Hi guys an interesting question popped up in the Australian group someone asked if there was any difference between the 2013 builds and the 2014 builds (oz version). Having ordered a new 2014 build I was interested to see if there was in deed any difference. So I entered my newly built VIN number and that of VIN from an OZ built FiST from May 2013 into ETIS and compared the differences. Those marked with * are found on one car but not the other. Though others might be interested to see whats on (or not on) the Oz spec ST's. Be interested to see other peoples build difference in builds. ie. the UK specs, SA specs and USA specs see what package differences there really are. As you can see there isn't much difference in the Oz builds in 12 months. (yeah I wanted a break from my work ;)) Apologies its a long post!

Hey Savant, that was me who asked the question you refer to on your post. Good write up by the way, however I have another question...

What does it mean when it says 'Less' before the item and also, is there really any difference between the 2013 and 2014 'built' FiSTs?

Going by your lists you've asterisked the difference but have you compared them in the flesh?

Not totally sure SKYWLKR I'm guessing they are missing. Pick mine up this Tuesday arrived off the boat last week and a mate has last year's build so we will get them next to each other and take a good look.

dont know why i actually question the dealer. even they were scratching their heads but they said that its exactly the same as a Focus ST.

Actually Savant can i ask you a quick question when you press the crusie control on your fist, does any light come on on the dash or the light only comes on when you set the speed?

Yep they are different to mine and to the US version I think. Look good though. Weird!

Yep hit the on button then the set speed up or down to engage it (light comes on). Cancel/resume to switch it temporarily 'off' (light goes off) and again to resume previous cc speed (light goes on).

Where did you get that dead pedal?? Is that stock on yours down there? If not where do I buy it?
Yes, good question. I would like one as well.

Apologies thought it was obvious from my post this is a picture of the US pedal setup (NOT MY AUS spec). I just posted it as a comparison as the Aus spec Jackman got had the same pedal type. Typically the Aus spec pedals are different will post a picture when I get one. As for the dead pedal a guy on another forum makes them (USA). Not sure I am allowed to post details on this forum but a google search should find it.

Perhaps the new Oz FiSTs delivered after April 15th, 2014 are the MY2015 version? Would it be plausible to say that they now have components sourced from the Mexico factory instead of Germany to make up the shortfall in world wide stock and high demand/orders?

Because so far I've noticed a few differences including the revised tach redline being 6500rpm and the different pedals with revised rubber configuration.

I've also heard that there is also a difference with the light bulbs and plastic materials used in the dash and doors.

Anyone else have a hypothesis?

Checked the Fiesta brochure today. Does say 'ST floormats' you would assume they were marked with an ST... interesting I will hit my salesman up to see what he says tomorrow.

Dealer said no fiesta ST's have logos on their mats. Would have been a nice touch Ford...
