My low beams are almost better than his high beams despite the fact his car cost literally twice as much. I would not make a change strictly for looks, only for a substantial lighting boost. Form is 2nd to function to me.
The Bosch HID Projectors in the BMW's are by far the least favorable HID projectors that most retrofitters know of. I've seen BMW owners upgrade to Lexus projectors or Mitsubishi Projectors Just because there OEM BMW HID's SUCK! so i know for sure retrofitting a 2012 focus will be a upgrade and make everything legal and have a great cut off
