    Jason's Love Bean Sequel - Ford Fiesta ST

    The xA has been slowly crapping the bed, not undrivable, but just annoying maintenance, that I finally decided to put said monthly maintenance costs towards a new car payment instead. A Fiesta ST

    Keith told me to post here, so uh, yeah. I guess there, I done did it.

    Mini review:

    - It's a car that deserves a better driver than myself
    - Clutch is light, transmission is crisp
    - Torque is immediate
    - Stays flat in the corner
    - Functional interior, though I'm uncomfortable with all the new fangled standard do-dads
    - Blindspot mirrors are pretty neat

    Only 85 miles on it so far... I've read some things that changing oil at around 100 miles is a decent idea to clear out some of the initial crap, then again at somewhere in the low 1000s (1000-5000?) But I think Ford's official suggestions is to just do a change at about 1000, so I dunno. Also, this engine break in period is annoying, I don't drive that much (that many miles)... it's gonna be like 6 months before I get to have fun

    All in all, though, fantastic car, really good bang for the buck. Definitely the quickest thing I've driven for more than a day or two. Which, isn't saying a whole lot, but its cool for me.

    Pictures will happen at some point in the future.

    Pics or it didn't happen. Especially from your photog self.

    I haven't driven a FiST but I have driven the Focus ST. Brilliant car for being FWD

    Agreed, if I needed something smaller the FiST would be on the list!

    What color?

    Black, duh.

    People keep asking for pictures, but I don't know why, there's plenty of pictures of FiSTs online

    I didn't get the car until late in the evening, so they didn't have time to wash it, but they gave me a voucher to come back and get it properly cleaned a couple times. I also need to have them remove the fucking dealer badge. After that I might take pictures... but I might just wait until I can make the OEM wheels black somehow
