08 focus OEM factory bi xenon headlight unit
 
anyone know where i can purchase a set of bi xenon headlights that fit the 08 focus as i dont want to retro fit the morimoto H1 with projectors?

I don't think any focus came stock with the HIDs.

Your options are live with crappy halogens. Eagle Eyes. Plug and Play HID kit (please don't lol) and retrofit.

remember they have a different 08 than we do with different options.

have you tried looking on ebay or a salvage yard for one being parted? that may be your best bet unless you want to pay a rediculous amount through ford.

here's a set that might be worth it for ya.

I am so confused by the different models in other countries lol. Feel like we get the boring ones!

Yeah there the ones iv been looking at, 175 where as projectors, HIDs, ballasts, set you back around 166 plus taking your headlight apart and fitting the projectors ect, id rather buy the complete st3 headlight unit and fit them :) saves hassle and time, time = money :) (id end up breaking something lol) and some are totally different to ours, thanks for the reply guys

United States drivers get completely hosed compared to people in Europe that buy the same car. Our versions don't have as many cool features when compared to European models. But most European cars have those "little extras" so Ford has to add them or they wouldn't sell as many overseas. That and some of the features aren't available because of DOT/Government regulations. I know my buddies BMW he bought in the states is pretty watered down compared to the same model you would but in Germany. [mecry]

Sorry that was [offtopic] but it had to be said.
