The clutch and gearbox is lighter on the Fiesta, though they are really light on the Focus.Same pick up and go, I like the sound symposer. The Sync, is so much better in the Fiesta, maybe not quicker but sharper display, different options.The rear view visability is also a lot better in the Fiesta, the headrests block a lot of the rear view in the Focus ST.The front seats seem a bit more grippy, maybe a little tighter in the waist but no big deal.My wife loves it after her WRX.Not sure if she will go with the FSwerks tune like I did with the Focus.

Congrats! What color / options did you get? How are you liking it?
Molten Orange with sunroof, orange Recaros, painted wheels and nav. Really enjoying it! Still getting used to driving manual transmission, of course, so I've had my share of frustration, but I can't blame the car. It's got zip, the visibility is good, and it's *so small* that it's really easy to place. Preferred it to the Focus ST I drove.

Picked mine up last weekend.. Race Red aluminum wheels. Unfortunately the factory didn't finish the door handle so the dealer first tried painting it which didn't work. Then they transplanted a door handle from a 2014 Fiesta SE sedan,model (FrankenST) now the driver's seat creaks like an old door. Anyone else with similar issues or am I just Murphy's Law? I had to have the dealer get mine from 500 miles away. They aren't available locally yet as I live in a small Midwestern town.

I got one yesterday in ingot silver at Fiest Ford in Indio, CA. Drove an hour and half to buy now I need to go pick up my mk2 jetta gli at the ford dealer since didn't have anyone to give me a ride to the dealership. I'm enjoying the car so far since it has all the creature comforts that my old jetta didn't.

I finally picked mine up yesterday. Molten orange, molten orange recaro seats, painted wheels/brake calipers, navigation, and moon roof (all options available in Canada). I think its the first in the area. I love it. I love the seats, very comfortable. My boyfriend has recaro seats in his '09 Mitsu Lancer Raliart and the recaros in the FiST are a lot more comfortable and cushier.

Unfortunately, I have the winter tires (and ugly steel rims) on and its been cloudy and snowing since I got it so I haven't taken any pictures. I'm leaving tonight on a vacation so I'll try to post some pics when I get back.

Howdy folks...first post for me. Bought a FiST in black today....picking it up Wednesday. Has all the options so nothing to make feel like I'm missing out. I registered on MyFordTouch while waiting for the finance paperwork, and it already says I need a software update. Guess I'm already due for an upgrade and haven't even driven it home yet...sweet.

I have had mine for over 5 weeks now. I got a Molten Orange with Orange Recaros, Sunroof, and dark painted wheels. I took one of the 3 the dealer had to offer so I would not have to wait if I ordered. Looks like the dealers were stocking up on the orange cars. I hope picking that color was not a mistake. If I had ordered it I would have gotten the Oxford White with orange Recaros and that is it.

Got mine 2 weeks ago. Black with the Recaro interior (wanted the heated seats) and no sunroof (for auto-x)

Like it a lot so far. Obviously doesn't have the same power that my BMW had or that my evo has, but still is a blast to drive!

Just got mine last Saturday. Molten Orange with the orange heated Recaro's, Rado Gray wheels and red brake calipers. No sunroof or navigation (I think at least, salesman said there should have been an SD card in the owner's packet but there was none.) It had 36 miles on it when I left the dealership and I've got 320 miles on it now. I love the car so far, and I can't wait for some breather mods to come out.
