We should change this thread to - "Does anyone know of a 'cost-effective' way to retro-fit the Focus with LEDs and HIDs without it looking like crap?"

You're not telling me you ACTUALLY PAID 4k on these? Please don't tell me you did...

I mean FFS you can get the LED/HID headlights for a S4 for only 1200 a pair...4k is pushing you into what their full LED units might cost.

4k on these...yikes.

Yea, without the auto level assemblies to boot. Not that America needs that, thats a Europe mandated requirement I think.

Now, these assemblies sure as hell do not cost 4k total.

I mean for example, the Audi A6 spec headlights, HID and LED equipped, run between 400-600 a side. S4 units are...1200 for both I believe.

I think they priced them that high on purpose just to prevent people grabbing them for no reason, or maybe Ford thinks theirs are THAT expensive.

For my Veloster its 550 for both, closer to 800 for ones that are fully LED/HID.

So yea, I couldn't explain why Focii ones are that expensive and why anyone would actually do it.

I agree - PICS or it didn't happen - but then again... why would he lie about something like that... I think we're all just curious to see it with our own eyes and drool over the fact that he'll be the first one to ever carry out such a sentence.. LOL

Kudos to you Cappa if you did get them... I don't know if I'd do it... If I had $4,000 lying around to spend on my Focus... I'd probably reach out to ROUSH and talk them into throwing in that Supercharger and Exhaust kit - FTW!

I did see these on that Alibaba.com site, I wish they'd put individual prices on them and/or start selling them on Ebay... :)

http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/63...arts_head.html

http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/63...5113005AF.html

I've been trying to contact the 'supplier' to see if they could give me a price for a set, but to no avail...

I got through and got a response, I forgot the price exactly but I remember it was outrageous.
