    Are you in love with the TL? I guarantee that you will also be in love with the Fiesta but it all comes down to what you are looking for in your car.

    I'm trading my '11 SES on Monday. I had lots of mods on it that the dealer didn't care about. My daughter has an '11 SE that will get all the mods from my car before I trade it in so she makes out pretty well on this deal too.

    2012 Impreza 5-door "sport," although there was nothing sporty about it

    The car was a year old when it was traded and I didn't like the total lack of power below 4k other than that it was a personal choice to trade it rater then keep it as with life things change and so did my needs ;)

    I won't be getting my ST for awhile, but when I do, my 2003 Ford ZX2 will be the car to get replaced. Back when I thought about getting a regular Fiesta I wanted to keep the ZX2 as my fun car, but getting the ST it doesn't make sense having my fun car the slower car. :p I'm gonna have one heck of a hard time parting with it. It was my first nice car. Saved up $6,000 for a year to buy one. Put a lot of wrench time in on it between all my mods, maintenance, and my 5 speed manual transmission swap from auto. The ST will more than make up for how the car accelerates and handles, but the one thing that will bug me is the lack of a subwoofer. I like listening to music in my car and have nice speakers, a head unit, amps, and a sub that put out some great sounding music. If only the ST was offered with even an 8" factory subwoofer, that would make it that much easier to part with my car. I don't plan to mod the ST aside from the short shift kit, so a factory installed sub would be great.

    I'd probably sell it private party just because it's already not worth much in trade in value as it is. And with mods it might be worth more to some high school kid who will likely wreck it into a tree after 3 weeks. :( As long as I don't know about it I'll be fine. I know I'm not getting my money back on the mods and don't plan to pull most of them, if any, just because the ZX2 platform is already 10 years old at the newest so trying to sell the stuff would be difficult and I no longer have the stock parts to replace it all. That's really why I don't want to mod the ST. You get the mod bug and you just throw money into your car. Before you know it, you're broke and you can't make the money back.

    2011 Hyindai i20. Only cosmetic and functional mods: Android head unit. Reverse camera. Retro morimoto mini bi xenon headlights with ccfl halos. Led rear emblem light.

    Never looked back since. The only thing I do wish the FiST has would be hid headlights as standard. We get Euro version here and that only has halogen projector candlesticks...

    Now I need mentally prepare myself with another retro...

    I traded my 2011 Tux black SES. Got a Tux black ST w/ Recaros and the Rado gray wheels.:D I do like the new infotainment system, but I'm still learning it.o_O

    Unfortunately we lose the applink functionality so that will be a learning curve for me. I used it for Pandora and I'll have to relearn the system with the reduced functionality. I hope they update MFT to include applink.

    I didn't trade it in but I sold my 2011 Fiesta to my mother when I bought the ST. Too nice of a car not to keep in the family.

    I too think that Ford needs to get on the stick and get applink into MFT.

    No trade here. I bought the FiST as a daily driver as my s2000 track car was wearing on me as a daily.

    2011 Honda CR-Z EX. I still don't quite know what I was thinking when I bought that one. It was neither a great hybrid nor a true sporty car. I got more compliments on it than I do on my ST, but I think it's mostly because people had no idea what it was. Took a bath on it when I traded it in, but I wasn't about to spend the money to get new tires and such. Couldn't be happier with my Ford.
