Hey guys! New owner here from Sacramento CA. 2 weeks ago i was driving a 2001 Focus ZX3 with a lot of great extras, but it still doesn't even compare to the Fiesta ST. Wife and I drove away in a 2019 Fiesta ST Magnetic Metallic. This thing has been a ABSOLUTE BLAST to drive, only plan is to add a compact subwoofer and debadge. No mods, nothin. Not for a while anyways. This car is absolutely perfect for now.

Welcome home, I'll give you 60 day's unless you don't visit this site. tell her it's like buying new shoes, she'll understand. She might not like it, but she will understand.

All she understands is that we went from no car pymts in 3 years, to a sizeable one for the next 6 lol!! But as a whole, we're both very happy, she no longer asks "did you get there okay?"

As far as mods, swear to god for the first time ever, i didn't immediately start thinking "i need it lower/faster/interior needs this" etc. ...my only immediate plans are a subwoofer, and later try to get some FoST Recaros, which would actually be a cool homage to my last car that got EAP Recaros:

Congrats and what DMB says is true the mod bug is strong and infect you. Most of us have succumbed to it. Lol

Finally did my first (and only, for a while) mod! Installed a compact powered subwoofer about a week ago. Cerwin Vega VPAS10. It's nothing crazy but IMO, it brings the stock audio system up to a level it should've been at from the factory. It also fits under the driver seat and i may move it, but it performs well in the trunk, plenty of space to vent, it does get warm.

I've been looking at one of these, to do just what you said. Bring the factory system up to where it should have been from the factory. Did you just grab the signal of the front speaker wire?

Rear actually. From what i read, using the front might be better if you use the "driver position" setting but i always have it on "all seats", and it's soldered in, so. .. lol! The rear speaker wires are in the B-pillar but the fronts are accessible under the kick panel.

Sorry for the late reply, but I'm happy to hear some new input! I found the driver setting makes things sound a bit too different for my taste, and makes the closest speaker distort pretty badly. So the advice on grabbing the rear signal is just what I wanted to hear!

Edit: asked which unit you went with - missed the brand in the earlier post
