They are everywhere at local auto-x events. Very popular car. Since ford can’t build an auto gearbox to save thier life, it’s a good thing it’s a manual.

Thank you - I've been looking for video of a well driven ST w/ data... looks great. True momentum car. I'm sold on the ST. Now I have to decide between white or grey. Picking up one of two on Friday to compliment the z/28!!

I went with the FiST. It's a very FUN car. Odd how nimble it is compared to the z/28. Lateral grip feels very similar but the front axle isn't nearly as crisp. If you come into a turn hot it will rotate the rear. Also, if you're on maintenance throttle and lift the nose will tuck towards the apex. Also, I'm surprised how powerful it is - I only have 240 miles and am breaking it in, but the few pulls I did have been getting progressively stronger as the car has been broken in.

I got mine 5,700 off of MSRP; 17,900 + dest, TTL - overall pretty happy with the deal for the car. It'll make a great auto x toy

Time to drive the z/28 today!!

I’m debating taking the RS to the dealership and walking out with a Fiesta ST. I want more of a beater so to speak. Haha and FWD burnouts are a ton of fun!
