Modified Fiesta ST Detailed - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This Ford Fiesta ST came in a little while ago for and Enhancement detail to bring a bit of gloss back to the Frozen White paintwork.
The car has a few nice modifications to make it handle very well, and kick out 350 BHP. Not bad for a 1.6!

Onto the car.

Great work and great write up, lots of nice pics. Although I have to say that your EZ wheel brush has seen better days, lol. Seen some serious hammer had that thing!

Fabulous work fella and that's some power output, 350 BHP is mental for a car of that size. Only thing is I'm not sold on the wheels.

Love the look of this car. I bet its mental to use.
If I was to get a little hatch again I would really consider one of these.

Great work as always mate.

Thanks everyone

These ST's really are great cars. I've been lucky enough to drive a few and they're so much fun, and pretty economical too.
I'd love one after my mk6 ST.
