I was super excited when Ford announced the Fiesta ST would be coming to the US (finally!), so I placed a custom order at the end of October for a white FiST with Recaros and navigation. Like a lot of the guys here I waited...and waited...and waited. Towards the beginning of January, we found out our FiST SEMA build with Ford, Tanner Foust, and the Pat Tillman foundation would be leaving us to do some PR, so we started working to find something in stock locally. After a bit of searching, we found one that was fully loaded. I didn't want the sunroof initially, but now that I have it, I realize it will be great for nice days, an easy way to make sure my mountain bike is still connected to the roof, or a perfect place for a GoPro suction cup mount. The car was finally delivered last night, perfect timing for an Austin ice storm! So far I love it and I can't wait to get started modding it. I'll try to document as much as I can in this thread, upload videos and impressions to YouTube, and post fun pictures on Instagram: I hope you follow along!

I babied my car for maybe 1/4 mile.

She is fine and running strong 10,000 miles later.

Give her hell!
Is there any chance of you making the left exit cable standard on the Fiesta ST Accessport?

I can't think of a good reason for buying a second cable.
Exactly, if it was $19 I wouldn't mind so much.

Ideally they would make it work with a generic Bluetooth OBD2 dongle so we could go wireless.
If you call us, we can probably make that happen. Currently our website recognizes a single part number for the Focus/Fiesta ST AP, so that's why we have the straight exit for both. Hopefully in the future it will be a bit more customizable on checkout.

That's customer service right there, thanks.

I just placed an order for an Accessport with left exit cable.

Customer service was great.

Rereading the original post, your car is a twin to mine, Oxford White with Smoke Storm Recaros and Navigation.

Yours has a sunroof but I'll let that slide.

Mine is dirtier.

I'm going to have light wheels and Cobb power for my trip to the Horse Thief Mile, just the kind of edge I'm looking for.

My shipping confirmation came in a little after lunch.

They didn't take their time putting it in the mail.

If I had ordered on the 6'th instead of procrastinating I would have my Accessport by now!

I'm a bad customer.

I just got my Accessport and I'll install it later tonight but you should have told me you were headed to Laguna Seca. You could have hand delivered my Accessport and I even would have helped you drive that STI.

Tune installed, I turned off the traction control and went for a test drive.

Very nice bump in torque and I lit up the tires from a roll in first, something I couldn't get it to do on the stock tune.

I'll learn more as I drive it but so far so good.
One issue I have had is that I called Cobb to ask for a left exit cable and they said they could do that but the cable they sent is straight.

I sent an email to them and got an auto responder that they would get back to me in 1-3 days.

So far, nothing.

The straight cable works just fine but I would still rather have left...
For some reason I can't see the image which I'm assuming is a stage 2 dyno graph.

I would love to see something like that so please fix it.
My phone doesn't right click, still can't see it.
That looks like a stage one chart and the SSL certificate is expired or bad...

You have conquered the dyno chart.
