After having found some pictures of both cars, i decided to compare the bumpers side by side. What do we think looks better?

ST on the left, Zetec S on the right. Out of the two, i think the ST has the better front bumper, but i'm still very unsure on the new looks.

For me, best to worst I'd say new ST, pre facelift ZS, new ZS. I think what makes the difference on the facelift is the shape of the lower grille - the ZS has the sloping sides the other way round to the upper grille so the two almost appear together as one large hole in the front of the car whereas on the ST they are separate entities. I really like the whole bottom strip on the ST, and the upper grille is a slightly better shape too.

I agree the ST just looks and awful lot better. Im not a fan of the facelifted fiesta at all i think theyve tried to soften the appearance too much to appeal to women! lol Plus the ST has DRL's built into the headlights aswel

They all have DRL's in the headlights, difference is Titanium and ST have LED bulbs, not halogens.

I still feel the design is a bit shoe-horned onto the Fiesta.

The other thing I hate about facelifts is that it is exactly that, just the face, so most of the time the car looks like a cut and shut. I have generally never liked mid model facelifts, with the exception of the MK2.5 Focus.

If I had to pick, the ST looks better though as it is more suited to the new (imo) over-aggressive look, for that type of car.

And mateys, fits on the ZS! I think they're about the £500 mark for front bumper and rear bumper too. Nice cheap ST conversion if you ask me.

I'm considering getting an ST bumper for a new ZS if I do indeed get one, just putting the 'S' badge on it instead. Unsure on the rear valance as of yet.

I think that the ZS actually looks nicer, the grill below the number plate on the st looks a bit crap, big gaps and not very attractive pattern. As for the Transit that looks horrible!
