yeah... theyre doing very good! st3's on back order, some buyers getting shitty gifts to calm them down, barely any at the show room floors, small turbo if you want to get some mad tyte jdm power out of it, kind of limited space blah blah blah and i guess its too early to tell if theyre doing good... why? how many have been sold? 50? 60? and none over 3-5k miles so no telling if theyre a time bomb or not

wow. I will officially be getting it for my wife, but I'm gonna probably want to drive it a lot more than my gti. I ride a lot of motorcycles, so I am drawn to cars even smaller than the golf

one nice thing I noticed- the cup holder on the driver side door (the one that always apparently rubs against your left leg in the normal Fiesta) IS GONE!

please ford DO NOT PUT this in the us model. ------ CUP HOLDERS

I am fairly certain it's coming. From talking with people I know that work with suppliers of parts only used on U.S. spec Ford products, it should be coming here. (Or Ford is dropping $$$$ to develop parts for no reason.)

The K03 on it is stock on how many other cars? SCT put down 253whp on a stock one with just a tune. If they can get it to 300hp at the crank with mods, that's solid on a K03, and would make a quick car. (If you want mad tyte jdm style powah, there will be turbo upgrades.)

you ever had a little 4banger with a small turbo before? and had it tuned? its going to feel awesome the 1st few weeks, after your body gets used to 253whp and what ever tq your pushing itll feel like cr@p, your going to want more and more. quick car? little ricer dudes on builtnotbought hondas will pull on you on every gear, youre going to want more and more after that... then youll hit a wall after $$$$ dumped into it in hopes that the little k03 can push out some more. Ive been there before, i know what im talking about
