Will aftermarket Projector Headlights be availble for 2012-2013 cars before to long?
 
I love a nice pair of aftermarket projector headlights. Ebay has nothing and I don't see any where else. I think it would greatly improve the look of the cars

Products already exist, they have been listed on ebay as well as alibaba. The quality of these chinese assemblies is sub par and the first announced set in the us had to be sent back to the tune of $170 in shipping to try and recover the $570 or so purchase price, as they shorted out and fried the circuit board for the LED strips and the lamps themselves.

0/10 would not recommend.

The only viable solution at the moment is the o.e. parts, but they are very expensive new from Ford.

Yes. They already do. Ebay has a bunch of them for the Mk3. There are a number of threads concerning this very topic.

A minute goes by while waiting for the slow start hids to reach full brightness the passenger brow goes out. Look at the front and the halo is still lit then the brow flickers back on then does the half power dim then fade to dead. Pulled the rubber cover off the back and it stunk like only burning electronics can. so the turn signal and upper brow are toast but the halo and hids work perfectly. nice cutoff on the projectors too. Anyway old ones are back in waiting for the holiday in China to be over. F in epic fail

I'll say I'm quite disappointed in the lack of aftermarket parts for the 2012 focus, such as projector headlights. The only ones that do exist are expensive and crazy cheap quality.

perhaps the OP's question should have been 'the availability of QUALITY' lights?
not the cheapo chinese ones....

I would like to do some projectors from the retrofit source as I think they look tremendously better than just throwing an HID bulb into a headlamp. But I am kind of worried about cracking open the headlamps...
