Hello FFers!
I got a mailing from Ford saying that I can reserve a new Fiesta here in the US starting on December 2, the same day the car is unveiled at the LA Auto Show. Hopefully that means the "build" function on the Ford webpage will be up and running so we can see the options and get a firm price.

Anyway, does anyone know if the US Fiesta will be metric or SAE? Is the Euro Fiesta metric? Are we going to be able to bolt on Euro parts to our Fiestas?

Good question ... I wouldn't see a reason why we couldn't bolt Euro parts on the US Spec Fiestas.

That's sweet by the way also that you are going to be able to play with the Fiesta.

Is that set in stone that you will actually get one?

Hey guys, thanks for the welcome. Different assembly lines, suppliers, laws, measurement system, different engine, emissions, etc. can all lead interchangeability problems. I've driven the Euro Fiesta and liked it but I don't think I could ever reserve one without seeing it in person. There are a lot of questions I have about the Fiesta so we'll see when things are unveiled. I also want to see what's up with the Mazda 2.

As that the fiesta is one of the first "same platform" cars ALL the parts should change about. The only thing that will be different in the US Is U.S. specific stuff such as our stupid crash bumper laws
