    I'd missed that conversation. Hm. I sent the email, I'll let you know what they say.

    Sorry I just re read what my dealer sent me. He said ford has the mats listed in their inventory but they weren't able to order them yet.

    Okay, thanks! Was that information from a while ago?

    Haha, I've gotten a reply. My salesman spoke with the Parts Department and confirmed they can be ordered. He said delivery would take a week at a cost of $140 :dead:

    So, take your pick, price will come out pretty much the exact same. Although I'm probably paying tax through the Parts Department.

    EDIT: I've asked to order them through the Parts Department.

    You could always call your friendly forum supporting dealer that can do the Fiesta ST mats for $84.70 plus shipping :)

    BTW- That price stands for either carpet or rubber with the ST logo.

    Just pulled the trigger on these. Tried my aftermarket Autozone rubberized mats that I had in my old car, and they definitely won't work. The foot well is fairly large considering the size of the car, yet the pedals don't leave much room for things that don't belong. I'll give a full report (with pictures) when they arrive next week.

    And how much is shipping to Ontario Canada?

    Thanks for the information! My salesman's come back to me saying that the mats he was telling me about were actually replacement mats for the already-included cloth floor mats. I'd look into the option you've mentioned, if shipping to BC, Canada is reasonable (I suppose any amount of shipping is going to still come out less than $140CAD+tax).

    So they do have ST logo'd mats - just not with the car? Put me down for some rubber ones in about 2 months. :)

    Also, I see there is an ST-specific cargo floor mat. Is it any different than the 2011-2013 ones?

    I might order the st specific all weather mats from my dealer's parts dept, I should get a employee discount

    Depends on final size and weight, if I had to guess I'd say $25.00 or so via parcel post. About half that if you could pick them up on this side of the border.

    I finally saw my first Fiesta ST on the road today. Parked in a driveway In Newmarket Ontario Canada. Performance blue, grey wheels. If its anyone on this forum... I may knock on your door and ask for a passenger test drive at least! I was actually taking my M licence test at the time (full motorcycle licence here in Ontario) so I couldn't stop or even get a good look. I went back after the test was over but it was gone :(

    So happy to see one but so jealous! My dealer told me mine would be built the first week of September... Still not built. Meagan told be to check back the week of the 16th.

    Eww creep-o, just stopping at someone's house to stare at their car? That's weird.

    Just kidding. Canadians are generally much more chill than Americans are so no one may think twice of it. But down here in Florida we would have to chase you off with a baseball bat.

    I asked if it was anyone on this forum then I would. I wouldn't just randomly go to someone's house.

    I saw that. I was just making a joke. Didn't intend to offend and apologize if I did.

    lol, when I pre-ordered my Camaro, I had one of the first ones locally... I can't tell you how many times I came outside to find some random stranger checking it out in my drive-way.. often with their own car parked/still running at the end of the driveway. Or people snapping photo's in parking lots/streets... It was a little weird.. My bedroom has a 20-25 ft window overlooking my driveway, so ... sometimes when I looked out there would be someone there, and they'd take off whenever they realized they were "busted". A little weird, but as long as people were respectful/didn't handprint all over the fresh wax..... I didn't mind a brief sneak peak. And it really brought on a lot of "Car" talks with random people, which is cool. And being my first car purchase... it was a really neat experience... (Too bad the Camaro itself was a horrible experience.) lol

    It's kind of interesting to live in a time where even more "affordable" cars are so impressive that they can draw the kind of attention that is traditionally reserved for classics/exotics/one-off's. The first half-year to a year of ownership was kind of rock-star status.

    I don't think the ST will be quite as dramatic, as I don't think the general public with no knowledge of what it is, going to go bonkers over a hatchback.. But I am sure you will get a lot of random compliments, and the occasional enthusiasts, or car folk sneakin up on the cars in parking lots asking questions & taking photo's while they drool.

    I remember being pretty stoked to see my first Golf R in public on the road.. I talked to the guy and he was really enthusiastic to chat about the car.. And took me for a rip around the neighborhood. Turned out to be a fellow forum member of another enthusiast site I frequent.

    Pretty thankful to have such a wicked selection of cars to choose from these days though. There have been less exciting times in the automotive industry!

    I live in a more affluent area of town and see maserati, Ferrari, Aston martin, mercedes, Lamborghini, and good lord so many Porsches pretty much everyday. The only cars I get all excited over are Nissan gtr, datsun 240z, and fiestas (in the hope that is an st) because of their rarity. All those other cars are too unattainable for me. I prefer something I can park downtown and not worry about. A nice wrx catches my eye much faster than a Ferrari 458.

    Yeah, we've got plenty of the typical exotics/luxury here too. The old school classics / muscle is generally what grabs my eye.. Rare stuff that isn't dime a dozen.... Not too much as far as modern vehicles surprises me. Been on the look out for FiST's but haven't seen any yet. I see the regular Fiesta's around though. Gotta do a double take every time one passes just to be sure.
