    I'm in the market for a new car and have settled on the FiST or FoST.

    Doing a research of the local dealers reveals a 2015 ST. I'm going to go take a look. It doesn't have a lot of options, ie no Recaros...

    dealers seem hesitant to add the Recaro option. In my opinion, it is the only option to get.

    Weird thing is in Canada the Recaros come standard of course with the additional cost. The plain cloth seats aren't an option at all.

    I think there will be fewer dealer ordered 2015 Fiesta STs than there were 2014s. What I seem to notice with dealer ordered cars is it's usually all or nothing (or very little and lacking Recaros). And more recently it's been nothing. Cheaper Fiestas are probably easier to move than $26k Fiestas, especially if someone just walks in the door not really knowing the options available for an ST.

    I'm not gonna make predictions about numbers of dealer-ordered and what options there'll be on them, but I'll state this comfortably--in too many cases, IMO, there's no one (or virtually no one) at the dealer knowledgeable about the car. Too many sales people and even service advisors either don't even know it exists, or know very little about it. Lamentable, but that's my experience.

    I'll agree with your point to the extent that, on a recent service visit, the tire tech at my dealership adjusted my 39/36 tire pressures to 35/35, probably thinking it was just another Fiesta.

    So I got to spend a lot of time in Recaro seats at the Octane academy and to be honest, the seats in those cars versus the base ST1 seats aren't a whole lot different, especially with harnesses on (I have a set I use when on track). To me the added $2-3k for a pair of seats make no sense, especially when I can just go out and buy true racing seats for a fraction of the cost.

    I had my 7500 mile servicing and got a nice work order summary showing that after they rotated the tires, that all pressures were set to factory recommended. Oddly enough when I checked them a week later the rears were at 39 and the fronts were at 36, just the opposite of what they were before they were rotated. ...

    Sounds like typical turnaround techs. They only care about how many cars they can "service" in a day. What you need to find is a mechanic or dealer that truly cares about the cars they are working on.
     
  11. Curious, what all do they do for a 7500 mile servicing? And how much? And is it the same for all Fiestas or just the ST? I searched around and only saw servicing starting at 10k.
