That's really not the same as your sedan though LOL







The only similarity is the shell. . . just

I was debating on dropping a ls motor in my focus but I don't think I can fit a v6 or a v8 in my engin bay but hey maybe one day when I have a crap tone of money to do what ever I want to do I might buy a focus and build it out and make my own version of an RS but mid engin......someday......someday....

Let me explain why. Over on hidplanet I have read of three separate people ordering lights from them and having issues with fit/finish/build quality and delays. I sincerely hope that this works out for you, but be aware they have a shaky record, at least in my books from what I've seen.

On the plus side though, they seem to handle the issues one way or another. Just be aware that you may need to stand your ground if an issue arises.

Here is a fitting example of someone who got lights for their MK3 focus from TLF if you feel like doing some reading; First time HID installation--need prep and installation help!!
Thanks for the heads up. I've actually already talked to him and he showed me that. I won't be getting HIDs, just the black housing with LED strip and blacked-out bits. So hopefully mine will be okay. I've seen some problems with them but I've also seen them try to fix their problems.

KK_SilverDevil_712 I must admit this kit looks good on the hatch. Look at that, finally one fits the hatch.

Mines on a sedan.
