    Hi from San Francisco

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hi all,
    New to the forum and don’t actually have a Fiesta (yet) but very keen to find a recent one in molten orange exterior. Used to own a mk6 golf TDI that I parted with post ‘dieselgate’. Loved that car. Wasnt fast but could be fun on the twisties and the mileage was awesome.

    After giving up the VW, I needed a car for the work commute and have been driving my parent’s 08 Camry hybrid for the past 2 years. When I first got the hybrid, the ride was just scarily unacceptable after having the golf. The thing would trip the ABS on every damp road coming to a stop sign, had body roll like a van. Actually went so far as to get some BCR coilovers which helped make the car handle decently for basic driving, lol. The older tech hybrid just doesn’t give the same fuel economy as newer stuff (I average 29mpg On my mixed commute) and it’s just a booooooring car overall.

    Anyway, have been missing hatch life and have long toyed with the idea of Gti/golf r but recently have been looking seriously at the fiesta after a friend of mine got a focus ST.

    Just a Q about the interior options, I once saw an orange fiesta for sale with grey recaros. Is that something the owner likely swapped themselves or was that color combo an official option? I am lukewarm on the orange recaros but like them a lot more than the cloth option (or the plaid seats of the GTI for that matter).

    Can’t wait to delve into the knowledge base this forum has to offer!

    Cheers
    Geoff

    Welcome and yes to answer your question...
    You can order the car with The Smoke Storm Recaros(Grey) or the the Molten Orange Recaros. They are option vs base the seats. I ordered my 2018 Orange Spice with the Smoke Storm Recaro’s.

    A lot of the dealers order the Molten Orange cars with Molten Orange Recaros because they matched. Then Ford stopped offering Moltem Orange and Started offering Orange Spice and dealers kept on ordering Molten Orange seats and it looks off. Hence what I ordered.

    Just took a test drive in an ‘18 FiST and had some good fun...I’m pretty shy and didn’t want to terrify my salesperson with harder driving. Also a shame my local Ford ‘ship isn’t near any twisty roads at all.

    The other shame was that I think I knew more about the car than the salesperson. So, I’m turning back to you all: any major changes between model years 14-18? The car I drove today had a reverse camera, which is something I didn’t know was available. (It’s not on my criterion for purchase)
