    Picked up this little bugger 3 weekends ago in the D.C. area after wanting a change from the 2015 Si Sedan I've had since Feb 2015.

    Drove it back to Charlotte in all kinds of traffic and rain, yet the smile couldn't be wiped from my face. This little bugger is fun for what it is.

    2016 Ford Fiesta ST with 12,700 when picked up
    197 hp, 202 tq, 2745 lbs
    Platinum White (optional color)
    Gloss black wheels (optional)
    Red calipers (optional)


    Current Mods:
    LED interior lights
    Infotainment software upgrade and USB plug upgrade(for CarPlay)
    Kuat Sherpa 2.0 bike rack and hitch
    Cobb rear motor mount
    Mountune panel filter


    Future Mods:
    Possible headlight/fog light retro
    Maybe some performance stuff

    Very cool man. I know @k757 probably has some recommendations since he had one for a bit.

    Nope, just a little jealous. After chasing an mr2 this summer, my Si seems to resemble a Japanese Cady

    It did very well, lots of fun. Needs better tires.....was spinning the inside front tire coming out of some corners and maybe brake lines.....brake pedal seemed soft for me.

    Cobb Rear Motor Mount installed this weekend. Nice 35 min instal that should help a bit. Drives nice with the mount in there. Little rattle on startup and if the idle dips below 800. Not really noticeable in the car. Make the in between shifts a lot more crisp.

    Ford cheaped our and used the same motor mounts across all versions of the Fiesta. The ST has quite a bump in TQ which lead to the engine moving around a lot so upgrading the RMM is almost a “must”.

    Installed a hitch a month or two ago. Still need to buy a rack for the bikes.
