And also, out of curiosity, what colour temp did you get for your fogs and low-beams? You fogs look very very blue (8000k?) and the pics make your low-beams look almost green haha. And in regards to your last edit on your main post about your high-beams not having HIDs, that's how it is for the Focus because we use a dual-filament bulb, there's no HID high-beam available. What some companies do is attach a second halogen bulb to the HID bulb to act as a high-beam. Looks silly/stupid to me, but to each their own:


The other thing I wanted to say regarding HID high-beam, is that it isn't a good idea in the first place, as HID bulbs take time to "warm up" to their full intensity and power. That means that if you flash-to-pass with an HID high-beam, it wouldn't be very bright flashing anyways. Also, HID bulbs and ballasts don't like being turned on and off repeatedly like you would be doing when you flash-to-pass, so you would end up burning out your bulbs/ballasts very very quickly doing it.
