HID Projetors

Any recommendations for retrofits on the forum? If not any vendors anybody would recommend? Looking for a complete kit, plug n play.

Please no plug & play kit, only retrofit...

Regards,
Your fellow Focus driver which appreciate not being blinded during night time...





EDIT: Go Morimoto , their quality of projector lenses is very good! ---> TRS--> theretrofitsource.com

That's what most of the people here used for retrofitting projectors, including mine.

HID Projetors



Take these away from me. Broken tab on driver side. Tab is in tact on passenger side but is iffy if you bend the wrong way. "Water marking" on the outside of lens. It's not water, just a defective spot on the lens. The spots aren't really noticeable at all. Probably can be buffed out. These were going to go to my brother but he decided to get a lemon (Jeep). $285 plus shipping

Installed are the Morimoto Mini H1 6.0 projectors. No LEDs. Just the projector and all black trim with turn signal.

cableguy is your source for MK3 projectors

By any means do not buy ebay projectors headlights because those are cheap quality, have dim LEDs, are designed for halogen bulbs, so using HIDs in these projectors will not look nice as you would think, and these headlamps tend to peel and or crack.

If you want to go HIDs, get retrofit, and get in contact with Cableguy to get that process started

Keep in mind in regards to HIDs in all our MK3's, our cars hate HIDs, and you will likely get "bulb out" errors, flickering, other errors or warnings randomly while driving, sometimes one HID bulb will not turn on, and you will need to get the right HID kit, relays, possibly resistors. I really wish our cars were more friendly towards HIDs but that is not the case

But if you can find the right set up for you, Id sure love to see the pics when you are done
