I would definitely be complaining! If it was a specific date and not an estimated date maybe a free services or something :)

I had an issue with my Abarth last year they gave me a specific date and put it back twice so I complained and got a free services :) not bad lol

How much? How are you getting it fitted? Does it require major modification or could it be put back to stock quite easily? Very interested in any pics or videos you post!!!

I got a voucher from there stand from Ford Fair should be £ 540.00 but i'm getting it for £ 439.00 :)

nope assuming its just cut existing off and weld new one on :), but just having a look around for a decent garage to do the work should cost about £80.00 to fit :) and yes can be put back to stock if needs be, but why would you want it back to stock???.

and yeah when it gets fitted ill try and get step by step pictures without getting in there way :)

Well you might wanna put it back to stock.if you only keep it for a year then get a new one on a Ford PCP so need to get a good price on it so you can buy a new one!! ;-) haha!!

Woke up grumpy that my ST isn't here yet so pushed the dealer for more info on its delay. He told me that it definitely is already built and to my spec, It has been checked and that we are just waiting for it to get here. At least its nothing to do with the paint colour or interior etc I am beginning to suspect that next Saturday will be another repeat of it not being here though. Fingers Crossed... I even considered just forgetting the whole thing and going for a Zetec S...just to get into a new car...made worse by the fact the dealer said he had one in white that customer had turned down...but I just know a week later if be trying to find an ST rear splitter etc :P plus nothing beats the sound of that dinky little turbo hiss....I wonder if there is a way to fit a louder blow off valve on it!!!

Ollies122......I WANT MY CAR!!!!!!!!!!! :rolleyes:

buy a fake valve from halfords and fit it to your current car, that'll inject some life into it whilst waiting.

and youre impatient over your current zetec s! some people have corsas to live with...

Maybe you have been waiting 14 weeks but you've waited this long now don't back out for a ZS as the ST is defiantly worth the wait :)

I ordered mid feb, picked up mid June due to a delay - rumour was a shortage in red brake calipers!

do know how you feel though, i was chewing my arm off by that point. as long as i had brakes calipers i didnt care about having them red calipers by that point!

It's because they are getting way more demand than they had anticipated.

The Fiesta ST is getting loads of good press at the moment which means it is selling like hot cakes. Ford have had to increase production rates to try and keep up:

what bulbs are these....?? can i also purchase these/similar without the need of a paypal account?!

sympathies welshy, any idea why? another reason for delays whilst waiting for mine was the release of the B-max and....C-max maybe?! so a lot of cars were sat at port as they couldnt distribute in time to the dealer network...

I guess patience is a virtue and all that. The car is built and checked...just waiting for ford to deliver it. Guess I might as well get it on a 63 plate now even though I wanted it on a 13 plate. But at least if it actually arrives on the 31st aug ill have one of the first 63 plate cars in my town!! The wait is killing me even though I know it will be worth it when I get it!!
