2012 Blue Candy Tintcoat Paint Issue

I have a 2012 Blue Candy tintcoat SE sport package. I noticed one day in good lighting that the car had light and dark spots all over the pax and driver sides. The edges of the door panels are darker blue and the center of the door panels is a lighter shade. Almost looks like light and dark "blotches"

I was told by ford that this was normal for this color and they would do nothing about it.

Does anyone else who has this color have this issue? It is most noticable in direct sunlight.

Does anyone have any way to possibly get in contact with someone at Ford who will take action. It is a great color and a great car, I hate to have to elevate the issue any further.
