    I have many plans for this car. As a person who keeps their cars and am not the typical person to have it for 2 years and then sell it I plan this one for the long haul.

    2017 Fiesta ST brand new
    Platinum White Tri-Coat.
    Recaro pkg.
    Nav.
    ST protection pkg.

    Short story of the car so far and about me. It has 15 miles on it when I took it for a test drive at lunch(miles are pretty much from them transporting it from a dealer across town to mine). Ended up having 73 miles on it when I brought it home and went for a drive. I'm a Ford Master Tech and have test driven Focus ST's and Fiesta ST's numerous times and still to this day prefer the Fiesta ST over the Focus. I'm single and have a comfortable living so I really have no use for the extra space that the Focus offers. Plus when I put my front seat to my desired position I can still sit behind myself in the back seat which says alot since I am 6'4".

    I'll update this original post with mods that I already have done. At the moment I have some sitting in my room but haven't put on yet. Will update when I can think of a few more things, which I'm sure I could.

    Mods:

    Performance:
    -Thermal R&D 3" cat-back
    -GFB DV+ Diverter valve
    -Cobb V3 AP

    -RAMAIR filter

    -Whoosh 3" catless downpipe w/Thermal 3" downpipe adapter
    -AET Motorsports VuDu short throw shifter 25% reduction
    -Damond Motorsports OCC
    -2013-2015 Evap Intake line swap
    -Whoosh Induction Tube(black)
    -Mountune Radiator
    -Ford Motorcraft 180 T-Stat

    Suspension, brakes, wheels, & tires:
    -Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2s 17x8 et38mm High Power Silver
    -MeisterR Coilovers
    -OEM 205/40/17 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s
    -Focus SVT rear brake upgrade
    -Stoptech Big Brake Kit(red calipers)
    -Stoptech stainless steel lines front & rear


    Appearance:

    -LED interior lights/plate lights
    -20% window tint

    Looking good, I'll get the MeisterR ZetaCRD coilovers out to you ASAP.
    Let us know how it feels once you installed it. :)

    What size tires are you putting on the 1.2s?

    I ask because I have 215/40-17 RS-RRs (one of the wider tread widths in that size, but not the widest) on a set of ET 42 17x8 1.2s, and there is about as much 'poke' out to the fender edges as I would EVER want (like even 2 mm more would be WAY too much). ;)

    Going to be using the oem 205 Michelins for now until I wear those out. Of the pictures I've seen of 17x8 with the 38mm offset with 205s it should be perfect.

    Woke up at 7am to go install the Thermal exhaust Sunday. I LOVE the sound. There is ZERO drone when at highway speeds but when you get on it this thing roars! It has a bark and bite to it now! I polished it up with Eagle One Nevr Dull polish prior to install. I can see why some do not like the tips because of the very minor burnt look they have on them but I don't mind it.

    I would recommend another hand with this. It wasn't much trouble for me but I have access to a 4 post lift and used the hydraulic jacks on that to help support the exhaust when getting the clamps loosely on.

    There where no instructions with the exhaust but I just went off pictures that @ron@whoosh had on his thread and its pretty straight forward. The only "issue" I had with fitment was the clamp in the third picture. The exhaust butts together so its not a slip-on and when trying to line it up the exhaust wouldn't line up evenly. I finally decided to try something and when I lined it up the best I could I tightened down the clamp and it lined the exhaust up perfectly in the process and fixed that "issue." I don't think thats really and issue because I'm sure thats how its supposed to be done.

    I am all for a Thermal DP if they decide to make one.

    Another note. I ordered the GFB DV+ diverter valve which is coming in today. Dropped the car off last night for window tint.

    Diverter valve arrived! It's a quality piece of kit. Even the packaging is fantastic
