Default New 2015 Fiesta ST - Thanks John "The Beast" @ AP Ford

Let me just start this thread by thanking John at Al Piemonte Ford. This had to be one of the easiest car transactions I have been part of. I went to John with a very specific request. I wanted a new Oxford White 2015 Fiesta ST. And yes I wanted white only. Little did I know that these little Fiesta ST's are hard to come by especially in the color combination I wanted. John was able to track one down 250 miles away and make a trade so I could get this car. Not only did he track the car down I was able to get a little more optioned car (nav,sunroof) for the original agreed upon price!From start to finish it was a pleasure to work with John and I definitely would refer him to anyone I know looking for a automotive purchase.


I just picked it up late last night from the dealer. So have not done much yet. First thing on the list will be tint and tune Here are a couple pictures. Not the greatest quality but its a start. Maybe I am the first Fiesta ST here!!

The car is actually very fun to drive in its stock form. Yes its not for drag racing. This is just a fun daily driver to enjoy and maybe take to the autobahn.

Nice car.

Had a similar experience with John. Good guy. As recent customers we should ask to demo a GT350 when they come in

I had my Edge's front windows tinted and my brother had his Z06 front windows tinted by his guy. I've had multiple cars tinted and it's the best job I've seen.

Awesome! Congrats. Victor Ford had a blue one in their showroom when I was buying my truck. I was pissed it wasn't outside, I wanted to drive it to see what they're all about. Seem like a fun little DD.

Highly rotatable, more so than the Focus ST.

Awesome ride. As much as I want one of these, and it's really bad. I do need a truck. I complain that my Patriot is to small right now. This is more fun but smaller.
Congrats on the pick up though. I'd do a white one for sure.

I completely understand. Luckily we have another vehicle the wife drives that has 3 rows for when we needs tons of space. The wife calls it the clown car. I can fit my two kids and her in it. I am 6'4 and kids are 11 and 7 years old. She is reminded off clowns stuffed into a mini or something at a circus. Honestly I am comfortable in it.

Did you shop this against the Focus or were you all in on the Party?

I actually owned a non ST focus for 3 years. So I was familiar with a lot of aspects of that vehicle. I mainly went went with Fiesta as I enjoy the styling and the lighter weight vehicle. But really the man factor was I wanted a very low payment. Something I could not obtain in the Focus ST.

Great choice very nice! I actually drove these back to back with the Focus ST and I preferred the Fiesta. Such an amazingly fun car to drive, you really just need to drive it to believe it.

I believe that was the same assessment Top Gear had when they drove the Fiesta. A little go kart.

The shorter wheelbase really makes it rotate compared to the Focus.

I'd take a Fiesta ST over a BRZ any day of the week.

Now, you need the GTX2867R turbo swap kit for it.

I've also got a BOV on the car for the ricey side of me lol. In the future I'd like to do springs and a front splitter. Oh and I've got an exhaust because this little 1.6 likes to make crackles and pops.

The car is a blast, I've had mine almost a year now and have put close to 20k miles on mine. You'll definitely enjoy yours!
