      When I purchased last April, I got a base FiST for $21,455 USD before tax and tags with 0% interest for 60 months. The other option was to get $1000 more in incentives but without the 0% interest.

      I dig this. What I am really curious about is how much initial shaft play there is in the turbo assembly both in and out and side to side. From what I have seen in other posts, the tolerances are...

      I caught a lot of flack for mine as well...mostly from people who weren't into cars. Then I let them drive it and their opinion changed :)

      What part of VW don't you trust on this? It has been said, VW does not make the turbos. If anything, you should like turbo vendor A over turbo vendor B because of X, Y and Z.

      I'm reading his comment with a heavy layer of sarcasm :laugh:

      It really shouldn't be a problem for anyone but people are lazy piles of garbage.

      LOL - if any car needs to be babied to this degree, it isn't worth owning. I'm not saying drive it like you stole it 100% of the time but a good romp through 1 & 2 is good fun.

      I believe a lot of the Fiesta problems were with the dual clutch tranny seals leaking. And while the MFT is vastly improved, it still has its quirks and even needs reset once every few months when it...

      Seems like a typical reaction to an impending accident, stand on the brakes. SUV in front of the Fiesta didn't get completely out of the through lane, Fiesta guy caught it late and had to swerve to...

      The major point here is a daily driver - the R might be the better track car at the end of the day but for my day to day driving, the FiST is just a lot of fun.

      Not necessarily, most people could have had the FoST for nearly the same price as the FiST at equal trim levels.
