I got to sit in a Fiesta ST for the first time this past weekend! Unfortunately the dealer was packed, so I didn't opt for a test drive, but I did get to sit in the car for about 45 minutes. The ST seems amazing, especially at its price point! I sat in a Molten Orange with moonroof and standard seats (non Recaro). I must admit that the car is on the small side, but that's part of the hot hatch appeal, and I did fit, even with the moonroof (6'2" and about 185lb). My only gripe has to be the arm rest on the driver's door. I actually didn't notice how often I use a door arm rest until after sitting in the Fiesta. I have an hour commute each way, which consists of mostly highway, so I realized that I use both armrests in my current vehicle routinely. The problem with the Fiesta is that I have the seat in a very low and far back position. Raising the seat up actually seems to push it forward too. It goes back far enough that I sit comfortable, but the door arm rest ends before my elbow. I can move my seat forward and fit my elbow on the arm rest, but at the expense of leg room. It's hard to explain, so I'll post some photos below. Without actually owning the car, it's difficult to know if this will become an annoyance/incommodious over time. Can any tall, arm rest fans, comment on how things are long term? I remember reading a post by Colin1337about having to sit so far back that "my left arm doesn't get to sit on the nice padded part of the door," so this may be a common problem. I haven't sat in a Focus ST, but the door arm rest seems to go all the way to the back of the door, whereas the Fiesta door arm rest ends an inch or two before the end of the door. Also, for what it's worth, I would probably opt against the Recaro seats because it seems all that bolstering would make using the armrests even more difficult. The dealer did not have any STs in stock with Recaros, so I was unable to personally check. Can anyone with a similar height/weight attest?
