Yes it is. 2014 ST3. I really like it.
The sound system and the massive radio console aren't great but everything else is lovely.
I want to put new speakers in, can you replace the radio bit with a screen?
Also going to get the calipers painted I think.

Its a great looking car if you like the understated look. I had a 2013 Fiesta ST and you can definitely see the family resemblance.

There’s two main types, large or small screen, personally I’m happy with my original unit.
Thank you, appreciate that, exactly what I was thinking.
Could you tell where I could look to get an idea of price etc, and where I could go to get one fitted please (garage/audio specialist)?

Welcome to the club, nice looking ST you got yourself there.
Being a 2014, I'm guessing it's fitted with the Sync 1 Radio System with the small screen.
As per #sttwoton you can upgrade to Sync 2 or Sync 3 with the larger 8" screen.
I have some Sync 2 parts left over from my Sync 2 to Sync 3 upgrade if you're interested - For Sale Sync 2 APIM, Media Hub & 2 x Sat Nav Maps SD Cards - £100 + Postage
I believe that other items would be required to complete the Sync 2 upgrade, one of them being the plastic bezel part to match the larger screen.
If you do some searches in the club forums or google searches you should find plenty of info on Sync 1 to Sync 2 upgrade.
Cost wise, you're probably looking around £200 ish for Sync 2 upgrade, and £500+ for the Sync 3 upgrade.

If your budget can stretch to it, I'd recommend Sync 3 as it's a far superior system and also has Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility, hence why I upgrade mine. However the Sync 2 is a worthwhile upgrade from the basic Sync 1 system.

EBay is where I saw those systems, as for fitting, pretty easy, they’re just plug and play, check for some videos on YouTube, diy and save yourself a few quid.

Thanks so much for all the help, I've looked into it and I'm going to go with the sync 3 option. I need to save some pennies and do it in the new year (y)
If you haven't found him already, I'd recommend kevwynne37 on eBay.
I got my Sync 3 and associated parts from him (Sync 2 to Sync 3), he's brilliant, very knowledgeable about these upgrades and can supply the Sync 3 fully updated with latest Software & Maps, and can customise the Start-Up screens to ST, RS or Ford Logo. I'm sure he'd be able to advise of other parts required to compete a Sync 1 to Sync 3 upgrade and likely have all parts available to complete.
He's negotiable for discounts as well, if you're ordering all parts from him.
