    What size front bar did the ST200 get (so that I can measure mine when it shows up and see if it matches).

    What exactly is meant by "cheapened dampers" in the later (2016) built cars in the list a few posts above??

    I'd save yourself the time. I'm pretty sure that change was just on the Euro-spec ST.

    That was from Post#7. The poster said he'd read of some blown dampers on '16's, and wondered if Ford had changed suppliers to cut costs. It appeared he was just speculating on that. I wrote down all changes and improvements that people mentioned. Some were confirmed, some were ones people just wondered about from things they'd read or from the feel of their car. This was in the second category.

    Finally, I found a real mid year mechanical change. My wife and I both drive 2016 fiST's. Mine was a Dec '15 build and hers was built July '16. After measuring, hers has a 21mm front bar and mine has the 19mm bar. Suspension was "softened" says some posts around here but I sure can't tell, even back to back driving. It's hard to tell them apart. You really have to take turns near the limit and even then it's not always apparent. My vote is it's an improvement all be it a very small one. She got it not long ago, I'll report back once I get more seat time in. Can you imagine.... she always wants to drive it!

    Instant read MPG seems to have been added at some point, there is a thread where an earlier owner says he'd like to have it, and a '16 owner noted that his car did. My '16 has it.

    Bump to see if anyone knows of any more changes, especially in light of the recent recall for cooling issues on some earlier ST's.

    Didn't the front bar upgrade for 2016+ come from the standard Fiesta, which is a 22mm bar?

    Hey i felt like chiming in to say that my 2014 with recaros are heated and it cycles. I really like how it does it. Gets intense for a second then starts the cool down.
