  1. I hope so as I'm due to change in September
  2. I'm double checking. However on the configurator on the Ford site the st line isn't an option to choose?
  3. Just spoke with my local dealer and they've said the st line won't be out til next year when the st is. Not sure what to do now! Keep my current st line, swap back to an st or go the focus route
  4. Sounds good, my bike is a smaller frame and 27.5 wheel so should fit in no problem if I go the focus route!
  5. Where did you see this? I'm interested in the st line also
  6. I doubt I'd have a towbar fitted to be honest. Would always use some form of sheets in the car to keep it nice and clean :)
  7. Hey! Currently have a fiesta st line, I can just about fit my push bike in the car with the seats down and one of the wheels off. I was just wondering how much more room there is in the rear of the focus? And do any of you guys transport a bike or two bikes in the back of one? thanks in advance
  8. I think also the mix ratio of snowfoam comes into play, I prefer a thinner mix compared to a almost shaving foam thickness. I only really use it if the car is really soiled. And I agree autoglym is love or hate, I think the body shampoo isn't to bad. Everyone will have there own preference on brands and how they wash their car. If you're happy with the results then that's all that matters. I do think spending hundreds on a pot of wax (unless you do it as a profession) is silly.
  9. I use a karcher jet wash and two bucket wash method. If the car is really dirty I will use snow foam or a pre wash on the car first I normally buy my products from either autobrite direct or polished bliss. Agreed with above comments though that products like autoglym, demon shine etc that are sold in places like Halfords are expensive for what they are. Much better brands out there! Although autoglym polish isn't bad to be fair. Products I'm using on my car at the moment are Carpro or bilberry wheel cleaner Autobrite or chemical guys snowfoam Dodo juice basics of bling or chemical guys shampoo Fusso 12 month wax/sealant Gyeon wet coat (spray on spray off hydrophobic coating) My wheels and glass are sealed with gtechniq products Not sure if you do, but don't use a sponge!! Lambs wool or microfibre wash mits are a must. Good luck and I'm sure you'll start getting addicted aha :)
  10. I wonder what colours they will have the st in? The alloys defo don't look like usual Ford styling, more Vauxhall or French
  11. I'll be able to swap my current st line on privilege in September, aslong as I like it in person I'll be placing an order on one I reckon
  12. Just saw a video on Ford uk's Facebook page about the new fiesta st. It says 24th feb at the end of the video so I'm guessing that will be the announcement date?
  13. I like the look of it already. But I agree I thought the mk7 was great looking, but the 7.5 just looked sharper
  14. After owning two st's I now own a 140 st line. The st's power and recaro seats were great. But I much prefer the softer ride of the ST line. The 140 engine pulls really well aswell and is defo not slow Ive found it to be the best of both worlds. And also mentioned above cheaper insurance and tax. I don't find myself as worried about it getting stolen either (although some have which I believe were still keyless though) . Test drive a few types and hopefully it will help you decide
  15. I'm on the privilege scheme so can swap every 9 months, my payments have either stayed the same or gone down, so makes sense to get a new car for less money
