Back!!!

Recommended Posts

Evening all, I said a couple of weeks ago I was looking for an ST and well I've just today purchased this little beauty 

ST-2 Colin's performance CP300 pack - big mouth air intake, forge air intake with pippercross filter, mongoose cat back, and flash tune 

Lowered 20mm, US spec grill, and front splitter not had much done but plenty more to do :) 

 

so I guess I better start a project thread again if anyone saw my fiesta I had a few years back

Looks absolutely stunning! Loving the US spec grill!

One thing I can't help but notice is the bonnet... that gap between it and the bumper seems a little bit big! Looks almost like its not shut properly!

I assumed the picture was taken with the bonnet not closed properly.

Tbh to me it looks like the front end has dropped rather than the bonnet being up.
Look at the angle of the gap above the headlights.

Sent from my SM-G930F

 Cheers for the comments, how would I know if the front has dropped a bit? I see what you mean, and I've got a newer photo defo with the bonnet closed to compare on how it looks

Done some digging there is 2 rubber stops which the bonnet rests on when closed and these can be turned down the gap gets smaller, Ford nearly set them to a standard height during manufacture, so I'll adjust them tomorrow, previous owner either didn't know or from the dealer never questioned it

I bet that will sort the gap issue out 👍🏼

I can see the appeal even though i've never owned an ST and tbh where most cars get more boring with each new design i can happilly say the ST with the exception of the mk2 ( no offence intended to any mk2 owners ) has gained style and character over the years any how the ST-2 has great presence and i can't wait to actually see one one day ..

Welcome back Dan the fiesta is a great car as we both know but the focus just feels more sturdy. I'm sure the power upgrade you've got makes yours a beaST.

Phil, good to be back, yes the focus is a lot more roomy and feels safer, it truly is the fasted car I've own so far, I'd like to compare it to a stock RS see if it could keep up, plenty more room for improvement with it how much performance wise I do will have to see as to me the power is currently more than I can use due to narrow roads etc round my way
