Mk 7.5 rear bumper - st 3 rear bumper


Recommended Posts

I have a regular fiesta mk 7.5 rear bumper and going to buy a st 3 rear bumper I'm just wondering if it will fit and I looked around seems like I would need to invest into a new exhaust?

Some owners have fitted an ST back box with an adaptor, others have gone for an aftermarket twin pipe exhaust but I'm sure I've seen a couple of threads where owners have simply found a suitable twin exhaust trim and fitted that to the existing exhaust, eg:

ah hopefully I can fit a trim not bothered about the exhaust but would you know if the st 3 rear bumper would fit straight on or should I get someone to fit it for me instead of doing it myself?

If I remember right, the basic bumpers are the same, all that needs to be changed is to fit the ST upper/lower valence, plus the "spats". Lots of useful info in this thread:

You will be bothered about the exhaust when you realise how silly it looks lol. I'm pretty sure the exhaust can rub on the ST diffuser and melt it a bit if you don't get it altered.

I doubt it would melt the diffuser the exhaust is a bit bent like an elaphants ***** 😆

That doesn't mean the hot metal exhaust pipe can't rub on the side of the diffuser. It could be bent 180 degrees and make no difference.

I've seen a boy selling an St exhaust might go pick it up today but would  i need any welding etc done for it or could I just do it myself?

See page 10 of the first thread I posted the link to. (Initially used a 45 to 55mm adaptor sleeve with clamps and exhaust paste, subsequently had it welded.)
