The ST170s aren't HID equipped... nor are they recomended for an HID upgrade. Now the signal indicator on the ST170s is amber... but I know you can get a clear lens for them, and replace it.

Here are my HIDs on my SVT... you can hardley see the amber in the turn signal indicator, but that is just the bulb that does that, you can get a set of silver bulbs and lose that look.

ST170s all come with the indicator. Are you just looking for a dual bulb head lamp?

well......
 
i'm looking for HID's that were optional on the SVT.

Ooooo, those... Mach HIDS. They were the only factory HID headlight on the Focus, and comes with the indicator. See Sonic's post about the bulb color.

As for other options, I think Hella is the only aftermarket producer of xenon HID headlights for the Focus.

Technically you could get them as an option on the ST170...

The indicators don't have an amber lens, the yellow appearance comes from the bulb. If you were to put a LED bulb in, or one of those amber bulbs that doesn't look yellow you wouldn't be able to tell unless it was on.

Yea, when I read the title, I saw ST170 and headlights, so the first thing to come to mind was the classic ST170 lights. Somehow I skipped over the HID part in the title. First time I've seen someone reference them on a ST170, since they were availible here too.

Was just wondering where you got your HID's... are they available straight from ford racing?
