I pushed for 10k on my S1600, I got it!  ;)

The day i ordered my new one i wasn't even in my s1600 and the dealer just gave me £9750 for mine , i did pop the next with my dirty car for him to look at an plus it had a dent an scratch on the bonnet from stone but he was'nt worried about that or the fact i was taking my spare and jack out !

I cleaned it inside and out wen i handed it over an he commented that he should of offered me more for it as it was gleaming , i noticed its on autotrader for now £11,995 on there forecourt  , so they will make nice profit on it !!!

Well had a Fiesta metal for 5mths, and was impressed by it.Walked into my local show room last week and the new ST in Molten Orange was sat looking at me, decided that was a the car me, so did a deal and purchased it.

 

The ST is AWESOME :D  

 

 

 

You have to drive this car, words do not do it justice.If your getiing one you will not be dissapointed.

 

First Molten Orange woohoo!

 

As nice as the other colours are, if they offer orange - it has to be orange!

 

Discovered that i had a symposer on my focus too with the same engine, it comes alive at 5000rpm - i hope it sounds even louder in the fiesta  :D

Yep its loud lol use to think my st225 sounded nice but think the fiesta sounds better an has a real throaty growl to it from 4,500/5000rpm and kinda howls , will sound better if mountune do a filter like the one they just brought out for the new focus st250 as it also looks the part too :)

Glad to hear that you had some fun in it! That is what that car is all about!  ;) As for the noise I am with you, to hear the turbo noise and dump valve fluttering is addictive  :P  :D My dad has a MK 1 RS and he is surprised what the performance figures of the Fiesta ST compared to his  ;)

YES!!! Been waiting to see someone post about the sound! Been waiting for mine around 2 weeks so got a little while to wait yet  :( did test drive one but didnt want to really push it with the dealer in the car so glad someone has posted to say you can hear the turbo and the dump valve!! I WANT MINE NOW!!!!

So happy to have found this thread and talking about the sound! Been waiting 2 weeks for my ST2 now so got a little while to wait yet. Found the perfect road near me to take it on the first night I get it! So jealous and so impatient to get mine!!!

You guys are making me so jealous! My dealer is getting one in this week for me to have a test drive. Will then depend on the deal he comes up with I suspect no one seems to have a bad word for the ST.

Hi, Im awaiting delivery of an ST as well but you know what's annoying? the ZS has glossy black lower grille's and the ST does not!!!!! WHY??? it makes no sense and the ZS lower grille looks much nicer in gloss black in my opinion. What do you think?

Just out of interest, how does the ST2 compare with the Metal? I think if I had anything quicker I'd be too tempted to race around and take risks too often, but that's just me. For a non-turbo the Metal pulls fairly quite well from low engine speeds , and packs enough punch when you floor it in second or third gear. I'm guessing the ST2 is a different beast altogether! I still prefer the look of the Metal though without the facelift front end, and prefer the black alloys you get on the Metal.

I just dropped it in while I had it wrapped, they did it for £10 per piece of plastic on the grilles, didn't complain about it being difficult at all.

ok fair enough, might have a go at removing them myself and see how easy it is, for that price you can't really complain as you get a much better finish that doing it with a rattle can in the back garden!  :P

I hadn't driven mine all week until today and did have some fun in it :) i had the window down and heard the turbo whooshing , its a lovely sound an you just want to rev it more and more ! Every one looks at you wen you are driving about as i see 2 focus st225's out today and one crept up behind me so i waited until the national speed limit appeared an cogged it ito 3rd from 40 an just blasted away , he didn't want to play thou unless he didn't want to embarass himself :D

Stock for stock - the Focus ST225 is faster than the Fiesta ST2, although the 0-60 is similar, the 225 would "have the legs" on (be quicker than) the ST2 at higher speeds  (in a hypothetical , off road race, of course)
