9008 bulb HID's install on 2010 ?

Hi everybody,

Newbie to the Focus world here


I'm looking into installing HIDs on the car, and I'm wondering if anybody else did this already on a 2010 or late-model (2008+) Focus .... any problems ?


Thanks in advance ....

yeah, should be plug and play. i believe the only hid kit that doesnt fit directly are H1's. you must file down the housing where the bulb inserts. the wire that hangs from the hid bulb needs some room.

but for your application, you shouldnt have any problems. well, except with the law

Well, I haven't had any law problems running HIDs in my car (07 Charger RT AWD), so I'm hoping that the Focus will be OK too ... the Focus is actually my Mom's, but I drive it a lot lately and night-time lighting is terrible, especially since I'm used to the HIDs in the Charger ...
