    Ok, so you guys may remember me from a while back. I was thinking of trading in my car towards an ST.

    Here is my question:
    Would the disk brakes from a 2011 SES Hatchback model fit on the 2014 ST?
    Not the OEM, I ordered some nice EBC drilled and slotted front rotors because I wanted an upgrade and I had plans for autocross.

    I tried the search but I couldn't come up with anything solid.
    I basically am back to a possible trade towards an ST and I would like to know if parts could be swapped between the two vehicles.

    A list of stuff I have that I want clarification on are:

    Front brake disks and pads
    Braided brake lines
    Wheels and tires: Motegi MSR 116 17" rims with 205/45/R17 tires. (I think this has already been answered with the fact that a few members of the Fiesta Faction have taken ST wheels and put them on their regular Fiestas.

    My reason for trade is that as much as I love my Fiesta, there is no support for mods. Nothing. No ECU, no turbo, no turboback exhaust, nothing for the manifolds, nothing. That is unless I have a Euro model...which I do not. I was also involved in an accident where someone rammed into me from the rear driver side area and I had over $6000 worth of damage done to the car. now that this happened, the value of my car is just gonna plummet. I only have about $4500 owed on it and could pay it off in a year. So I had better get a damned good deal on this otherwise I will walk away. With the money I am putting into mods and the original cost of the vehicle, I could totally afford an ST. My fear is that I would be basically back to square 1 with payments. But anyway, enough about the story.

    Any answer would be appreciated and sorry if any of this has been answered before. I swear I used the search option.

    The wheels and braded brake lines will swap between cars.
    However the front rotors on the ST are larger than the non-ST so the ST calipers would overhang the rotors.
    Also the ST pads have a lager surface area.
    Although the pads may fit (I haven't tried this) they will not go toward the center of the ST rotor as far.

    In my opinion you should get the ST, you will have SO much more fun and be able to do the upgrades you want.
    Sell the other parts on the FiestaFaction to someone needs to do a brake job and keep the wheels.
    Just remember that the ST comes with very sport minded tires so keep the best ones.

    Thank you very much my good man.
    I am actually in the works of acquiring some cheap Motegi wheels with tires for my Fiesta to trade them in with. (The guy is asking 300 for a $1200 set of wheels)

    Then I am heading to Carmax to get a price before going to the deal and showing him what USAA and carmax can offer me and try to haggle down the price.

    I planned on doing the white, but I saw the green in person and it blew my mind. It's just like the Yellow blaze that my Fiesta is, but green. It's a beautiful tri-coat with nice sparkle in it. It has the recaro package and a moon roof. (I want the moon roof so bad.)

    I just know if I trade I will cry. My little Fiesta has been with me for 2 years and it's been the best car ever. But I just want something more and I know that the future of the Fiesta isn't looking so good. There is plenty of handling support and the Euro models have plenty of power support as well, but here stateside it's just stupid at how no one looks at them in terms of power.

    Time will tell.

    Worst case, I walk away and keep working on my fiesta and take it to the Tail of The Dragon and other events.

    The rear rotors on the ST are the same as the Focus C170 rears, so your EBC rotors might work as long as the disc brake conversion for the 2011 are using the 2000-2011 Focus rear rotors. The ST front rotors are borrowed from a van in Europe, so nothing will transfer over between the Fiesta ST and non ST cars. The steering knuckles are different, so I am betting the 300mm PumaSpeed brake kit in my garage for my 2011 won't fit the ST. No swapping brake pads between the non-ST and the ST as the ST pads are much larger. I think 30% larger than the regular car.

    No issues on the wheels. I had a number of different wheels on the ST I had last summer. I installed my 17" Axis wheels, 15" 2000 Focus ZX3 wheels, and 16" 2003 Focus wheels without any issues.

    Trade-in on the Fiesta is painful, so you might want to sell it on your own. I am working with a few interested people on my car and haven't listed it on any of the car sale sites like AutoTrader, Craigslist, or eBay.
