    Hi from Oregon

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello everybody,
    I dont have a fiesta yet, but Im sure I will have one soon, especially after seeing how much these are capable of.
    I'm envisioning shipping a FiST across to Siberia and going round the world on some suspension, and of course the extended warranty. jk the world yes, albeit heavily modded

    My question to you all though is, are you happy with the 1st gen FiST, 13?-17? Enough to justify a used purchase with a lot of miles, salvaged title, etc?
    Or should I just get a new 2018 and wait for engine mods? etc.

    Either way, I'm getting a FiST and eventually making one as rally sprc as possible.

    Some background on myself, I've owned a bunch of random cars with like minded friends whom i took auto shop in highschool with, then bough a few street bikes, which Im selling for a FiST

    Heres a list of my random projects:

    *Fave babe*
    2003 WRX ~280whp/wtq: 16g@19psi 3300rpmkick, 720cc injectors, Top Mount Inter cooler(yuge), walboro? fuel oump, full cobb custom tune by a dude jon, tein coilovers tein front strut brace, 5zigen fn10rc (really light)s, 245 17 40 tires, we rode a lot of dirt roads jumpin yahtzee

    1985 5.0 Mustang: comp cams, x pipe, flowmaster, ford racing posi rear, 3.73 gears , real fun last year carbureted

    1965 el camino 350 only 2bbl but fun classic

    1964 ford ranchero w/1968 mustang 302 engine

    1978 dodge b100 w/ a slant six that was a beast of a shaggin wagon travel cruiser

    and currently I drive a 2007 aveo 5s and an r6 while working on a gsxr 750 and cbr f3.

    So thats where I'm from and why I sure as hell want to get a nice rally FiST ASAP. I'm heading in tomm to talk to the dealer and test drive one, maybe even a focus for fun.

    Welcome!

    There are some owners here with some high mileage FiSTs that are still running fine, even with a lot of mods. I love the rally cars. Look at what mountune has done with them for some inspiration.

    2017 Magnetic, everything but the Recaros. MP 215, mountune shift kit and shift knob, Husky floor liners. That's all I'm doing, I swear!.. OK, I lied. Also added an intake hose and symposer delete. But that really is all, I swear this time!

    Welcome to another Oregonian! I was shopping around Portland in December and couldn't get anybody to really negotiate on price much. But St. Helens Ford had a great deal on the one I bought. Unfortunately, they don't have any more Fiestas. They do have a white Focus ST, without Recaros for around 20k, which I think is a killer deal, but not a Fiesta :( They also have a red Focus RS.
    2017 Magnetic w/ Smoke Storm Recaros, Black Wheels, Painted Calipers, Cravenspeed "The Stubby Antenna", Ford ST Rubber Floor Mats, no-pistons Dead Pedal, Matte Black Rimstock Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 15x8 wheels, Nitto Neo Gen All-Season 205/50R15 89V XL tires, Black Gorilla Automotive 21133BC 12mm x 1.5" Lugs, XPEL Ultimate Full Front Clear Bra, XPEL Prime HP 30% Window Tint, Yellow Lamin-X Fog Light Covers, Auxbeam F-16 Series LED Fog Light Bulbs, Gloss Red AWR 88a Rear Engine Mount, Swift R-Spec Springs, Bilstein B8 Dampers.

    Planned Build: Damond Oil Catch Can, Depo Racing 3" Intercooler, RAMAir Drop-in Air Filter, Cobb Accessport V3 w/ Stratified 93 tune, Pierce 2-Point or 4-Point Front Lower Brace.

    Just bought mine with black wheel option for $18k at Damerow Beaverton, there are tons of deals out there... to get the exact one I wanted (Magnetic w/black wheels, no other options) they had to pull it from Salem and will be in tomorrow night... But for someone who wanted Recaro's they could be had for prob $20k or less.

    OP: There are lots of deals on '17's either 0% interest or $3k rebates plus discounts... The '18 literally only adds the rear camera by law, literally nothing else and there are very few out there but they are dealing '17's for well over $1000 off on top of those factory incentives, it's a great way to get a new little pocket rocket!
