I read that on overboost, it produces 214lb-ft of torque - 15 more than my focus with the same engine!

If i were to go back to a Fiesta, this would be the model that'd tempt me :)


I can imagine your Focus feels fast - the same engine (with more overboost torque) must make the Fiesta pretty quick

i wonder what the differences between your Focus/ the Fiesta ST is for it to make the extra 15 ib- ft of torque?

Have something to contribute?

I would imagine just a different map rather than anything mechanical for 15 pounds extra.

I thought that too - there is probably a lot of potential in remapping it

So anyone else actually ordered one?

I've had my order form for an ST2 in panther black with style pack & spare wheel in my grubby hands since the 19th Jan and got a good discount of £1631.00 off the OTR price too, from local dealer.

I'm being told it will be delivered 1st or 2nd week of March.

Take that leap of faith and place an order, I'm confident you'll never regret it. Lol

Got a call today from my dealer with a delivery date of 7th March.

So that's 37 days, 11 hours, 56 minutes. Lol

But I'm not really counting

A bit like a blind date! or getting married with just seeing a picture of your future wife! :lol:

Seriously i think the looks will grow on you, will "mature" - the more you see it, the more "right" / "normal" it looks

What's wrong with marrying for looks alone, loads of celebs do it and ill probably keep the ST2 longer than some of them stay faithful. Lol

I genuinely looked in to putting a pre-facelift front end on it, needs a new bumper, wings and bonnet, with headlights, fogs and so on. I haven't looked how the wings are attached, but could be done for about £800 at a breakers. Slightly tempting.

£800 to improve the car's look? Very tempting!

Yeah, as long as it's the right colour, bit more if not. Not sure if anything else would be needed as of yet, I'd imagine slam bar and such would be the same, but not seen one in the flesh to open the bonnet up and such.

Why don't you find someone with a pre-facelift front-end (in the same color) who wants to "upgrade" to a facelift and just swap them round? (if you follow what i mean) - mabee even make a profit :)
