Hi all just looking for a few opinions from the knowledgable fiesta owners in the world of the FOC.
I'm thinking about upgrading my little basic seats to the half leathers from an ST (mk6) like these.... F36861F0-E920-4525-A28F-05D97395760F-943

What I'd like to know is it frowned upon if I fit ones with the ST badge just that the ones without the badges don't come along as often.
Just so we're clear, I'm in no way shape or form trying to "pretend I have an ST" I would just like to upgrade my interior, that's all.
Thanks in advance for any comments.... Good or bad, but honesty is a must :-)
Cheers

like the style but i wouldn't get ST ones, its like when people get the nurburgring sticker and have never been.

 

why not get your seats reupholstered and have (ford) instead of st???

 

this is just my opinion

Cheers for the comment ollie, and I think the same as you, especially with the nurburgring sticker (grrrrrrr lol) I'm trying to locate and buy the seats on a budget and I think it'd be expensive to reupholster, is the badge part of the main skin or is it just stitched or bonded on? Or do you think its possible just to reupholster the little section the badge is on?

I'm assuming you could reupholster the section which the st sits in (but as it would be a new material it would stick out)

Yeah that's true, I reckon I could live with that more than the ST badge,.... It is for an 8 year old car so doesn't really have to be perfect.

The black ones look minted dan, and if I was more flush with cash I might have made a few bids on them, but I have a "tonight only" chance of half leather with blue inserts for 150.... Can't walk away from that offer

I looked into reupholstering the whole of my Fiesta interior to a full leather and got quoted $2300, 1300pounds (keep in mind im in Australia) and then I asked what if i did part leather, and the gentleman told me there isn't much difference in cost because they still need to unstitch the whole seat to get the centre part out and then restitch all of it. Your paying for man hours

 

I have toyed with the idea of ST seats but then remembered the ST is 3dr only and like you thought ST in my car would look silly.
