You know you drive a FiST when...you pull up at the bar and no one notices until you rev it and people spill their drinks when the "phsssssh" goes off! (Yes this actually happened Saturday evening...got a lot of shit for it.)

You know you drive a FiST when...you brag to people how much your "OTHER" tires cost.

You know you drive a FiST when...people call bullshit when you tell them the torque figures.

You know you drive a FiST when...In explaining the size of your turbo to others, you say "it's roughly the size of a bagel bite."

You know you drive a FiST when...car guy's jaws drop when you tell them it hits 21 psi.

You know you drive a FiST when...A full tank of 93 octane costs you less than $40 and you see the jealousy in people's eyes when you look around the other pumps.

True story.


You know you drive a Fiesta ST when you caught yourself 3-wheeling through a corner like Hamster did in Top Gear. Took me by surprise a couple of days ago.

You know you drive a Ford Fiesta ST when... your Husband has only been a passenger in your car twice and he already walks around the house repeatedly saying "Turbo Boost!" :)

I love my new car!!

You know you drive a Fiesta ST when the first thing you do is turn ESC off.

You know you drive a Fiesta ST when you have a hard time deciding between the motorcycle and the ST.

You know you drive a Fiesta ST when you show up at Cars and Coffee and no one knows what it is!

-You get thumbs up and a huge wave and smile from someone in a Nissan GT-R (happened to me on 4-95S!)
-You keep forgetting just how small the car actually is until you walk away from a parking space, and figure you could probably fit another one in there!
-You can't make up your mind which color the ambient lights should be tonight, or you change your MFT wallpaper again...
-You've cleaned your 5-spokes for the second time in a week because of how much brake dust the stock pads like to kick up, or 'Rado Grey' becomes 'Athracite'.
-You have to explain that the car is actually European, despite having an American make (Made in Mexico, designed in Germany, with an engine built in the United Kingdom).
-People refuse to believe the stock dyno numbers, especially the torque.
-You've had a shouting match with SYNC.
-You've accidentally sprayed the back window when trying to actuate the intermittent wipers
-You haven't owned the car 7 days before buying a COBB AP and flashing the Stage 1 map.
-You've watched practically every important review of the car on Youtube, from the majors (Fifth Gear/TGUK) down to EVO and XCAR or even Autocar.
-You squee a bit inside every time someone says the FiST is better than the FoST.
-People are accidentally impaled in the back of the head, because your rear seat headrests are folded down (impossible to see otherwise)
-You hate 4x108 PCD. If you're a former Focus-owner, this is just a long-burning feud. But now you know a lot more about Volvo, Saab, and 80s Audis than you ever thought you'd want to.
-Your friend with a Mazda2 temporarily hates you, but wants to drive your car badly.
-You get started at by Subaru WRX STis at the gas station, hard enough to peel paint (oh boy).
-You've discovered your full-size spare isn't actually full-size, or even the right size. You've also realized that the OEM tire is stupid-expensive.
-The hard suspension means you actually have to pull over at service stations for bathroom breaks on long drives (I imagine this one is less true for guys)
-You know what brake-based torque vectoring and an electronic differential is, and can explain how it works. Not that anyone, y'know, cares when you do.
-You've looked up Team O'Neill Motorsports, and know they are M-Sport's distributor in the United States (*evil laugh*)
-You know that between the Focus ST and the Fiesta ST, you have the superior floormats, and they be jelly.
-You realize the grass is always greener on the other side (UK wants 5-doors and non-Recaro option + full MFT, US wants 3 door)
-People ask you if you like Ken Block.

That's all for now...lol.

- You take your car to a garage mostly known for older performance cars and they repeatedly call it a girls car

- They also don't believe the dyno numbers and that with the ATP stage 3 it would be faster than 98% of the cars there.

Bump.

-When you specifically slow down on the straight just so traffic that's ahead of you can clear the corner....just to be back on their bumper immediately following the apex.

-When you start a turn with a car on your tail and exit with 5+ car-lengths gap.

-When you forget to turn your radio on because you wanted to hear the cute psssssst-pssssshhh!

-When you giggle at said sound. Out loud.

-When you realize you're having more fun at 35 mph than in your last vehicle at 70+.

-When you're forced to build boost because you're about to drive by a pedestrian.

-When you leave for work late and arrive early, but only because you didn't have to slow down for corners-not because you were doing 80 mph.

-When you have to explain to your FoST friends that you actually chose this car and that the dealership wasn't just out of more FoST's.


For the MO owners-

-When your friend wants to compliment your car but he is clearly confused as to what color he should call it.

-When your first answer to someone's question about the car is 'It's not red'.

-When you spend 20 minutes editing your camera-phone pics to correctly capture the color and then IG turns it red anyways.

-When you find a rock chip and immediately think of how much cheaper another color would have been.
