My Son's Ordered A Fiesta St3

13 August 2014 - 07:24 PM

So my son has been to our local Ford dealer today and placed his order for a Frozen white ST3. He's got it on a 3 year options deal and is trading in his 57 reg Clio Sport 197.

 

We are now a dual Fiesta ST family, just my daughter to convert now (she wants a MK6 ST). They should look good on the drive together. Not certain on delivery date but that should be confirmed in the next couple of days.

 

We are already planning mods and I've told him he will have to sign up to FOC.

 

One question for any other ST3 owners is about puddle lights in the mirrors. Does it have these as the brochure is not very clear one bit says it does other that it doesn't? Dealer didn't think it had them so if anyone can clarify he'd be grateful.

 

Look out for pictures in a few weeks.

I am really p****d with myself shows up so much with alloy being grey. Getting quotes in and probably going to cost me about £50-£60 to fix

Painting St Engine Cover

08 July 2014 - 08:07 PM

Hi guys I remember seeing a photo of a mk7.5 ST on here somewhere where the guy had painted the engine cover to match the body colour.

Anyone have any suggestions for best way to do this? I'm guessing it will need plastic primer and heat resistant paint but can I buy that in the same colour as my car, sprit blue?

Want To Join The Yorkshire / M1 South Ford Fair Convoy?

03 July 2014 - 06:42 PM

OK guys with just a month to go I thought I would plan a Yorkshire FOC convoy down to Ford Fair this year to see if anyone is interested. If anyone from Yorkshire wants to join and drive down please reply to this post with details of your car model and colour and where you will be joining from the list below. If we can get a fair few cars it should make a decent convoy on the M1. Even if you are not going to be on the FOC stand you are more than welcome to drive down with us.

Now don’t forget there are lengthy road works south of Sheffield that last for about 20 miles with average speed cameras set at 50MPH. In order for us to get on the FOC stand we need to make sure we arrive at Silverstone by no later than 7.30-8 am. My plan is to head straight down the M1 to J15A and onto the A43 to the circuit. There is a McDonalds just before the circuit which should be a good place to grab some breakfast if we have enough time.

To be sure we arrive in plenty of time I suggest we only wait for around 10 minutes at each stop, so if you want to join make sure you arrive early and park up near the car park entrance so we can see you when we arrive.

So planned meeting points so far;

Wooley Edge services southbound 5.00 to 5.10am.

Woodhall services southbound 5.40 to 5.50am

Leicester Forest East southbound 6.50 to 7am

 

If any other areas are arranging to meet and travel down the M1 we can always meet you somewhere and if anyone has any suggestions for additional meeting points let me know and I can add them in. I look forward to meeting you all and having a great day out.
