Fiesta ST Vs. Lancer Evolution

16555 Views 90 Replies 26 Participants Last post by  Lovemesomespeed

I am considering these two cars heavily. Has anyone been an Evolution owner? I would be buying a new 2014 model. The ST looks to be a great car, but I am unsure if the HP will be an issue, as I am coming from an e36 m3. I have also never owned a FWD car before, so that is a tradeoff.

Thoughts? The Evolution will be discontinued soon, so this may be a now or never type of decision. Looking for input!

Also, has anyone seen a white fiesta with the molton recaro interior? It is buildable on ford's site, but I have yet to see one in my search.

The BRZ and FR-S are lovely cars. They look better and are a joy to drive. I cannot get over that motor. It killed the deal for me. The dealer let me drive one a few times without restrictions.

You did your homework -- that's a fair price. Some coupons don't stack, but try! If all that sticks, that's better than I did! :)
If you saw this on a test drive (FRS- BRZ) think about living with that motor everyday if you would have owned one like I have.. It was the deal breaker for my to move on... the FRS routine was stand on the gas and wait ..... oh shift.. With the FiST it is more like Stand on the Gas pull yourself out of the back of the seat and then shift .. Repeat.. lots of smiles coming out of second gear with purpose... ;)

If you press ESC OFF once you are in sport mode you must press ESC OFF for about 5 seconds to enter off mode watch the MFT screen as you press it . also you must get to OFF mode from ESC on, Not from the sport mode..
Well I waited 7.5 month from order till it came in and still wanted it even after the sales guy had his way with my trade in ....
So glad i got it too even in the dead of winter it is a hoot to drive :)
Definitely helps reduce buyers remorse. Good rule if you can stick to it and apparently you can. I know I couldn't after I drove one. Not that I have a bit of remorse over buying it! :)
Agreed this one was worth the wait though near the end of the wait I was getting the icth to take the plain one the dealer had in stock .. BUt I was advised by my budget committee to wait or I would be angry with myself.. She oh I mean The Committee was right again....

Great system as was said if you got the stones to stick with it .. Me i tend to be weak..

Mine was from the time I read about it in R&T to the time I put the magazine down....
LOL I see what you are saying ... paperwork eh ?
:bag: way off topic but i hope his feet didn't fall asleep... I hate that ... :book:
I drove FiST again today. I m revising my assessment. It is a solid 8.

The point? Just showing my idiocy out loud on my brainstorming process if I am getting a FiST or not. For all you know, it could be a fake horn, right? Nobody knows me from Adam. Everything could be just a pure fantasy and I am a dreaming 13 years old ;). I never post pictures anyway.
Ummmmmm ok derp
Ya all is forgiven once you get a FiST LOL j/k
no worries Come back when ever you feel the need to get a motorhead fix :)
