In Topic: Comparison Of Old St And New St

10 April 2014 - 01:33 PM

Great comparison Dave! Proved for a much better read than my Commercial Law text book


How have you found the quality of the interior of the new ST compared to the old? When I get out of my normal mk6.5 and into my friends normal 7, I just feel that the plastics aren't as nice for some reason. They just feel a bit flimsier. Maybe it is just our shoddy Thai built versions in Australia and we were lucky enough to get German built 6.5's.


And as you said the simplicity of the 6.5's interior is nice. Even 7 years down the track I still find it a nice place to be.

In Topic: Will 17/45/205 Fit On My Fiesta???

What do you mean, what size should you be looking for?


You want an alloys with a PCD of 4x108 so that the studs fit into the alloys.


You can easily fit, 15, 16, 17 inch alloys on your Fiesta. The first two with tyres with a 195 and the latter with a 205 tire width. Side walls can always be changed by going for a lower profile tire if they come with the wrong one.


If you are buying genuine Fiesta alloys it should just be to bolt them on with a balance and you should be on your way, it gets more complex when you go for after market ones because then you need to look at offset, centre hole size and quality (some aftermarket have been known to snap due to bad quality). What is it you are thinking of getting?

The 45 referring to the side wall of the tyre and has nothing to do with the alloy


Buy them and just buy a 205/40/17 tires and you should be fine, thats the size the stock 17' alloy comes with as mat said. I've read that the steering rack limiter is optional but it is like 7 pounds.


What are you currently running? Just make sure you check the speedo error difference on a new alloy size website and adjust your speed as such it is recommended not to go above 5% difference in error though

Detango is easy, all you do is buy clear lenses for the car and replace the bulb with one that flashes orange (I'd suggest going for a white bulb that flashes orange instead of the orange ones). Simplest mod but makes a huge difference

I would buy alloys before the bumper and spoiler, I think am ST bumper and spoiler with hubs would look a bit funny

I agree with the posts above about detango and some alloys, personally I think genuine Ford ones always look best. Maybe see if you can get some colour coded front and rear bumpers, I think that will make a big improvement
