I might as well start an introduction and brief history of the cars I've owned.

Over the short period I've been driving I've owned may Ford's. Most have been Fiesta's with the odd Vauxhall thrown in. In 2010 i owned my favourite car, a Profomance Blue Focus ST3. Anyone that's ever owned a 5 pot Volvo powered Ford will know they make an awesome noise. 

After saying goodbye to the fuel hungry Focus I went back to the Fiesta and the new 1.0 Ecoboost 125ps version. In fact I had 2 in 4 years. You all know what I did to the little fiesta mods wise and had loads of fun doing it. I planned on keeping my Titanium X for a while but as usual Ford release something I like and I get distracted. This new distraction was the sudden announcement of a 5 door Fiesta ST in the UK. To me this was the one car I always wanted as a 5 door option and I'd been waiting 10 years for it to happen. With this news I rushed down to my nearest dealer with a wad full of cash.

Fast forward 8 weeks and the new ST is nearly here and only 2 weeks to go. On order is one of the first firsta 5 door ST3's in the UK. I went for Spirit Blue out of the 5 colour options available.

I've already started collecting part, some from my Titanium and some from Facebook / Internet.

While I'm waiting for the car to arrive I might as well list the things I have planned for when it arrives. So here goes....

First thing strangely will be the wheel center caps. Ford decided that this year everyone will get black center caps. I'm getting spirit blue so want blue.

Next on the list is mist / fan washer jets. I personally love them so decided to get some new ones. there only £4 so why not.

I have an ST space saver wheel but not the correct retaining bolt or foam padding so there also to be added to the ST. it will come with the inflator but don't plan on using that.

5 door sill plates from EBay next. personally think these should have been provided considering its an ST 3.

I still kept my Mountune airbox from the Titanium and will be sticking it in the ST too. to compliment that I've purchased a Mountune induction hose from our friends on Facebook. Also purchased were 2 hose clips.

Airbox.

Obviously a map is planned and the MP215 kit is gunna be my choice. because of my many purchases from mountune I've been offered a very reduced rate.

Possible gunna add the Mountune Gator again.

Last on the initial list is a foot rest. I've seen loads and can't decide on a style yet. personally I might change the pedals to the older ones (spots) and get a plate to match. any ideas would be welcome.

Well that's it for now so keep comming back for updates. I'll put up some links to the mods so far and add piccies.

Thanks for reading

I was wondering why I saw you selling parts from the titanium online! So just to clarify the new car is a Fiesta ST180 5 door in Spirit Blue? Or have I read that wrong :) Either way will be good to see another build thread

Yep that's it mate. As soon as I herd there was a 5 door comming I was strait down the dealership.

Glad I picked spirit blue and looking forward to collecting it.

It does look good when done, you also need the airbag light trim 1803487. 

You can get gloss black air vents from a mk7 metal edition, I've sent a nav screen surround to PAINTMODZ to be sprayed gloss black.

Nice one Mark never thought of  the vent rings. May also get the stearing wheel trim black if it's available with cruise.

Focus 6sp gear knob also on the list now to carry on the black theme.

Part No's 1798600

Unfortunately they only sell the trim with the steering wheel which is a pain, I wrapped my last one which was ok but not as good as the OE finish.

the vents are about £25, I've got the part number somewhere.

Bet a black trim steering wheel with cruise will be impossible to find. 

I'll be interested in the air vents if you find the part numbers 👍

Whats the difference with the mist jets? I noticed the link you posted is for Focus non heated ones. Your new ST3 ones will be heated though so are you sacrificing that for a different spray pattern? Im wondering what jets i have on my 2012 Focus Zetec S now but as im hungover and its cold outside i will have to check later.:smile:

Fiestas don't have heated washer jets, your focus will have mist jets, fiestas just have 2jets of water so the mist gives better coverage.

Ah, thanks for that. Surprising though, especially with the cost of the ST. Youve saved me getting off the settee with a bad head to check mine thank you!:laugh:

I'd be keen to know the black vent part numbers too. I bought black gel stickers from DMB but they seem a bit small.

Its alive, albeit with a very bad hair style!:laugh:

I love reading these build threads but also hate them as they make me want to tinker with mine. Our 8 month old baby put a stop to that!:laugh:

Have you got the ST now Willy or still waiting? Must be any day now if not already.

It's always good to have pictures of when it was completely standard, when do the mods start? Pick up +1 hour.

whats that on the passenger floor?

Got to love Ford's thinking "shall we put some protection on the car for when it's being transported? "Good idea, just on the back wheels though"

If I'm aloud I'll do some if not all on Thursday before pickup 😆

As for the carpet it looks like mud. After its given a good clean and the mats are in it'll be fine.

I just guessed all the wheels were covered but your probably right.
