Meathead Apparently Auto Zone has them in a 2 pack. They are called "Load Resistors". If they don't have them, perhaps radio shack.

RAF_S197 Question guys, to he the rear signal lights and brake lights to work did you need only a resistor or flasher relay too?

Dalamar I always get my LED / HID from http://www.ddmtuning.com/ they cater to BMW but their lights work with anything

They sell resisters and LED flashers also

the only problem is, in the rear, you will get a message on screen saying "tail light out" because of the low voltage. but they look so great, i'll deal with it.

I just bought my Focus and thinking of doing the same thing you did, but I live in Mexico and I'm really looking forward to see how it looks like, can you please load your photos again?

Sorry, you're right it was the turn signal LED that didn't work. The brake and backup lights were fine. I tried it right after I bought the car and it didn't work the first time I tried it so I just gave up and went back to the stock bulbs. I don't remember if I left in the LED tails or not. I'll have to check.
