    I was super excited when Ford announced the Fiesta ST would be coming to the US (finally!), so I placed a custom order at the end of October for a white FiST with Recaros and navigation. Like a lot of the guys here I waited...and waited...and waited. Towards the beginning of January, we found out our FiST SEMA build with Ford, Tanner Foust, and the Pat Tillman foundation would be leaving us to do some PR, so we started working to find something in stock locally. After a bit of searching, we found one that was fully loaded. I didn't want the sunroof initially, but now that I have it, I realize it will be great for nice days, an easy way to make sure my mountain bike is still connected to the roof, or a perfect place for a GoPro suction cup mount. The car was finally delivered last night, perfect timing for an Austin ice storm! So far I love it and I can't wait to get started modding it. I'll try to document as much as I can in this thread, upload videos and impressions to YouTube, and post fun pictures on Instagram: I hope you follow along!

    Welcome to the FiST owner's family. :)

    It is so nice to have people that make aftermarket parts for a car actually own and drive one.
    It provides an additional sense of quality and caring to the parts your company offers.
    This is because we now can feel that you are not just another cog in the wheels of corporate America.
    But that you are on our side and building parts that will be put on YOUR car.

    This really is cool, like others said, it makes a real difference to us!

    P.S. Can your car really be covert if you state it in red, up front? ;)

    Every time I see this color it confirms the decision I made!

    By the way, if you need to test parts is the northeast...? Also, when is Cobb bringing to market more than just an air filter and the accessport? I'm thankful you guys are pursuing the FiST platform and cannot wait to purchase your parts (hard work)... Thanks again!

    White has grown on me big time! I love it now.

    Me too.
    But I find a good Luffa Sponge and a mild soap gets it off. :)

    Thanks for all the great feedback, I love being a FiST owner! We are working on a full line of hard parts. No hard dates yet, but we are working hard on final production.

    I did my first few mods on Friday!

    COBB Knob. A little taller and lighter than stock, but I prefer the extra height and shape. I had this knob in my old Subaru Legacy GT and have always loved the feel. Never gets hot or cold either!


    Stickers and license plate frame. Car feels way faster with these :p

    Marshall from COBB (he does social media and forum stuff) and I took a trip down to San Antonio to visit my brother and do some mountain biking. We fit my Giant Trance X 29er in the bike by taking both wheels off and put his bike on the top using a Sea Sucker rack. I'll be getting a Sea Sucker Mini Bomber soon so I can carry 2 bikes on the top. We took some Texas Hill Country back roads and the car performed great. Still doing break in miles so I didn't get on it too hard, but the suspension got a decent work out on the Devil's Backbone. So far I'm loving this car!


    Myself, Marshall, and my brother after biking. His Ford Flex is very roomy!


    On the Devil's Backbone:


    First time I filled the car up!


    Tried to get Red Bull at the gas station. Turns out they only had beer and tobacco. Texas.
