Ford Fiesta ST
« on: December 02, 2017, 02:30:22 PM »
I wanted to drive something different and seeing how I primarily stay in the city minus the occasional weekend jaunt. I decided to purchase a compact car, but I wanted something fun to drive, and have decent power. Ended up finding this 2015 Ford Fiesta ST with only 5026kms on the odometer! The steering wheel adjuster still has the factory mesh cover wrapped over it. It comes with a 6 speed manual transmission, heated recaro seats, and only lacks factory navigation and a sun roof for options.

Went and took it on a test drive, primarily to see how the clutch felt (nice and light)  and if I can sit comfortably in the car and fit in the recaro seats. The car had some dealership stickers on the back, I removed them with photoshop in this picture. When I took the car home, I removed them for good and tossed out the dealership plate cover.


First day home.



I already took advantage of some black friday deals, and purchased some 3" Morimoto led fog lights for the car. I also picked up some Lamin-x tint. Amber for the fogs, and smoked for the headlights. I also put in an order for some Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 studded tires. Next up will be some weathertech floor/cargo mats when the christmas deals start flying around and I'm going to pick up some Thule aero bars for the roof.

Looks like I didn't have to wait till Christmas. Found a good deal on some 480R traverse feet, and when I was looking for a fit kit for the car, I noticed Thule has black aeroblades available to purchase. So I decided to pick up a pair along with the fit kit. So I installed everything last night. Decided to take a quick snapshot while out on a breakfast run.

I hear these are fun cars.  A member from Quebec went from a 355 to  Fiesta ST when they first came out. He was having a blast with his last time I  heard.

Yeah this car is fun around town. Plenty of power to mess with between gears. This weekend i'll go on a highway jaunt with it and try it out. I replaced the stock 205/40R17 summer tires with a set of 205/45R17 Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8's yesterday. The tire options in 205/40R17 suck, so I upsized. The car is pretty much ready for winter now.
