Impressive work.

Wish you were closer to me, got mine coming end of April and no doubt the dealership will destroy the paint

Spirit Blue really does look good, especially in the sun when that flake pops.

Very nice work. Looks excellent now.

Nice use of products too, old skool waxes and products you don't hear many professionals using the products you mentioned nowadays.

The Fiesta is an excellent car, but IMO the ST is overpowered for the size of the car.
That makes it potentially dangerous to drive unless you have exceptional skill.

A version with a smaller engine would be cheaper and more comfortable.

Thanks, I've generally narrowed the products down over the last 12 years to the tried and tested, although with the new generation of coatings you have to move with the times, still like to mix it up with old and new though.

The engine is a 1.6 producing around 180 bhp, I'm pretty sure the chassis and components have been developed to handle the power. Your opinion about needing exceptional skill to drive it and avoid the potential dangers, is a little dramatic. Never has a customer remarked that they are a handleful to drive.

At £16,000 I wouldn't regard them as particularly expensive, they do a smaller engine with better comfort- http://www.ford.co.uk/ConfigureyourCar/Fiesta/Studio

They also do a manufacturer approved Mountune Upgrade, ups power to a max of 215bhp on overboost, Supposedly well worth it.
