Also I will be fitting some new alloys hopefully OZ tourismos (18")
Today's progress


Hey, front painted bits dont look to bad in the pics at all. Deflectors look good, got the same ones on my wishlist on ebay. Mk7 ones? Straight push on fit? Not metal clips or sticky pads required?
Ollies122
That was the okay side haha, I'm still going to get them re done (not by someone in a rush)

And yeah MK7 ones pushed on they come with clips the drivers side need two and the passenger side only needed one
Ollies122
Wack some winter tyres on these alloys and get a new set for the 18's

Winter wheels

Summer Wheels :)

That's the understatement of the century!! 12 weeks is a loooooong time to wait for a car!! Come on Ford sort it out....only takes they're robots 9 hours to build a fiesta!!  :( Ive text my dealer every 2 weeks of so for info....pretty sure he'll be glad to see the back of me. By the way did yours have the "unique ST mats" that the brochure talks about or generic ones or none at all?

Ollies122
12 weeks!!! Wow I waited 1 haha

What colour exterior interior???

And they came with mats unsure if they are unique lol, but there are only st emblem mats on the focus :) I've already had a chat with ford :)

But not fussed about the mats because as soon as go for the mountune kit ill be picking a set of theres

1 Week!!! dont make me hate you!!  :P Did they have one already built for you to buy then? I had to wait for one to be built and shipped! Frozen white on the outside with Molten Orange on the inside!!! Getting in on wednesday 14th, booked to drop the front grilles in to be sprayed gloss black on the 14th to get them back by friday 16th. Also booked it in to have some custom ST stripes put on and mirrors wrapped on thursday 15th. So the car better arrive on time after a 12 week wait otherwise I will be  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:

I also waited a week, and got mats with ST logo on.

Ollies122

Well I've spoke to ford and dealer they both say they don't do them.

Ohwell :) mountune mats FTW

Haha don't hate :p

My friends works for TCH and rang me up saying there was on in the showroom to look at :) I went with no intentions to buy, but I fell in love! Ha!

Wow so you've got a busy couple of weeks :)
What colour you having the mirrors???

Naah, happy for you but I'm like a little kid so the wait has killed me. Mirrors being wrapped in gloss black with a horizontal red stripe across. Got a customised ZS stripe kit, which is red and black being fitted, and some custom black viper stripes with a thinner red stripe on top being fitted too. Also booked the front lower grilles in to be sprayed. Gonna be skint this month! Just sold a bunch of stuff on ebay so gonna use the money with next month's pay to buy some black alloys with a red rim. Probably Team Dynamic 17" or 18". So skint again for october. Then towards the end of the year ill do all the little addons, numberplates, remaining lights, wind deflectors, rear window stickers etc. Then Jan its remap, exhaust and air filter......well that't the plan anyway!!  :D

 kinda sad I know but would you mind taking a pic of them, can use it if the dealer claims they don't exist!!  :P

Ollies122
I'm after some OZ wheels in black but money funds are low :) (lets just say woman know how to spend)! Ha
Gerhardva

I wish i got a set of these with mine!

welshy_maverick
Can you buy them from ford or elsewhere?
welshy_maverick

So today I got the call!!!! Not the call that said all was well and my car would be ready tomorrow, 12 WEEKS after I ordered it....but instead the call that said my car was delayed and the next estimated date was now Sat 24th Aug!!! NOT HAPPY!!  :angry: Its a ford built by robots in 9 hours not a hand crafted bentley!! It better be there next sat that's all I can say otherwise I am gonna lose my $#&!£!!!!

Ollies122
I would definitely be complaining! If it was a specific date and not an estimated date maybe a free services or something :)

I had an issue with my Abarth last year they gave me a specific date and put it back twice so I complained and got a free services :) not bad lol
Ollies122

How much? How are you getting it fitted? Does it require major modification or could it be put back to stock quite easily? Very interested in any pics or videos you post!!!
Ollies122

I got a voucher from there stand from Ford Fair should be £ 540.00 but i'm getting it for £ 439.00 :)

 

nope assuming its just cut existing off and weld new one on :), but just having a look around for a decent garage to do the work should cost about £80.00 to fit :) and yes can be put back to stock if needs be, but why would you want it back to stock???.

 

and yeah when it gets fitted ill try and get step by step pictures without getting in there way :)

Well you might wanna put it back to stock.if you only keep it for a year then get a new one on a Ford PCP so need to get a good price on it so you can buy a new one!! ;-) haha!!
Ollies122

haha nope ill be selling the stock one i think :p 

 

plus it's official this is my last fiesta ill be keeping it for two years then I want something with a lot more power :) 

Ollies122
Just to let you know changed my mind from the scorpion to a cobra and getting it fitted on the 31/08/13 at 8:30. Am so excited :)
welshy_maverick

Woke up grumpy that my ST isn't here yet so pushed the dealer for more info on its delay. He told me that it definitely is already built and to my spec, It has been checked and that we are just waiting for it to get here. At least its nothing to do with the paint colour or interior etc I am beginning to suspect that next Saturday will be another repeat of it not being here though. Fingers Crossed... I even considered just forgetting the whole thing and going for a Zetec S...just to get into a new car...made worse by the fact the dealer said he had one in white that customer had turned down...but I just know a week later if be trying to find an ST rear splitter etc  :P plus nothing beats the sound of that dinky little turbo hiss....I wonder if there is a way to fit a louder blow off valve on it!!!

 

Ollies122......I WANT MY CAR!!!!!!!!!!!  :rolleyes: 
Ollies122

DON'T DO IT WAIT FOR THE ST PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE.

 

YOU DON'T WANT A ZETEC S YOU NEED THE ST IN YOUR LIFE :) 

Loz Cheung

i think he might get the hint Ollie haha!

 

i dont disagree for a second though. We all had to wait Welshy. Man the ______ up! :lol:

Ollies122

hahaha lets hope he does :p 

 

I had to wait 7 long days !!! i'm sure you can wait a bit longer :P 

Loz Cheung

buy a fake valve from halfords and fit it to your current car, that'll inject some life into it whilst waiting.

 

and youre impatient over your current zetec s! some people have corsas to live with...

In fairness this is now my 14th week waiting since Ford confirmed my order...how long did you wait for yours?
Ollies122

Maybe you have been waiting 14 weeks but you've waited this long now don't back out for a ZS as the ST is defiantly worth the wait :)

Loz Cheung

I ordered mid feb, picked up mid June due to a delay - rumour was a shortage in red brake calipers!

 

do know how you feel though, i was chewing my arm off by that point. as long as i had brakes calipers i didnt care about having them red calipers by that point!

welshy_maverick
Grrr!! Just got a text from the dealer and its been delayed again....31st of aug now!!!! Suposidly!! Losing faith in Ford as a company for new cars....hype up a new st then mess about the people who actually order them....good business model!!!
Ollies122
Sorry to hear that :( suppose it gives you more time to get all your personal touches in place for when you get it :)

On another note my red bulbs have arrive for the interior :) bring on the red lol :)

It's because they are getting way more demand than they had anticipated.

 

The Fiesta ST is getting loads of good press at the moment which means it is selling like hot cakes. Ford have had to increase production rates to try and keep up:

what bulbs are these....?? can i also purchase these/similar without the need of a paypal account?!

sympathies welshy, any idea why? another reason for delays whilst waiting for mine was the release of the B-max and....C-max maybe?! so a lot of cars were sat at port as they couldnt distribute in time to the dealer network...

welshy_maverick
I guess patience is a virtue and all that. The car is built and checked...just waiting for ford to deliver it. Guess I might as well get it on a 63 plate now even though I wanted it on a 13 plate. But at least if it actually arrives on the 31st aug ill have one of the first 63 plate cars in my town!! The wait is killing me even though I know it will be worth it when I get it!!
Ollies122
Bulbs in :)

I will get you a link for them tomorrow when I'm at a computer

Ollies122

Sorry completely forgot to upload the link.

had to order some more of these as i'm changing the boot lights and the rear reading lights  :D

welshy_maverick
