Well right now there is a "euro" suspension kit from frpp, as well as exhaust and short throw shifter. There is a 3d carbon body kit, various intakes and exhaust after market as well. It has the same 4 x 108 as the mk1 focus, and many people put on svt rims. There is a European company called pumaspeed that a few people have imported from, mostly ST170 (svt focus) brake adapters. A very few are running stock fiesta calipers on 300 mm disk brakes up front, and converted the rear drum to svt disc as well. Not sure if anyone figured out how to get the ebrake working. And last but not least is cam shafts from the same euro company. All said and done you would be better off buying a fiesta st if it is ever released here. Like I said before dont expect much in terms of turbo kits or superchargers since the pcm is locked up tight. On a fiesta forum I follow daily most people have the same issue with the auto tranny you guys have with the mk3 focus, (believe its the same one transmission.) From what I gather the fiestas were selling good up till about April, The subcompact market is getting pretty big now and ford seems to have given up mostly on the fiesta, and with incentives on the new focus many people are skipping right over the small fiesta and getting into a larger car with similar features for the same price basically. However I do enjoy having a somewhat unpopular car. I see maybe 1 or 2 a day, where as I see countless focus, lol.
