    This! Same thing that happened with the B13 Sentra SE vs SE-R, more parts will be available for us because of it.

    I don't really see the big deal. Ford always had something like the ST-line in Europe, either it was the Zetec-S or ST-Line. In the US, there were a few different appearance packages for the regular Fiesta. They had ST skirts, ST spoiler, chin spoiler, and a different rear diffuser. I have never seen one on the streets, but they were on display at auto shows. Ford also did the same thing with the Focus Mk1's. There was the SAP, Street Appearance Package, that had a spoiler, skirts, different bumpers, and different wheels. Very few of these cars had any performance upgrades.

    For the most part, people would rather have the looks rather than the performance. So many complaints about harsh ride, poor MPG, need for premium fuel, uncomfortable seats, lack of an automatic, and torque steer. These people should never even consider a ST, but they do and they complain. Ford just responds to the market by giving people the look of performance without having to give any performance. It is no different than any SUV. People want the look that they could go off-road without actually going off-road or dealing with the compromises that come from driving an off-road vehicle on the road. People just want the image.

    At first I was like "Ok, why not, it can be good looking, and the base model has a good platform to be "sporty", throw the 1.0EB and why not"

    And then I was like:
    "No 1.0EB? yeah fuck that shit"

    Then I remembered that they basically killed the 1.0EB in north America for the Fiesta, because fuck us every single way.

    Gotta say though that this green with the black roof and the black wheels is mean looking.

    I hope they could do something special for the 2019 FiST and not just ST200 special, but something even better. Maybe 2018 RS special (without the crazy price tag), like... a factory LSD? I believe the new FiST in Europe is same transmission... so it could be plug and play, no?

    One can hope.

    I just read that and I gotta say I agree. Ford just seems to be floundering with no real goal or trajectory. They need to get it together and quick, cause the times, they a changing.

    I guess they had some leftover parts to get rid of.

    All auto makers since the 80's use just in time parts systems. They don't stock pile things . Inventory is taxed .

    The weird thing is they still offer the 1.0 in the Focus. How hard would it be to have it in the Fiesta, since they've already done it for the Americas? That would be preferable to the base motor.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZH9mhJ-m9D0 Go to 13:15 for the reasons why it's the better motor.

    I doubt they'll do anything special for the FiST. They're just winding it down, and gearing up for something else. The fine folks in Cuautitlán need to do something in that big factory, or they'll end up looking like Flint.
    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! Okay. just one other thing: A mountune RMM. Now I really am done, I promise!

    Curious.

    The one poster who was regular for a time, and would be happy with this news, has had all of his threads (and posts?) deleted.
    He had threads such as:
    "Who would want to see a Fiesta Sedan ST?"
    "2nd gear departing from a stop?"
    "Increase spring travel?"

    Don't recall the name of the poster, but he had post after post, wanting less power, soft ride, better fuel economy, taller gearing, etc. He liked the styling of the ST, but that was all. So this is right up his alley... a 1.0L Fiesta {poser} ST.
