Feel free to post any pics of rare colors.
Or show any errors, maybe the silvers are only different in names?

How about that Vermillion Red was an 08 only color, as was the Coupe S. Huh, wonder how rare my 08 is then?.....

By what you say I have a rare car then, mine is a Ice Blue and it's a 2009...

Now that I think about it almost every single Ice Blue I see has the chrome vents, meaning '08. Huh

No, I did not say it was rare. I said I wonder how rare it is. There is a difference there, haha.

Anyone have a side by side of vapor silver, brilliant silver and ingot silver?
I looked on Auto Trader of 08-11 Silver Focuses for sale. '09 and '10-11 silvers are so close, hard to tell apart. 08 Vapor Silver is darker, like grey. And 08 Silver Frost is somewhat lighter than later silvers.

2009 Brilliant

What's the 10th digit in your VIN #? 8 = '08, 9 = '09 The 2008 Order Sheet doesn't list Sang. Red, you may have an early 2009. Build date is not same as model year.

Some state's DMV's will use build date for model year, when it should be the VIN code, 10th digit #. Also, no, the # in tailight lenses is not accurate, as in the 60's when designs changed every year.
