2 Dark Headlight styles for 08+ ??

Alright, this is starting to really bother me.

Does anybody know for fact, or can shed light on this: Is there in fact 2 styles of black/black chrome headlights for the 08-11 foci?

See photo below of recently acquired "pair" of headlights:
LEFT: Ford Marked Gloss Jet black headlights. RIGHT: No Manuf. Markings, shiny chrome like blackish/gray (very similar to the dark chrome grilles) sorry, cell pic....


And no, that is not just glare on the right one, the colors are that far off. I have asked the seller twice where he got them, but no responses.

Unfortunately, it probably is a knock-off piece. Without the factory stampings or some sort of part# on there somewhere....doesn't seem legit. I can only say that the two that are factory available are the black housings (like the one you have that's stamped) and the regular silver housings offered when this generation of Focus hit the lots.

It could be a true Ford part sold as a blemished item, but how do you confirm that?

I was afraid of this.....also, towards the bottom of the lens, It has DOT, H13 type, ETC, it has no ford emblem there either, though, the left lens does...So, it must be a replacement, NOT ford though....If I could find a match I would use it too, its still very nice..

Is there anything on the back of the dustcaps covering the bulbs? Ford even stamps those with a part number.

Only thing on the back is a quick bulb type # where each goes, IE, h13, then the 168 for side marker , then the 3157 for parking/turn signal. There is a strange possible Part #, but I cant get it right now, its at home.

Absolutely, positively not a single "Ford" mark anywhere on it.

been tossing this around for a few hours. And I seem to be finding OE replacement parts, they are made by a company called "Replacement" well, thats what the guy from the phillipines told me: made by "replacement manufacturer company" LOL I kept asking Yea, but who makes them LOL So....I dont know what to do. Guess I can try to sell it, but wouldn't feel right selling to a FF member UNLESS they want to bake it and take it apart, otherwise, it wont match the OEM black headlights.

Maybe you can trade it to a scrap yard for a genuine one?

Few more pics of light in question, Somebody has to know something!



Found possible part # here- reads: 20-6918 B, other then this, these are the only "part #" on them:

Good look at their "black chrome color"




Dont get me wrong, the headlight is very nice, but without a match, its pretty much scrap no?

Ok, think I found the manufacturer.

On the front of the lens cover, very bottom, it says TYC 20-6918, TYC is a european company that makes OE style headlight fixtures......
