I thought so, thanks, just I've seen on other forums people comparing them and I don't understand why? As you said they are completely different cars? Anyway your pair do look stunning together! A question I have for you owners is so far, how much tar does that bottom painted bit of the rear spoiler on the back above the exhaust pick up? I am only just thinking about that as mine is white!! 

 

Don't know yet pal, I haven't had the car long enough. There's a few guys with white ones on fiestaownersclub.com, you could ask one of them.

Did you see i posted some pix today of my white one lol i have done 283 mls in mine an cleaned it a week ago so not looked at that rear lower panel yet but think it will pick up dust , dirt an exhaust soot etc plus tar like the tailgate does and side skirts being white as this is my 4th white car now with my previous ones needing some elbow grease to clean sometimes .

Yeah I commented on your photos, wish I didn't look at them as it only makes me more agitated to get mine lol!! Great photos, but glad to hear it will pick up the dirt haha. My rear quarters on my ZetecS seem to collect tar dots like stamps collecting  :(

You could of borrowed mine lastweek lol as didn't use it all week , only got it out of the garage today an had some fun mainly in 2nd , 3rd and 4th gears with the window down listening to the turbo and that throaty roar in the cabin with out making you too jealous :D cars come up behind you an then you cog it down or just use the torque an they disappear getting smaller in ya rear view mirror

 

The first day i got mine i change those horrible yellow number plate lights an put my Led canbus ones in an they look really cool beaming down to the ground over tailgate , rear bumper and on the rear lower panel :)

Hi Joe , it's reading 29.1mpg at the mo an still rising have only done 283mls in total since picking it up 2weeks ago as having too much fun opening it up giving it some welly listening to the turbo etc ! I am only doing local stuff an not done any distance steady driving yet to see what it does on a range as not working at the mo , if i was doing my old job and the 43 round trip i expect it would be doing low 40's like my old s1600 of mixed driving .

I topped it up yesterday and reset the trip with it saying 305 on the range as hadn't done a true reading until then as forgot to reset the trip since taking delivery but that crept up wen i popped out on a 30 odd mile blast with some slow stuff in 30/40mph zones to a 315 range to empty .

Pretty good still though for a 1.6 turbo, my friends vxr corsa only gets like 21 mpg (but it is a vauxhall after all ;) )

Defo tempted by one of these after reading what people have said about them, if not il just go for the new ZS

Yes it is good as i had 2 focus st 225's an they only did low 20's , i was going to get the new st250 and was saving up for 2yrs but things weren't that good at work so i held off and waited for the fiesta st .
I was going to get the Zs as its a good buy an good on fuel but i would of proberbly spent money remapping it etc so that would of been a waste plus looking at it spec'd up it was'nt far short of the st on price adding full leather etc but i am lucky in that my dad is a ford pensioner so i get good discount , ford recently upped the discount on the fiesta to employees an i get the same off a fiesta as i do off a focus :)
The St is a completely different beast to my 59plate Zs and s1600 feeling more solid plus the interior looks nicer being dark , my s1600 was a combination of greys and silver as the dash was 2 colours as was the seats being grey with the steering wheel being black leather so it looked like a miss match of bits !
I noticed the difference between my Zs and s1600 power wise an handling an then got the st and Wow what a car :) harder and firmer ride being abit jiggly at speed bobbing up an down like a go kart and the acceleration an torque make it a great overtaking tool leaving others behind thinking they can keep up .

Yeah thats what im thinking, like i like my mk7 zs now and if i get the new zs im sure il love that too but after a while i'll probs wish i had the extra speed and went for the ST, so im kind of torn at the moment lol. So i could pay a bit more for the ST but want to keep it longer as it has the fancy interior and the speed

Thats good then , mine cost £46 more going from my s1600 but there again i am with Ford insure and they can be quite expensive .

 

I went out for a blast yesterday and a mk6 zetec s decided he wanted to have a play :) too much traffic about thou for that an i got rather angry as he was too close on one occassion as i short shifted from 1st to 2nd before planting my right foot in 2nd , he gave his the billy big nuts in first nearly ramming into me ! I was going to plant my right foot as we were pulling out on a busy main road but he was over eager wanting to undertake on a short dual carraige way before a roundabout but it was a no contest as the st is far quicker once into its stride , he only caught me as i  had to stop at the roundabout with him having a run at me up the inside but wen it was clear i planted it an was soon in front before he turned off left .

The st is bringing lots of smiles without having to try too hard as you have to adpat and use the torque just like i did in my old st225 focus but with better fuel consumption as mine is now returning over 30mpg and still rising with it saying 340 on a tank range :)

Its a good quote you got as i am 49 and paid £331 for my s1600 with protected no claims an had to pay an addtional £44 for 7 months thats left till renewal for the st which was better than i thought plus i get loading as rolled my focus st225 3 odd years ago and they still add that on my policy for a further 2 yrs so i pay a lttle bit extra for that claim .

 

Only thing i find in the st is the seats and ride is too firm after a while with me being an old git with a bad back ,it is why i gave up riding 1000cc sports bikes in 2006 as my neck an back couldn't take being hunched over the hand bars .
