    I know the colors as I reseaeched them before buying my car as I bought my car two years after I stumbled across FiST’s.
    I even had a friend who wanted one that was Tuxedo Black and then when I bought mine saw that they had changed it to Shadow Black and was dissapointed about the non Metallic
    This was a Galpin Ford the largest Ford dealer in the country,

    I am not incorrect about which paint color was what as I also compared Shadow Black cars on the lot to Metallic colors Like the Magnetic and The Orange Spice. Ford may say its non metallic. But there was flake in it when I bought it and flake in it after it was repainted.


    Guys Do not go by the window sticker go by the paint code on the chassis window stickers can be printed with mistakes.
    Well there is very fine metal flake in Shadow Black as others have said and yes my car has been completely repainted after being damaged during Hurricane Erma in September 2017. I park next to a Tux FoST at work every day I can clearly see the difference. The flake in Tux is much larger with a lot gold in it. You have to be really close to Shadow to see the flake its very fine. And I can read paint codes because I have plenty of job experience in auto body/collision paint and restoration. Tux Black paint code is UH. Looking at my sales brochure for 2016 and no Tux black listed for FiST only Shadow.

    I think the best way to describe it is pearl. Metallic appears to be misleading. I can accept pearl.

    It's a synthetic hybrid of metalflake and pearl. Manufactured by German firm Merck, KGaA. It is called Xirallic (pronounced. zer ral ik). Initially produced only in one factory in Japan. Unfortunately it was located near the Fukushima nuclear plant. So, in March 2011 that plant operation was wiped out. I'm aware that it is used in two shade formulations of black and three or four shade formulations of red. It's pretty special stuff.

    Confusion is understandable regarding what black Finnish was used.....

    Tux, shadow and a straight up, non "color effect " gloss black that temporarily replaced tux because of the sunami and subsequent nuclear power plant disaster in Japan in March of 2011. I always refer to those cars as "sunami black" Fiesta's. The door tag is the best reference as to what they used.
