I'm done buying red cars. I sort of like the Kona Blue, and think that will be probably what I'll buy if/when I get mine.

I don't see the point of paying an extra $500 for the yellow tri-coat paint job. It's just a color, in my opinion. (As long as it's not pink/purple the color really isn't an issue to me, IMO.)

Kona Blue is no longer available. The dark blue replacing it is kinda ugly in my opinion.

It is kind of nuts to pay an extra $500 for a color, but it is definitely not just any yellow. I suppose that scoring an X plan pin from a Ford friend took the edge off. Heck, my "other" vehicle will end up being an '06 Toyota Sienna ... even the Titanium I am ordering will be quite a bit cheaper.

I would imagine it's because there are probably still dozens if not hundreds of cars already in inventory in that color so they need to show it.

However, you cannot special order it any more, they stopped production on it a while ago when the supplies ran out as a result of the earthquake in Japan.

Actually, after looking at more and more Focus HB's online, I think I may go with the blue candy color (the ligher blue) after all. The Kona blue looks a bit odd up close, but the candy blue I like. The frosted glass color may be a possiblility, but only if I can't find a candy blue one in my price range...

I would try to see both in person first if possible. The candy blue is almost what I would describe as a pastel kind of blue, or electric blue/green.

Ingot Silver Metallic!

I was interested in Red Candy, but I couldnt see any colors in person except Race Red -- so I went with my standby, Silver. I love silver cars! In fact, my current 2008 focus is silver and I love it!

Of course, the Kona blue looks amazing from the photos I have seen, and I did see somene driving the candy blue. I dont like blue personally, so it was out of the question.

I saw the red candy in person, it is a pretty dark red/maroon but I kind of liked it. Of course this was the older paint code that is no longer available, supposedly the new one is close enough that they can keep the name of it the same and just change the paint code number.

I would definatley look at them in person first. I do that for anything major I buy (TVs, computers, etc). Problem is that NOBODY around here has too many of them. Most dealers only have 2-3 on the lot, and their either black, white, or yellow. I've only maybe seen 1 candy blue '12 Focus in the past few months... they aren't too common around here.

Maybe I'll just find any dealer that has one (close by) and just to go take a look and see if I like the color in normal daylight rather than Ford's color "estimate" on their website.
