Hi all, I'm Vincin from South Africa. Have my FiST from 09/2013 and am already doing 33000 kms and thoroughly enjoying this beauty. I have a long tradition of FORDS only starting with a 1966 Cortina GT, 1970 Capri, 1980 Escort 1600 sport, Focus, Focus ST, Fiesta Titanium and now a Fiesta ST.
It's good to be part of the international Ford family.

Hello, my name is Stephen. I bought my first Ford ever on May 14. It is a FiST 2014 Recaro seats, Moon roof and Nav in Ingot Silver with dark grey rims. I have owned 1 Volve S40 2006, VW Golf TDI 2012 and 3 Mini Coopers. The last being a Clubman. The ST is faster, handles better than all the previous cars. I just love driving this car! I Call her Bullet. I know it's not original, it just seemed right. I'm not a big Mod guy, I'm honestly not mechanical. I've only tinted the Windows. I plan to up the HP by whatever the easiest and safest way to do that. Thanks for hearing me out.

Hey everyone,
My name is John, I live near Toronto. Just purchased a fully loaded molten orange st, with the orange recaros yesterday. Clocked 350kms so far. Loving every second of it. I used to own a 2000 focus zx3, which I absolutely loved, and the fiesta st is everything I wanted the zx3 to be. Very happy I chose the little brother.

Howdy all, New Mod, from wonderful warm and steamy Fayetteville, NC. Came over on the 4th of July to look around, help out, and see how the FiST platform is getting along. Love the FiST and even though I'm not an owner I'm trying to convert both my Wife and Daughter over to the hot hatches since both are currently in Mustangs. We're an all Ford family and I wish to add a FiST to the stable. Hope to see everyone around at the C&Cs here in NC if you're on here. For everyone else I'll see you around the forum.

Hello!
Just ordered my 2015 Fiesta ST last night after being unable to find a 2014 with the options I wanted. First new car purchase!
Oxford White, Recaros, Moonroof... skipped the painted calipers because I want black wheels with neon calipers & matching badges.
Praying to the manufacturing gods that it comes in for my 25th birthday in August

Just saying hi even though I'm not an owner yet. Plan on getting a Fiesta ST as a graduation gift in spring/summer 2016.

Past cars were 2001 GTI, 2003 Evo, 2012 Mustang GT, and my current - 2013 Evo. Just love the handling & AWD of the Evo.

I had my sights set on a GT-R in the future, maybe I still will some day, but I love nimble, smaller cars. That and I'd like to get a 4Runner eventually as well...Ok, I've rambled enough!

New ST owner as of last week! Tuxedo Black, Nav, Rado gray wheels and sunroof.

This will be my daily driver while the truck waits for the weekends to pull the dirtbikes somewhere dirty fun.

Very happy so far, except for the sound system which is disappointing. Looked in on the local audio store and they have what i think will be a good solution, so stand by for that update.

Enjoying the website so far too -- seems like a good community of enthusiasts.

Hi, all, Doug here, from Atlanta.

Just got back from Charlotte North Carolina last night, where I picked up my Molten Orange with Recaro seats, red calipers, Nav, and Moon. I was all set to buy a Tuxedo Black at the dealership, when I saw my first Molten Orange in the flesh and in their parking lot, and I couldn't resist! We had to redo all the paperwork, because I was about to drive out with their Black one... I'm very glad I switched!

It was a fun highway trip from Charlotte to Atlanta, but it did not even compare to the thrill of driving the twisty, rolling roads close to home...

So far what I like most is the broad torque band and exquisite throttle steer; least is the stereo, and I just noticed an uneven body panel, and ever so slight tint differences at the rear driver side... this on a new 2014 with 85 dealer miles... My guess is that this is just low quality workmanship at the factory, but I will be asking the dealer about this on Monday...

Hi from a NOOB

Morning all.
I just got an Ingot Silver ST last Saturday. I traded my 2000 Explorer Sport to my son for a MK4 Jetta the he had have a year & a half ago. What a pile!
Anyway, traded the Jetta in for the ST in Salinas, Ca. 300 miles from home. So 1st drive was down Route 1 along the coast.
For those out there who don't know, Route 1 is this wonderful, twisting ribbon of tarmac 170 miles long. An Epic ride for motorcyclists. And an Epic drive in a new ST!
Now I was behaving myself & didn't make chase on the M3 that passed me because the car had less than 100 miles. But the 2nd time that the couple on the Ducati went by, I couldn't resist!
This is going to be a fun car to own & enjoy!

HI All,

Just got MO Fist last night, after months of emailing and research.

I live in Albany and commute to Foster City to work.
So if you are in the area and also travelling 880 and 92, you may see me driving (slowly in the slow lane during break-in period)
Honk and say hi. :)

HI: been on this site for a few months now, but still don't know how to post all the "Goodies" on the opening Avatar! I'm 68, live in Central PA (Annville, east of Hershey--chocolate town) retired from Hershey Med Center (Med school for PSU) working 36 yrs in the surgery dept--last 27 in Artificial Organs, where we built artificial hearts and ventricle assist devices. Have an MS in Polymer Science from PSU, (Undergrad chem/bio from Gettysburg College--you can guess the town--sorry, you Rebels!) and started with a 1970 BMW 2002 that I got immediately upon college graduation! (Grades were SO GOOD that the college told me to take a "hiatus" so I did 2 yrs active in USMC and returned to be a second sem. soph, as my class of '68 was being graduated, hence, the 1970 2002) I DESTROYED that car, not on purpose, of course, and my pilot buddy who has a 1971 911T in AS NEW condition STILL gets the shakes when he thinks about me using Vice Grips to pull out my fenders after a good friend sold me some 13" x 8" wheels with about 4" positive offset--so they stuck out the sides of the car about 3." Also, added Cibie (are they still in business?) Super Oscars in the front grill by removing the grill bars. The Super Oscar was a driving light--picture a basketball and cutting it in half--that was the size! Anyhow, many BMWs since, Auto-X'd a LOT, finally went to Achieva SCX and WON now and then! Had a Land Rover Derfender 90 which I NEVER should've let go (Thanks, Wife!) a Land Rover Disco, followed by a Neon (with 19" wheels, BTW!) a Honda Element that I NEVER should've traded in on my Race Red FiST this past May! Since then, it has COBB Air intake system, COBB FMIC, Rear Engine Mount, and COBB Turbo back exhaust! (Plus, of course, the 'Stand shift knob!) In the spring (after winter clears out!) it will get Coil Overs, Stoptech Big Brake kit, Whiteline sway bars, and offset bushings, etc. that will be needed to maintain good wheel alignment by lowering the car. The car had NO options at all, and for MY money, I'd LOVE Ford to make the cars with all that info/crap/sync stuff TOTALLY optional! All I WANT is AC! Keep the rest. At 6' and 270, the Recaros were NOT EVER going to work, but seriously guys, I'm NOT all that FAT!! Hobbies include 1/350 model WWII ships (more ships fit on a shelf than airplanes!) Stereo/HDTV, and target shooting--also reloading. Hope this isn't TOO boring, but for SURE, the FiST is FUN as can be!! Glad I got one before it is time for the retirement home!

After TWICE re-reading my "novel" above, before editing it, I posted it with typos, of course! The Landie was, of course a DEFENDER 90! I somehow forgot to say I am a bass trombonist who has been thrown out of more orchestras than you can imagine in Central PA, AND, what makes my car REALLY Fast is I have TONS of COBB decals!!! Sorry, again, for the "book" originally posted!

I'm new to the hot hatches. Coming out of a corvette that has become too difficult for my wife to get in and out. So far I love the fun factor. Not as fast as the vette, of course but really engaging to drive. The upside is that I can drive it in the winter. Changed the summer tires for all seasons. It seemed too complicated to do the winter tire route. I hope to see a lot of fun out of this car and to learn some things on this forum to make it even more exciting to drive.
