Projector Headlights

I was considering these projector headlights: http://www.carmoddirect.com/products...s-(Black).html

Wondering if anyone has them, or something similar on a second gen Focus?

Yes many people have those headlights but if you look them up on eBay you can get them for much cheaper just search projector headlights on this site.

Unless you do a retrofit, these are the only aftermarket projector/halo combo available. They're all made by a manufacturer called Eagle Eyes, and to be completely honest with you, I wouldn't buy them from that site if I were you.

I got mine on Ebay, unopened, for $275. $310 after shipping. They say there's "some wiring" for the halos, but it's really just a matter of moving a tab from one side to another. Easiest thing in the world.

I've had a set for about 6 months and put some HIDs in them, so feel free to ask any questions you may have!

Thanks, but I was just using that more for the picture. How were the bulbs that came with the headlights or would you just recommend getting HIDs right away?

The bulbs were alright, but since they're projectors, I felt like they were going to waste without getting HIDs in there.

I went with DDMtuning's 35w kit (http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/DD...ast-35W-or-55W), which is really inexpensive compared to others. They come with a lifetime guarantee. From what I've heard from people, they're hit or miss on quality, but mine have been amazing with no issues.

You may have to do a slight mod to the bracket that holds the bulb in if you go with HIDs (because they're slightly longer than halogen bulbs), but it's an easy fix.

yep get them at Ebay and get a DDM tuning kit. It's a really nice set up. The only problem I had was that one of the HALO inverters blew out. But you can buy replacements here:

http://www.elwirepros.com/halo-inverter.html

It's for dual HALOs but you can just leave one disconnected. They work really well!

Not gonna lie, I definitely just bought this pair because they were $75 cheaper USD SHIPPED than any others I've seen.

Now to make them a great gift or use them as a backup! Thanks for posting this
