Frozen White MK7.5 ST3 - White Panther


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My names Jason, I'm 23 and live in Burton, Staffordshire. I'm new to the forum but have previously been a member of Zetec S Owners Club & Fiesta STOC.

First off a brief history of my car past. My first car was a MK7 Fiesta Zetec S Metal Edition!

Next up, was a Panther Black Fiesta ST3 (MP215)

Due to my circumstances changing, having to do a lot of long distance driving, I had to sell her :( and get a MK3 1.6 TDCI Focus Zetec. Got me from A to B and a solid reliable car all round. Had a surprising amount of talk and felt more powerful than 115 BHP, and the gear box actually felt really nice. But it was just too slow and boring for my liking, so as soon as I was able to I got rid of that.

And so that leads me to now, my new beaST, a Frozen White Fiesta ST3 with ALL the trimmings!

Collection Day:

So I plan on keeping this car for quite a while (until I can eventually afford a MK3 Focus RS - my next goal!)

More Pics after her first clean:

I was going to go with Mountune to keep the warranty...but it's a 65 plate and only has 1 1/2 years left on it...so by the time I have the Mountune stuff done, it will be out of warranty anyway. So I plan on going with REVO instead. My overall goal is to have Stage 4 w/ Hybrid Turbo.

That being said, my first performance mod may still be the MP215 kit as well as the Mountune Exhaust as I think they both finish the car off nicely and will keep me going till the warranty runs out.

So in the mean time it will be mostly cosmetic mods + MP215 and Mountune Cat Back.

First thing I did was have the front lip wrapped matte black with a red pin stripe. I think this looks great on the white and makes the front look a lot more aggressive.

Next up, I swapped the front headlights for white 6000k bulbs. I will eventually be getting HIDs installed but this was just to keep me going until I order a full HID Kit. I will also be replacing the Fog lamp bulbs with white 6000Ks.

(Haven't got a good picture of these yet but when I do I'll post one)

Next I added my Leather ST seatbelt covers from my last ST. Haven't got a pic of these either yet but when I do I'll add to the post.

I also added a ST badge logo in the void on the steering wheel as I'll be getting a cover eventually and that would cover up the logo already on the wheel.

Think I'm gonna swap with for the black gel one from DMB eventually though.

Next one is gonna be a marmite mod, I can tell. Ordered these decals from eBay. Everyone so far loves them but I imagine some wouldn't.

And finally today, my Team Heko wind deflectors came. I added a red pin stripe, but not sure if I'm gonna keep it or not yet....I haven't decided if I like it or not...thoughts?

So that's where she stands at the moment! I have some white LEDs coming Monday for the number plate and interior lights so I'll update when they are fitted as well as get some pics of the exterior lights and seat belt covers.

Thanks for looking guys! I'll be keeping this thread updated when more mods happen. Got big plans for this car in the future and I'm really looking forward to achieving them and having you all involved! Any feed back is much appreciated :)

- J

So here is a small update. Some of the bulbs have been replaced. Didnt realise the front reading light had a third centre bulb that was different to the others so I've had to order that should be here tomorrow along with a few more W5Ws to do the boot and front lights along with the W6W. Some before and after pics:

Before:

I'll get some better pics when I have done the rest of the bulbs tomorrow! :)

liking the bulb change

Thanks :) Didn't go for too bright as I still wanted it to feel 'cosy' in the cabin but it really does make a massive difference and looks very nice. For sub £20 its such a cheap, easy upgrade that makes a HUGE difference. I'll be posting more pics today when the last bulb arrives for the front centre light as well as getting pics of the external lughts and seat belt covers

Can you confirm your ST steering wheel controls have blue lights? I thought STs had red lights for switches and guages? Thanks.
