Haha, I love it how these threads always turn into a battle between the ST fraternity and the ZS fraternity! Makes me giggle every time! Why can't people just have mutual respect for fellow Fiesta owners?
There are SOME ZS owners who underestimate how fast the ST actually is. However, with comments like these, it does make me wonder whether SOME ST owners think their car is the best/fastest car on the planet?!...
Wes - Whilst there may be some who don't, I think you'll find most ZS owners actually do know just what a "power house" (your term, not mine!) the ST is!... However, "better all round" is very subjective, and statements like this are where a lot of the disagreements stem from! - It shows a total lack of appreciation for why other people choose a particular car/model.
Matt, be careful what you wish for, because whilst you may be able to "show up" a few ZS drivers, there are MANY cars out there that will "show up" your ST (and I am in the very fortunate position to own a few myself - but you won't find me bragging about them on here!), so be careful about your own bragging!
Get a little bit of perspective people - The ST is faster than the ZS. Fact.
The fiesta does tend to appeal to younger people, so to many the ST is by far the fastest car they have ever driven (and in some cases may well be the fastest car they ever will drive). But, at the end of the day it is just a hot hatch, and there are many much faster cars out there, so don't get carried away!
To avoid any confusion, I myself have a ZS on order, but I do think that the ST is a fantastic car in it's own right. I test drove the ST, and loved the power delivery. Some people consider a car that is faster than another to be "better". Other people don't and they choose a car for many other reasons. Simple as that.
I think the ST is an absolutely fantastic car, and one would probably find it's way into my money-no-object dream garage (although not in the top 10!... Yes, I have a VERY large dream garage!).
Respect to anyone who has an ST. Also, respect to anyone who has any other model in the Fiesta range. Peace!
can we have this post at the top of the Fiesta forum page please...?
Oh yeah! I used to deal with the Polar Ford down Stockport - their front desk people werent too great for service!
Man, around June time when i picked mine up last year there were none available for test drives! i dont think they anticipated the demand to be so high compared to the Focus ST. I had to order blind 3 months beforehand
Hey man, did you ever see this thread by any chance? We were just discussing this the other week!
Let us know how it goes, doesnt appear to have been done on here yet! I'm intrigued as a previous owner too
