Apologies for the double post since no one has since responded to the thread, but I just got my car today and I'm really rather excited still.









Unfortunately due to when it arrived it was dark and raining so I was not able to get any good pictures of it all still wrapped up in the plastic, but isn't she a beauty?

I certainly think so.

Very nice and I do like that color!! You did get the winter package so can you confirm that you got both the carpeted floor mats and the rubber ones too?

Carpeted mats are in the bags in the hatch as you can slightly see in the one hatch open shot, they installed the rubber mats at least in the front, I'll have to double check that the ones in the rear are in place, but I don't believe they are not in place.

Unfortunately I believe it rained after I got her home and she might not be as clean as she was when I picked her up, but I do really like the color.

They actually left the window sticker in the window, so they technically might not have cleaned the driver side rear passenger window, but I did get to take it down carefully and without tearing it :)

If you had more freedom with the colour I'm sure we'd see more.
If Ford would have let me order an SE Sport hatch in Frosted Glass with the black wheels, I would've done it. I think it would've looked great.

I want to see a Frosted Glass with Titanium lights and bezels. I'd do that.

I gave my dealer two choices for my color. Frosted Glass was first. Sterling Gray Metallic was second. There wasn't a frosted glass at any dealer in this state.
But I admit I LOVE my grey girl!

I think this might be because they may have only made around 5% of the 2012 Ford Focus in Frosted Glass, at least from what I can tell based on looking at a few local areas across the country.

Sterling Grey isn't bad looking, but it was running at a nearly 20% rate as far as cars sold, and it was far too common where I live.

I prefer Frosted Glass before all other colors, but that's another reason I'm thankful I was able to order a 2012 instead of waiting for a 2013.

Still looks like the color of alot of car interiors/exteriors (My grandmothers '71 Buick is the same color) from the '60s and '70s;not bad but it is a tame color and I think it's going to age like the teal of the '90s or the Salmon color Ford ushered out for one year in the early '90s.

I know it's not a Focus, but boy do the new Escapes look good in Frosted Glass.
