Hi there everyone! I am new here and as of now, I drive a 2001 Ford Focus ZX3. I am planning to get a 2015 Fiesta ST soon and I just had a few questions that the dealership will not answer for me. First off, are the Recaros a necessary upgrade? I am a fairly thin guy. 6 feet and 140lbs so I should fit but is it something that you just can't go without? because that 2k that I save by not getting them could go into performance mods or insurance premiums! While we're on the topic of insurance, how much could I expect to pay per 6 months for full coverage in CA. Clean driving history and it will be under the name of someone who's been driving for over 20 years now. Enough about insurance, how comfortable are these things? There's only so much I can get out of a ten-minute test drive. I know that the suspension is performance tuned and therefore stiffer, and the short wheelbase will not be my friend on bumps but am I gonna be able to drive for 2 hours at a time without discomfort and the need to use the restroom every 15 minutes? Lol Lastly, are there good performance upgrade for California residents who have to follow CARB emission standards? Intakes, intercoolers, piping, headers, etc. Thank you for your time and I hope to return here with my ST soon!!
