Default Ford Fiesta: Build/survey interesting options

http://www.fordvehicles.com/2011fies...on=chooseyours

I find it very interesting that Ford is asking consumers if they want:

Performance Tuned Suspension
Turbo Kit
Sports-tuned exhaust

I think Ford is really listening to consumers...finally!

There's no way an upgraded suspension, exhaust, wheels or stereo are going to be worth paying for when aftermarket options are available. I picked the things that are hardest to get in good quality from the aftermarket that I would want in a small car.

I am more interested in influencing Ford's decisions past 2011 (since the options/accessories on the 2011 are probably already nailed down and too late to change) - offering a dealer-installed turbo kit add-on is one thing, but even better would be offering a turbo'ed motor from the factory. I could see them contemplating decisions like that if there are enough people asking for them now.

Looks like Turbo Kit and Sony Stereo systems are leading the way

Car should come in 3 models

Base, Sport n/a, Sport turbo
15s for base, 16s for sport
Push button should be standard for all
Performance suspension standard on sports

Looks like a neat little compact

I would hope there is a properly designed turbo engine to go with the kit; say around 1.6L. That should be a trim level for the car rather than an option.

This is assuming the FIA doesn't reverse course yet again regarding WRC spec

Cool took it. Went with 5 door Push Button Start, Turbo Kit, and Performance Suspension (though in reality if I were to ever buy one a I probably wouldn't get the performance options but it'd be nice to have the opportunity). Between the Fiesta,the new Fusion, and hopefully some more Euro models in the future, I'm starting to wonder if I'm going to break the pledge I made when I got rid of my 93 Escort and got my Subaru that I'd never buy a Ford again. They're definitely starting to make me wonder if I can stick with that pledge.

Edit-Man is that Sedan lame compared to the hatchback!

Why wasn't this box listed?

Fiesta ST, 3 Door Hatch.

That would be the only box I would check. The other stuff is just fluff.

The 5 door is on my short list for my next car. If it's as good as the global platform, sign me up, give me my work discount and I might replace my car and my wife's Nissan with a green and a burgundy one.

Yeah, I assume Performance Suspension means lowering springs. I'm still waiting for someone to use the Mini Cooper model on their hatch back, sell a N/A one, and a turbo one, but have all the options interchangeable, so the N/A doesn't suck (ie, you can get the S package suspension and LSD in the N/A model).

I was incredibly close to picking up a Mini, but for the price of what I wanted, I couldn't justify it. No N/A hatch should be over $20k.

I like that they consider WV and NC the "Northeast". No NY/NJ/CT/MA events? Lame.

Woah, they just added locations...nice.

None in Ohio? Maybe they are still working on the list...seeing that it just went live.

I wouldn't trust a dealer installed ANYTHING.

Once had a dealer try to convince me to let them install a moonroof. "Yeah we can do it here, just cut a hole in the roof and install the glass".
