Actually the color can be spelled either way. I believe "Grey" is the spelling in the UK and "Gray" is the American spelling.

I have seen both spellings on many items.

Yes, but I also see "then" used instead of "than" as often as not, so I prefer to rely on 'official' sources. Every US dictionary I've seen has -ay as the proper form and -ey as the secondary/variant.

But I will concede that the proper British form of the color is indeed -ey.

I like it!

However I understand it is no longer available. There will be a new "red candy" formulation available but it will not be metallic?

I'm confused... and I really wanted to get this car on order today. :(

Try asking your dealer to look around for you for the "older" Red Candy color. There may still be some out there on lots.

As for me, as I've said before, I went with silver, partially because that's the car the dealer had on the lot that wasn't terribly loaded up (with a sunroof or leather seats--of which I didn't really want to pay extra for). My first choice was the Blue candy, but then decided that it was either Blue Candy without the SelectShift or some other color with SelectShift. The SelectShift won because I think I'd make more use of that than have a bright blue car.

But the Red Candy does look nice. It's just that my last three cars have been red, and all 3 managed to get backed into or hit by someone else.... so I said I'm done with red for now. I think it was a streak of bad luck to have a red car... hopefully my Silver Focus won't have to experience the same stupidity from other drivers.

Can't vote..... Frosted glass....I really didn't like it at first but it just came off the truck and the dealer bought back my fiesta so I went ahead and went with it. Really glad I did because I like it more and more everytime I look at it. I get alot people really diggin the color and the car. Window tint and rims in the future.

I originally wanted to go with Kona Blue, but luckily that wasn't available b/c I don't think it would have looked good with the black 17" wheels on the SE Sport Package. Then I wanted Tuxedo Black... now this would have looked great with the package but would have been impossible to keep clean and was also no longer available. Then, I finally decided upon Sterling Gray Metallic. Which I'm glad I did b/c I saw one freshly detailed and it looked absolutely amazing.

I'm curious why more people didn't pick Frosted Glass Metallic?

I saw it initially in person and was blown away! It changes color throughout the day, and looks especially awesome at night.
