I like those APC taillights. I really don't like the Euro taillights. I hate amber. My goal is to rid my car of all amber colored lenses.

I'd really love to see these on a Focus. I think they look sick as hell.

Painted Mach HIDs



My personal favorite, Eurostars

I got a used malfunctioning clear set.


Red nightshades and some tinkering later.

Im not familiar with them, they should fit but I wouldn't get 10000k hids. Going to be more bluish...not as bright as 4200-6000k. Also the projectors in the eBay ones usually are lower quality, not as good as ones your could retrofit like minis

I love the look of my lights, but I seriously need to get better bulbs or something cause its pathetic how much light there isn't.
These lights (or the closest I can find) are on protuning lab, under ford focus projector headlights. item number 2LHP-FOC00G-TM

yeah i planned on swapping out the bulbs with 5k 55w hids off of ddm tuning and either selling the 10k or keeping them as back ups just in case one of the bulbs go out and have to send them in. because it would take like a month in order to get a new bulb from ddm haha.

Zook......those are eBay mach-a-likes. They look ok but as you said light output is horrible. I had a pair of these for a couple years. Unfortunately only thing you can do is either get better lights or swap out the projector for a quality project. New bulbs will do nothing as the cheap/poorly designed lens does not focus and project the light properly.

This is a pic of one of my stock headlights that I polished the lenses, painted the inside black and custom fit turn signals inside the housings since I was swapping to a euro grill and would no longer have turns in my grill. And the turns use leds bulbs and do work. Sorry I haven't taken a pic with them on the car.
