Hello All

I am selling my 2016 FiST in White Platinum in order to get into the RS, I'll do my best to be brief but detailed.

2016 Fiesta ST bought new in October of this year (2015)
Colors/Options:
White Platinum Tri Coat
Recaro's
Moonroof
Nav
Currently sitting around 2500 miles, but it is my DD so it will go up when I need to drive it (which I will be avoiding as much as possible during sale).

Extras:
ST All Weather Mats (front, rear, cargo) ($200ish)
Lathewerks Custom Elite VIP Shift Knob ($190)
Boosted Designs Dead Pedal ($35)
Vinyl Roof Wrap ($300)
MKII Shark Fin Antenna from Visual Garage ($87)
"Opticoat Pro +" on all exterior painted surfaces ($1250)
"Opti-Glass Pro" on all exterior glass ($100)

This was my first new car and my family and friends always poke fun at me for how careful I am with it. I was very careful on break in, keep it super clean inside and out (still smells new, non smoker), and it has had no experience with the track, auto-x, street racing or power mods. First oil change was at 500 miles with full synthetic from the dealership, the car has no mechanical, electrical, or general problems. The car has no dents, scratches, bumper marks, paint stains, etc. It looks better than new, and is much more protected than new as well thanks to the opti-coat.

The Opti-Coat treatments were professionally installed and are under warranty for 5 years. Here is a link to my car on the installers website: http://distinctivdetailing.com/detailing-samples/2016-ford-fiesta-st-platinum-white/

The only negative that can be said of the car is that a few of the wheels were bitten by the rough San Francisco streets and have some slight chips on the edge ( I will add pictures tomorrow when its not dark and raining **posted**).

That is about it, selling my car, meticulously cared for, barely broken in, still ripe with that new car smell!

ASKING PRICE:
$21,000

KBB only gets as new as a 2015 model, and prices the car at 20,294 to private party, that is of course without any of the extra's listed above (I would be willing to part out the extras and take their value off if a buyer has no interest in them, still have all original parts ((mats, antenna, shift knob)) )

I am financing the car at the moment and would prefer to sell the car outright and just pay off the loan note and transfer the title to the new buyer, HOWEVER , if you would rather work out a transfer of the loan (which I'm sure you could refinance to a better rate than I got) and take over payments we can talk further and work on different numbers (Whatever the $21,000 equivalent would be, something like 5.5k and take over payments, I'm paying $271 a month). Whatever way I cut it I'm losing money but its what I need to do to make it into the RS.

StephenP,

Nice looking car! I plan to put the Opti-Coat Pro + on my RS.

Just one question: Were you not aware of the RS when you bought the FiST ?

You're going ot take a hit even at $21K, but I hope you get close to what you are asking.



YMMV,

Your hunch is mostly correct. I was aware of the RS in terms that it was an idea, I somehow got lost in 2015 with tunnel vision for the FiST, then via the fiestaSTforum I clicked to a thread mentioning it was real and happening, I placed my order the next day lol. Most certainly losing money, but I've lost a lot more money for far lesser causes so I'm good with it.

And thanks for the welcome :)
