Let's hear what will be your favorite feature of the Fiesta ST - is it the color choices & combinations, sound (outside) or sound (inside such as the radio, subs, speakers), the interior, etc...

Tie between the Recaros and steering wheel. Ah hell who am I kidding - the seats.


I dove into an on-ramp entirely too fast today. Like, "oh-shitshitshit-I-misjudged-how-tight-this-on-ramp-turns-all-of-a-sudden". In that tight of a turn, I didn't lift throttle or brake, just held it steady and turned in. The ST just ate it up without a single tire squeal in freezing temps. I freaking love this car. So maybe the grins are my favorite feature.

I love the Recaros but for me it's the way the car takes corners.

Besides all the obvious performance stuff, I've gotta admit there's 2 little things I absolutely LOVE.
First - the keyless entry/start. I don't know about anybody else, but I commute quite a bit and always have a bag or two in my hands. Digging keys out of my pocket and fumbling with them is an annoyance I'll be happy to be rid of.
Second - the sound symposer. I fully expected to hate this but I think Ford got it just right. If it were a fake tone pumped through the stereo (like other manufacturers do) I'd have to hate it just on principle. The fact that its the actual engine noise being fed into the cabin somehow makes it acceptable.

i'm actually looking forward to the keyless entry/start, never had it before and i HATE fiddling with keys on a cold day!
and never new the symposer was natural noise channeled into the cabin, thought it was artificial. good to know!

Yep, definitely the keyless system. Sounds silly, but I love it.

I'm in total agreement with you in these two points!

I love just about everything about this car! The best is that it is so much better than my 2010 JCW that I replaced it with in every way. If I were to order a new JCW with all of the options that I have on my ST, it would be close to $38k easy. And it would not ride or handle as well either.

features/price is hard to not compliment Ford on. My favorite is the TQ from a small car.

1) The fact that most car enthusiast know, appreciate and love the damn thing so much, I have had multiple people (older gentlemen in some pretty nice cars) come up and say how much they love the thing and how it reminds them of the original GTI.

2) To 99% of people out there not in the "know" including local law enforcement, its just a normal Ford hatch :), and that is perfectly okay with me :)

None of the above. My favorite feature of the FiST is the copious amounts of boost (and torque) at 2200 rpm. LOL :p

Either the Recaro seats or the shifter. I thought my MS3 shifter felt great, but this thing feels like butter.
I actually like the stock shifter compared to my outgoing '11 Mazdaspeed 3 (and that one even had a Corksport shift plate on it similar design to Mountune's for our FiST). I may just end up leaving the shifter alone... unless I get bored.. boredom always seems to get pushed aside when modifying.. so who really knows? LMAO. :confused:
