Mmmmmmm, nope. 2 years into owning Iconic Silver it's going to look pretty much exactly like the picture. Lets be honest with ourselves here, how many folks who own "I don't have an opinion so I bought what the dealer had on the lot: Silver" cars are out there doing paint correction and keeping that clear coat optically clear so the silver "pops"?

For fun the next time you go for a drive, pay close attention to cars in this shade of silver. It's actually going to be more difficult to spot them than you think, they are so incredibly numerous and bland that they melt right into the background of your consciousness.

Really focus on seeing them. Then pay close attention to how visually stimulated you are by seeing that color. There will be tens or hundreds to observe daily (depending on your drive distance) since this color is as common as buttholes.

That feeling of tepid existence, that feeling deep down in your cockles of..... What are we talking about? Iconic silver? Oh, it exists. What more did you think you were getting?

Yep, this is ultimately what killed this color for me. Silver turns to gray in like 2 years. Just like Rapid Red will turn to maroon in 2-3 years, AMB to navy, etc.

Meh. Wheels too skinny, tires too all-season, paint too common and boring, mud flaps look ridiculous.

When the privacy tint is darker than the top, then Ford has failed. The only acceptable reason why this left the factory is if it was promptly to be driven in to a wall for crash test data.

And those mudflaps... just don't.

What were you honestly expecting?

It's possibly the most dull shade of silver possible and you were expecting it to somehow not look like this:

But have all the spice, excitement and svelte sophistication of this:

Iconic silver is a color to offend no one. 99.9% of customers who darken a dealership floor will not be turned off by the color. A color to excite no one. To exist is to be Iconic silver.

Iconic silver is the "extra medium" of everything. Is that shirt just a touch too small or large? Extra medium is there and fits like something non-offensive. It will work. No, it's not going to fit well or feel great. But it's there. And if you wanted "well I guess it's here, so that's good enough for me", then Iconic silver is there to, um, I guess just be there.
Another epic quote from Rick Astley. I will offer one defense of this otherwise non-exciting color:
The MIC top in this photo actually makes the silver look like primer paint. I had a similarly colored JK and it can look good. It's all about the accessories

Even the Geo Metro has potential:

Silver was in my short list. This takes it off. It just looks boring.
This was on my short list two, but after I went to the dealer and saw it in person I decided it was too light. About halfway between this and CG would be perfect.
