Received an email from Ken Anderson this afternoon that said, in part "...will have floor mats, shift boots and many other products as we move forward. We are also producing a new front spoiler extension (see below)...not sure the winglets will fit the ST as the spoiler is slightly different."

Can BRGt350 or anyone with an ST and access to a Euro-spoiler equipped non-ST confirm spoiler difference?

I have a Euro Spoiler with the "Winglets" on it that I am keeping from my current 2011 Fiesta.
From all that I can see, they look the same but I am unable to be 100% sure until I get my ST in about 10 days.
As I am unable to remove the "Winglets", my plan was to just fit the entire Euro Spoiler.
I am sure the hatch itself is the same.
Since I live just above L.A., I could just make an easy drive down to Mountune.

I am 99.999999% sure the ST rear spoiler and European spoiler from the Ford Accessories are the same. I would see no reason to develop a spoiler that is different. That would mean the rear Mountune extensions will work. There sure isn't a lot of difference between stock and the Mountune front spoiler thingie. It does bring the surface in front of the intercooler out to the rest of the bumper, so that is nice.

I do have some pictures of both the ST with my 2011 Fiesta, but have not posted any of them yet.

Thanks Bryan. That's what I thought too.

It's subtle but I like that. I hope they offer them paint-matched.

MGORDON, I installed the Mountune quick shift kit (bought from FSWerks) a couple of weeks ago. It was definitely a bit of a pain to install. You have to tighten three Allen-head bolts and there is very little room in there. That was a minor inconvenience and once installed it makes the shift throw exactly right in my opinion. The factory shift throw was too long and the feel too light. This kit fixes both issues. I did have an interference issue that I described to FSWerks with pics and suggested they pass on to Mountune: I drove the car post-install and immediately noticed it didn't completely go into 6th gear. I wondered if there was any cable adjustment and went to bed. The next day I had time to look at it and discovered that in 6th gear the two shift levers on the transmission are nearest each other. The transverse gate lever (I don't know the right word, but the lever that moves you from the 1-2 gate to the 3-4 gate, etc.) was running into the nylon rod end for the main lever. The Mountune adapter moves the ball attachment for the cable closer to the pivot and also closer to the other lever. I was able to get some pry bars in there and bend the lever over about 1/8 inch. Now it's all good, but Mountune definitely made the design a little tight to deal with car manufacturing tolerances.

Which way did you get the lever to bend ? Towards the battery or away ? Thanks for sharing...

Yup Sekred that's the same pic I took :) It's hard to get leverage, but it just needs to bend slightly toward the battery.
