Recently my focus decided to park itself under the rear suspension band of a 4X4, luckily the owner of the 4X4 was a decent guy and as he had no damage was happy to leave my repair up to me.

I have a 2001 (51 plate) 1.6 Focus, the colour code on the vin is K2 of which on a search gives me ďsmoke stone metallicĒ the car is a standard metallic dark blue that so many other focusís are, Iím trying to replace the bonnet with a colour matched bonnet, the cheapest place being Evil bay, there are loads on there described as state blue?

Question is does K2 smoke stone metallic get described as any other colour??

Thanks in anticipation guys.

Silly question, did you specify that you wanted that code for the up to 53 reg? I went to Halfords, they gave me the correct paint name to go with the code. So theydont tend to have different codes.

Have you cross referenced the results from more than one site?

I am curious to see that you said you are trying to match the bonnet, is it worth doing a respray on it?

I have taken a couple of pictures V5 says Grey, it took me a while to find what the code meant, yet I am open to being corrected.

As you can see from the dent on the bonnet itís a replacement job, Iíve already hammered it out the best I can.

I am trying to confirm if the code also means any other colour as there are a fre bonnets on evil bay descibed as "state blue" that look very similar.

http://www.etis.ford.com/vehicleRegSelector.do;jsessionid=A541B654C1FB76B1603CFC3F8F8B5EEA.walv0673 - pop your reg into there and see what comes up, it has the colour, does it match what you expect?

look auto paints in the yellow pages find one near you and take the car into them for one they will get the correct code and 2 as the paint on the car has aged any paint you get wont be the exact same colour they will make up the paint into aerosols that matches the car as near as possible its far easier than buying paint from ebay that may not even match correctly

Hello!
I'm new to this forum and through this post I want to greet all Ford owners.
I posted here because I have the same problem with the color code as it is k2 (midnight-blue in Germany, 2001), the car is manufactured in Germany in 2001 and is listed in ETIS magnum grey color.
I wanted to ask him our colleague Copperpotuk forum if the cause is learned from this inconvenience.
What could be the explanation for this inconsistency?

Thanks in advance!

It is possible that the first owner of the car to drive through order and wants to have midnight blue color even though that series of cars to be scheduled for magnum grey color, and the operator does not modify the Ford ETIS?
Although k2 color code was used from 2001 to 2004 ford focus as follows:
K2-code is SMOKESTONE England;
In Germany, is k2 MITTERNACHTSBLAU code (MIDNIGHT BLUE)
France BLEU Volcano code is k2;
K2-and in Spain is AZUL CENTAURO code.

K2 code is somehow associated with magnum grey in ecat?


Please help!

As long as k2 color code was used for 4 years (2001-2004) in four countries (as far as I know) England, France, Germany and Spain, as may occur in ETIS and the Microcat magnum gray?
Although I can not find anyone to shine on me, so until then and Microcatul ETIS are just some programs that have gaps, even if everyone is fighting with his fist in the chest that is faultless.[b][/b]

How do I post a pdf with color code from Ford?
04DCO
If my car is made ​​in Germany in Saarlouis(2001-2004), k2 is mitternacht blau color which is code KRYE K9252 effect Y.
For cars manufactured in England(2001-2004), K2 is the color smokestone code is KRYE Kxxx (three digits that make the difference between noantele same color) effect Y.
