MyFord Touch. Software version on the MyFord Touch is Gen2-V2.10

So far, its a fantastic car. I'm having one quirky issue with the calendar app on MFT. Seems the calendar (which apparently gets its date from the GPS) is 12 hours off. There is no way to set the date manually. At noon today, the calendar flipped to Saturday, April 23rd. Changing the time does not do anything to bring the calendar back a day. Spoke to Sync Tech Support online and they show I have all the latest updates and dont have any info on this issue (not a big surprise seeing that this model is still very new), and told me to call the service department of my local dealer. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them!

Same with the Kona Blue. It looks MUCH better in person compared to the Ford build site.
