I'm surprised that people are knocking the shift feel of the Fiesta ST. I've had several manual transmission cars including the one critics agree is about the best manual ever fitted to a street car (the S2000) and I find the Fiesta ST shifter to be great. The throw is a bit long, but the engagement is very positive.

Yeah, I don't have a problem with it at all (also have driven many manuals). 1-4 don't seem overly long and there is a bit of a stretch for 4-5-6 which is just fine since it's not like I'm going to be aggressively shifting that pattern anyway. Shifter seems to have just about the right balance of smoothness and notchy engagement. Compared to my current cars it's a bit less notchy than the NA miata and a bit more positive than the GTI (with are both decent shifters as well).

I just had my car on a lift and I have to say the stock exhaust was nicely bent, none of those crimped bends that cut the I.D. in half.

I doubt the exhaust will be suddenly "uncorked" by a cat-back except for sound levels maybe.

Its not like the old days when a Mustang GT had a fake dual exhaust that narrowed to just a little bigger than 1" I.D. and 2.25" true duals were a huge upgrade.

I don't know if anyone is going to do this, but a muffler swap might be just as good as a cat-back for sound and it should be cheaper.
