    I had the Argent version of these wheels on my '11 Fiesta SES.
    These are exactly the same wheels, only BLACK.
    Both were mounted with the OEM TPMS, and everything works perfectly.
    I can not explain why they say that the wheels are not TPMS compatible.

    How does that little subwoofer sound?

    It is 8 inch, it won't beat you out of the car but it sounds great.
    I do prefer to hear the music and not just be pounded by the concision.
    I also like it because I can still use the cargo area.

    I just converted my Fog Lights to also be DRLs.
    This was a relatively easy MOD.
    The Fog Light Relay is negative triggered.
    Therefore another relay was required to receive a positive ignition trigger.

    How does it work with the factory stereo? Since there aren't a bunch of equalizer options, I'd imagine it's tough to get a good sound. I believe Tasca parts sells a 10 inch kicker for $527

    I am not going to knock Kicker as they make very fine equipment.
    However as with anything there are pros and cons.
    You need to choose what works for you.

    In all mine cost about $200.00.
    I think it sounds great.
    There is a crossover in the adapter that is connected to the rear speakers.
    There is a gain control and crossover on the amp.
    Minor adjustments can be made with the car's fade control.

    The best part for me is that I do get the enhanced sound and it takes away very little cargo room.

    So another difference between the us and uk version FiST is that the us has a larger armrest and the cig and usb are housed in there...wish I have this. My euro spec armrest can barely fit a square box of tissue in it...

    Did you make the box or buy it?

    I made it with help form a friend.
    This was originally made for my '11 Fiesta SES.
    I just reinstalled it into the ST.

    Love the yellow Lamin-X Film on the fogs, looking into doing the same when I get mine. Did you find these pre-cut for our fogs, or did you use something universal?

    This is probably the cheapest and easiest thing to do.
    The precut ones I found were too small.
    Just get two small squares of the Lamin-X film and cut the two circles of the size you want.
    Remember that the lens is convex so add a little extra.
    Use the wet apply method with plenty of water and place the film on the lens, if it is too bog you can take it off and trim it.
    Once you like how it fits, then work out the bubbles for the final application.

    I also recommend that you change the bulbs to 3000k or below.
    This will give you a good yellow look.
