I would really like to see one. I am just curious about what exactly the "sport package" is comprised of on U.S. Fiesta. The Euro Fiesta 3dr with a sport package was tested last year by Automobile magazine and they described different bushings/sway bars/dampers etc. I ordered mine blind (w/sport pkg) in the hope some uprated parts might find their way here as well. I would like to believe that it is more than just speed control and 15" alloy wheels. That is all I know for sure.

I have Fiesta brochure now courtesy of Fairlane Ford :D
anyhow the NA Fiesta has a "Sport Appearance Package" not to be confused with the "Sport tune with lowered ride height" suspension available on the UK Fiesta 3-door.

Ok. I understand the difference now. If I dont have anything on paper I can study and look at several times the subtle points dont stick in my mind. I am more tuned to paper/Ink than silicon/LCD!

Go to Ford - Cars, SUVs, Trucks & Crossovers | Ford Vehicles.

Click on "Brochures"

Select "2011 Fiesta"

Been up for a month and a half now, not particularly hard to find...
I apologize if I misunderstood the tone of your comment, but this forum is for people who are interested in the Fiesta to discuss it and share information. There is no reason to make someone feel like an idiot for asking a question that, in your opinion, was not hard to find the answer to.

I am cool with it. I went back and looked at the archived article. It described the option as "sport package". So, at that time I had scribbled down "order sport package" on a post-it and stuck it on my cork wall board. That became my point of reference, I am not very high tech in many ways. Oh, so many ways.

My local dealer got some in late last week. I picked up two of them already.

You are missing a key word - it's a Sport Appearance Package.

Suspension is common but you get 15 Alum wheels, LED parking lights, decklid/hatch spoiler and cruise control.

Well, I was being helpful to the original poster, and yes, sarcastic, to the poster that put a scanned (?) brochure on Google Docs that is of crap quality, since that took many times more effort than telling someone where they could find it would have.

But since you mentioned it, is going to a fan forum really in any way, shape, or form easier than going to the manufacturer's website to look? Why, logically, would it be here instead of on Ford's site? It took more time to ask the question than it would have to get the brochure downloaded.

And thanks for the condescending tone, isn't that against your opening statement? Here's a definition you might be interested in.

Some people just like printed material once in a while, considering how tethered we are to our computers these days.

My local dealer is now treating the brochures like the cars themselves: "Should have a brochure any day now."

Maybe I should have reserved a brochure? :)

yeah, I asked a few times for one and the dealer says they have not got them in yet. I think my car will arrive before the brochure!

I have mine. It was the last one they had in the rack (maybe the only one they got?). This dealer was allotted only 2 Fiestas to sell (Did I mention that I hate the dealer allotment system? :p ). Maybe Ford limited the number of brochures they got as well.

I just had a brain think!

What do you suppose that an old school , dead tree book of pictures for the Fiesta might just be a rare thing? I bet ford printed very few because they are expensive ( glossy, heavy stock, full color, lavishly illustrated!) and cumbersome. Sure they have always been free to take but they have gotta cost some coin to produce AND they cannot be updated like digital. Maybe paper catalogs are toast? or close to being history. Man! I first fell in love with cars through the dealer catalogs. It never cost anything to dream (they paid for it) when I was only ten or so.

I can't really understand the appeal of a "printed" brochure. They offer less information than what you can find online and they are outdated about 5 minutes after they're printed.

They're sort of like phonebooks. Mine go from the front door step to the recycle bin in about 15 seconds. I wish they would ban phonebooks.

Back in the old days, Ford would send boxes upon boxes of brochures to dealers. Now, they send very few and I think the dealers pay for them. Besides, they are full of overly airbrushed/rendered images that are not all that accurate. There is also zero useful data in them. The European Ford brochures are like an engineering manual full of pictures that border on art. The US versions are a couple of pages of rendered images with no data. I am ok with not having one.

I do have a collection of 2000 Focus brochures, and they used to fold out into a big ZX3 poster. There is still a few hanging up at my dad's house, next to some WRC Focus stuff.

Psss.. I think a Fiesta brochure just reached Battle Creek by train this morning! ;)

Haha Marc. :) I probably have at least a dozen 2000 MY Focus brochures. Thanks to you and another contact in the UK, I have current EU Fiesta and 99-01 EU Focus stuff.

I love printed brochures. Especially when they are collectors items:

I got some of those before Ford told the dealers to remove the front covers.
