In Topic: My St3 Is A Genetically Modified St2

That could be an issue with insurance but also a headache for Ford as well as everyone would be blaming them for this fiasco !

I am going to ask the dealer about a new sticker as it should read what we purchased which is an St3 , they have more clout with Ford than we do so we wait an see what the answer will be .

Mine also says St2 on the sticker inside the door and on Etis , i brought this up before taking delivery as it was being discussed on the Fiesta St OC as well ! My salesman and dealer assured me that is it an St3 , but it only states that on my V5 Doc and invoice ?

I have heard that Ford addressed this and any that come thru now show St3 on the sticker , i think it was the first ones to arrive that said St2 .

I will add i felt i got ripped off by my insurance as i changed from an St2 to my St3 and the cost to change was £188.68 ? I thought they were confusing the Fiesta st3 thinking it was Focus St3 asking for that amount to change my insurance but they checked and said that's what we want to change over !!! Bang goes the idea of Mountuning mine now plus i got caught speeding 2 days before collecting my new car so all its been a bad experience buying mine but at least its running nice and better than my St2 was  :)

They are the same but no 2 cars drive the same , i have owned 2 puma's , 4 st170's and 2 St225's and they all drove different to the previous ones !
My new St has a lighter clutch and the gearbox is quieter and slicker than my St2 was , that was an early one and they do improve them as time goes on , don't get me wrong as my St2 was running really nice at the end before getting my new one and perhaps it is that new car feeling and thinking its smoother :)

I feel left out, mine is a 14 plate and doesn't have the new pedals :( seen them on Ford parts though and they are only 24.99 for the set! compared to the older style a lot cheaper.

I think they maybe only on the St3 or i could be wrong ? Most people who have brought St2's in the last couple of months have the old style ones with the bobble rubber grip still , i wasn't sure if i would like the new ones at first when i heard they were coming thru supplied with them on but i seem to drive smoother with them for some reason and like them now :)
I remember when the Mk7 Fiesta came out in 2008 that sport pedals were a £50 option on the Zetec S then in 2009 they were fitted as standard as mine had them back then .
