In my Ford catalog, they list two options for the headlights on the 2012.

-Aluminum color bezels, CV6Z-13008-A (RH), CV6Z-13008-B (LH).
-Black bezels, CV6Z-13008-C (RH), CV6Z-13008-D (LH).

Those are the differences you're seeing. No HID option.

I didn't think they were HID, but I thought there was a difference between the two trim packages. I actually I found it in my document "Head Lights - Black Surround" Probably have to swap the whole headlight assembly if I wanted that style.

Yeah, the whole headlamp assembly will need to be changed. I edited my original post to include the part numbers for each.

Thanks! I am definitely going to be looking to get a set of those in the near future.

[QUOTE=Jdog913;3612114]Correct me if I am wrong but do the titanium head lights look tinted compared to a SE Trim package. I have this proprietary document from Ford that list all the option codes, show what is compatible with certain colors of the car. Doesn't say anything about HID/LED head light, tint on the titanium edition and models with active grille shutters. The edit date is January 3rd 2011.

I believe what your seeing is the difference between the chrome (S, SE, SEL) and the black (Titanium) headlight eyebrow.

HID's will likely be an option available at a later date/model year. I believe the electric Focus will come with them as standard equipment (since they're more efficient than halogens). I'm hoping they'll be an option on the ST as well.

After having HID's, I really don't want halogens again... ever.

I wouldn't count on this. Remember, they were supposed to originally be available when the car was in design, but we lost them here. Mainly because we complain too much about the price, so they had to find ways to keep costs down. It is possible that it may be an option to come later, but personally I don't think it will come. If they thought it was really cool and a good thing to offer, they would have put it out at the beginning to entice more buyers.

From my experience, auto makers usually tend to cut back on expenses as the model year gets on in age, not add.
