^ Going to be in the US Fiesta next year according to Autoweek. Only thing that bothers me is the "maintence free" timing belt that runs through oil.
At the Ford Nationals last year I drove most of the cars/suvs they brought through an autocross course they had set up. Eventhough all were auto trans, the Fiesta was the most fun. A turbo 3 with a M/T would be a blast and get good mpg.
