Projector Headlight enclosures on ebay...
 
UPDATE 3/10/13: The chinese enclosures are sketchy and buyers are reporting failures immediately and no customer service. Hopefully I can still edit this OP when reliable parts hit the market.

I thought some of you might find these interesting. I searched and didn't find them on the site yet. Please add information on any other options you've found. I'm not too interested in getting them but I think it's nice to see the aftermarket parts for the MK3 picking up the pace.

Price is for a pair minus the bulbs and ballasts. ($607 + $199 shipping)

I think the main issue that people run into with setups like these are that the LED's have a tendency to go out prematurely... At least from what I've seen. They look really cool though! It would be cool to see someone try them out...

Wow, they do look really cool, especially on that black.

They'd be cool if they weren't $600 plus $200 in shipping. If they were $300 shipped then they'd be worth it, but at $800 total I don't think so. It'd be cheaper to get a pair of regular lights off eBay and do your own projector conversion I'd think.

Coming from japan/china they would take at least a month to get here. I've always hated the wait when ordering from there.

I saw some on ebay for 300. About a week or two ago.

Too much Considering you still have to buy parts.

Another listing, http://www.ebay.com/itm/2012-Focus-L...f6cae9&vxp=mtr

I guess there is 4-5 different sellers listing these. They range from 549. and up.

Heres another verison http://www.ebay.com/itm/Super-CCFL-L...c57fbf&vxp=mtr

Wonder why they won't show them in the light? I see how they light up I want to see how they look on the car...

Scroll down on the ebay listing link. It shows them installed on a black Focus.
