I've read about the Fusion Sport colors and some sources say it only came in one type of white (Oxford white) but others say it came with Oxford AND Platinum white.

And I have no idea which one is mine.
Can someone identify?
I'll attach the clearest pics

Take a photo of the paint close up with a flash light next to it. If there are metallic speckles in the paint, you have the Platinum White. The difference between Oxford White and Platinum White are difficult to discern until the car is lit by a strong source (usually the sun does well at this) in which case it become immediately apparent which is which (and why the platinum white is so highly regarded in my soul).

At a cursory glance I believe you have the Platinum White.

Appears to be Platinum White. There should be a color code on the decal on the door jamb.

Oxford=YZ
Platinum=UG

You really need to tint your windows to keep that intense Iraqi sun out. Ask me how I know.

Will take a close up shot soon. Tints have been on my wishlist recently. It’s just so expensive here. You need to pay $1,000 YEARLY as a license to put black tints on your car.

Wow , that is steep. I got to spend a few months in your neck of the woods back in '90-'91 with the U.S. Army during the first desert skirmish. I would have done it to my Humvee if tint was available back then.

They do make clear tint that helps cut down on heat and UV damage to the interior. I have it on my windshield and it does help.

Hi Botani. You could have saved yourself the trouble of taking photos and loading them here. As Gregg1LE stated up above, the correct/easy way to determine your paint color is by finding the paint code listed on the Manufacturers sticker, which is located on the drivers side door jamb.

The two white codes he listed were:
Oxford=YZ
Platinum=UG

Whichever code is on your Manufacturers sticker is the paint color you have.

Good luck.

IIRC the Platinum White is a tri-coat (like the Burgundy Velvet I have) which might mean you have tinted clearcoat. Be careful of letting anybody work on your paint who is not familiar and well-informed about your actual paint type. From what I’ve been told, the tinted clearcoat is relatively soft. My experience is that my paint is disappointingly fragile.

I let a professional “detailer” work on my car who didn’t know about the tinted clearcoat and I didn’t find out until after he’d done the work. So I’m not sure if he could of done anything to damage the paint, but I can say the luster of his work did not stand up for even one year.

Just checked. It’s UG.
I can’t believe the original owner wanted this with no packages except for a moonroof and platinum tri coat…

Nothing wrong with the 400a cars. Plus you could always get an MKZ cluster and upgrade it, that's a huge upgrade if you do that. Huge.

I need to look into that. Especially after that thing I noticed with part of my dash shrinking. I'm thinking I might try to find a place to get that done.
