Decided to make my own thread mostly so i can track the progress of my Fiesta ST as i begin buying parts etc.

First order of business will be a new set of wheels for springtime, which i am hopefully sorting out in the next few days. I'll probably be going 17x7 and keep the stock tires. I dont track it often, might go to the strip once or twice and i also might dip my feet in autox sometime in the coming months after the ST Octane academy, which i plan to sign up for soon. Therefore i think the OEM Potenzas will more than suffice for daily use once the cold weather goes away. Until then, she sits on steelies:

Debadged "Fiesta" emblem and relocated the rear "ST" emblem to the rear passenger side like the Euro versions and the Focus STs. It's a small nod to its Euro heritage but i also like the way the lines of the ST flow with the lines on the hatch.

Don't mind all the dirt, the dealership i got my first oil change at was under construction right next to the wash bay so the complimentary wash was virtually pointless.

Look great. How did you remove the Fiesta logo? What did you use to reapply the ST logo.

I just bought another emblem (Amazon I think). To take it off use a hair dryer to loosen the logo, use floss to "cut" between the logo tape and the car, and then rub off any remaining tape with goo gone and a rag.

placed an order a couple weeks ago for some TD Pro Race 1.2s in Anthracite, 17x7.5 et40, should hopefully be here by April!

Also just ordered a Perrin super shorty antenna (had one on my Mini) and a DMB gel badge for my steering wheel. Contemplating getting some overlays from DMB for the Pro Race center caps.

Yeah... ST badge on the right. Just as it should be... :cool:

I look forward to seeing what your new wheels look like on the car, Dom!

Thanks Dan! Likewise :p

I find it funny that even those this is a Ford i find myself still gravitating towards the Euro look and styling. For example i just installed some chrome bulb turn signals to get rid of the amber in the front and rear turn signals (pics to come tonight). I'm also planning to order the Euro projectors, mostly for the projector lenses themselves but also because they don't have that amber piece in the headlight.

I'd offer you my headlights, but I kinda need them... ;)

Yes, it's a Ford, but it is a European one, so I think it's good that you want to make it look like the Euro version. I just wish said projectors came standard with HID bulbs, as the FocuST does...

You and me both. I have seen several different instances where HIDs fit and function flawlessly (without glare, clean cutoff line) in OEM halogen-built projectors so hopefully that will be the case with these. Only one way to find out i guess
