    The 2017 White Platinum Super Modest "JDM" Clean Build

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Well,

    Haven’t even taken delivery of my brand new 2017 White Platinum Fiesta ST yet, so don’t even have pictures of it, but have already ordered my planned super modest daily commuter build items...

    RED - Planned, but not started
    ORANGE - Ordered or in hand, but not installed
    GREEN - Done
    • COBB Access Port V.3
    • 91 octane STratified Flash Tune w/valet, eco, anti-theft slots + STratified TC
    • Mountune Lowering Springs
    • Maxton Front Splitter (v.3 - CF wrapped)
    • Maxton rear spoiler extension (CF wrapped)
    • Boomba Complete Short Shift Kit (sans the bushings)
    • Ford ST Carbon Fiber Shift Knob
    • ST Seat belt pads
    • Stock rims powder coated or plasti-dipped white metallic
    • Yellow tinted fog lights
    • Red Rebel Alliance Fiesta debadge
    • 15% tint b pillar back, 25% front windows
    • ”TheStubby” Shorty antenna
    • Carbon Fiber license plate frames

    I will fill this thread with pictures and impressions as we go, promise!

    Little background - always been a Japanese import guy, specifically Honda, until having lived in Europe (Sweden) for the past 10 years. Now Honda isn’t making anything really tiny that’s fun anymore, and Ford is...kind of a role reversal!!

    So I grew up drooling over this:


    And now I want to recreate that with a better, more fun, and more practical NEW car :)

    I may also end up doing a pro tune or even a Mountune MP215 kit in the future, but plan on feeling this out first before I start doing that stuff on the engine and power side. The short throw shifter kit and lowering springs should put a big enough smile on my face for the time being!

    Looking forward to being a small part of this community!

    First Impressions and pics from delivery!!

    Ok -just took delivery of my car today from Perry Ford in Poway, CA.

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS
    HOLY CRAP! This car is absolutely amazing - Even having test driven 3 examples of this car before, it felt like the very first time! Anywhere about 3k RPM is pure ear to ear stupid grin! A speeding ticket is absolutely INEVITABLE in this car, unfortunately...on an on ramp, you're going 90mph before you even have chance to look down at the speedometer! It absolutely begs you to drive it, and it feels fast at any speed when you are in that turbo torque band between 3-5k RPM's. You simply can't stop doing it!

    I'd never had the chance to actually drive or sit in the Recaro package, so actually took a chance on it, only sitting in the Focus RS and ST to feel how those seats felt. I can safely say that the Recaro package on this car is almost an absolute requirement. It completely transforms the entire character of the interior from an unimpressive econobox type of environment to a very upscale and racy feeling interior. And those seats!! They are 1000% more comfortable than those in the RS and and ST Focus, which were super a super tight fit. I barely fit in those at all (6' tall and 185lbs), but these fit me like a glove and they haven't even been broken in yet! Best decision I made with this car besides actually going ahead and pulling the trigger on it!

    Here come the pics from the delivery bay at Perry Ford - want to whole heartedly endorse and refer anyone in SD looking to buy a Ford to hit up Louis Hardwood at Perry Ford - he was absolutely great.

    Spoiler Extender from Max Designs. Gets a CF wrap and goes on the car on Wednesday. Fitment with it just resting on the rear spoiler looks really good, doesn’t seem to be any issues there.

    Same goes for the front splitter. Gets the CF wrap and installation on Wednesday.

    Went with the V. 3 Max Designs piece. Wasn’t much in it for me between the 3 “non-race” versions they had. Pretty flexible piece, actually. I thought it was going to be way more rigid. Will be interesting to see it actually on the car...
