    Performance Blue with Recaro seats.

    Took awhile to get the Fiesta Movement discount sorted out.

    I got word last week from my Internet sales person at my local dealer that my order for my FiST will be in on October 1. That would make it 4 months & a couple days from my order date of 29 May. I am now working on accumulating my down payment.

    My 05/29-ordered 2015 Molten Orange 2015 ST (which I'm naming, "Tangello") arrived & I drove her home Friday, 09/26. After driving it a few days to get used to it, I LOVE this little 'Hot Hatch'! It seems that I have a lot to learn about what she has to offer! My iPhone 5S/64Gb paired up & plays automatically, very easily.

    My OTD cost was $26,016.90 w/tax, license, & other necessary So. Calif. fees. I opted for services & other options @ signing that added $5,808.72 more, figuring @ 72, I'm not going to be doing much -if any- work on her myself anymore, and I can afford it. So that $24,421.69 as-advertised price with Molten Orange paint, moonroof, and Smoke Gray Recaros (no nav. but w/My Ford Touch/Sony sound system) quickly climbs to a bottom-line of $32,573.30. My 2004 Mystichrome Cobra will now stay parked & protected most of the time. My Madeline likes Tangello so much that I can see here thinking real hard about replacing her 2001 540ia w/a Performance Blue one for herself!

    Our youngest Daughter Jen took it for a drive & LOVES it, too! So Ol' Dad scores 1 for us oldsters! Who sez you have to be a young person to like this Fiesta ST? I am looking forward to doing some upgrades, but just not loud ones.

    Mine is being built, and has a ETA of 3JAN15. Though I'm expecting in March/April as it still needs to be shipped to Germany...

    Awesome, looks great! You will love that car even more as time goes on. I kind of wish I had shopped around for a Molten Orange now, it looks amazing and I hear pictures do not do it justice.

    You paid too much for sure...but if you don't mind spending money, take a look at mountuneusa.com...if you think your FiST is frisky stock, install some mountune modification parts, and you will love it even more!

    That's relative. Not every one is privy to a fantastic deal on these cars. Plus he opted for a lot of packages that most buyers would not; which he seems OK with, so again, it's relative. No reason to say he paid too much when that's a matter of opinion / perspective and not a matter of his own comfort with what he paid. I think the focus should be on whether or not he is happy with the car, which it seems he is. I've seen a lot of people pay less, but I've seen quite a few pay around the same.

    I'd say he paid about MSRP for the OTD price including TTL. The extra $5k spent on whatever it was, I wouldn't have spent myself.

    I just got word that my ST that was supposed to arrive in mid April will be ready for pickup on 2/2! I have to take a train six hours from The Netherlands to northern Germany to pick it up. The nice thing is that my first drive with my new ST will be on the autobahn!

    No Sil3nt611, I paid invoice + Tax & gov't. fees + the $5,808 for the options a 72-yr.-old can afford, NOT MSRP which was much more. Remember, this is So. California. I agree that most people wouldn't have bought the options & I did hesitate, but I now have bumper-to-bumper protection including ALL maint. + paint/body + Ford's optional security pkg. The only place I have to negotiate is maint. for performance options I will have them install/cover. I'm looking @ LSD (mountune or Quaife), ST-215, mud flaps, & Cobb AccessPort V3. I will wait until I get past 1,000 mi. or more, first.

    I was trying to say you didn't spend too much for the car plus TTL and fees before the $5,808 extra cost. I still wouldn't have spent the extra money, but if you think it's worth it that's what matters. All I want is the factory installed options on my car that I order, no dealer installed crap or extra warranty (unless I can work out a good deal on that).

    Bronzit you will like the Quaife LSD best out there for the money for ease of Maint. aka no maint required can run any fluid for lube that your trans requires. You will be very happy with the ST 215 if you are looking to continue your full coverage warreties... Enjoy

    It's all about preference. I chose not to buy a maintenance plan, because I like working on my cars, and it's of no value to me to pay someone else to do minor up keep. To some, this may be a great convince. I went cheap with my car. I opted not to have reccaros or sat-nav, but I plan to use my ST mainly for highway cruising, and the navigation system won't work in Europe anyways. I'll see if I regret not getting the reccaros...

    After 6 months of waiting, my ST is finally on a boat over here (and I can track it with marinetraffic.com), and I'll be driving it Feb 10!

    Ordered my Fiesta ST on 9/1/14 and still haven't received it yet. The Ford rep won't give me a straight answer on why it's taking so long. Monday will be 26 weeks. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Sounds like they screwed up and didn't put in the order right away or at all or the factory screwed up somehow. It shouldn't take 6 months for an ordered car. If your dealer isn't saying something then I'd bet something is wrong on their end. If they aren't saying anything and you haven't put any money into it yet then I'd look into ordering from elsewhere. Sure it will take another 3 months but no telling if you'll ever actually get the car from this dealer at this rate.

    The dealer put the order in as part of their inventory. I'm not exactly sure when they put the order in but I received the vin on 10/30/2014. I called Ford customer service for an update in mid November. They told me the car was in New Jersey and would be delivered any day. I called again in early December and they told me the car was in Mexico. The problem was then escalated and I received a Ford rep as a contact. Since then, the car was shipped from Mexico, stuck in customs for 4 weeks and now is hung up by weather delays. The car has been changed in their system as Sold (even though I still don't have the car) and I'm receiving really poorly timed "how do you like your new car" survey emails. This is a disaster. I keep requesting a detailed report of the order from start to finish but they continue to ignore my request.
