Not only does it look stupid, but it's dangerous. At least a limo tint is not hindering other's ability to drive around them.

And as far as the Focus having great headlights for the purpose of HID's, please look at this guy's thread. It even hurts my eyes to look at the photo, let alone how blinding it would be to see in real life.

One last thing. If this is meant to be a "Info Only No Argu"e"ing" thread, maybe it should be locked and stickied. I thought the purpose of forums was so that people could share their opinions.

Anyway, you are the moderator so hopefully this post does not get me banned. Lol.

I found these pics of a Titanium with the Focus Electric headlights on it. IMO this is the way HID's should be done on a Focus. And also the way I plan on doing it. (either ST or Electric healdights/taillight swap).



Hi, the front and rear light are exactly the same as mine...

Has anybody tried these HID (bulb out) Canceller's? Someone posted this link a while back just wanted to see if anybody had these. Might order them and give them a try.

Forgive me for my lack of HID knowledge, but I have a question/request.

Can anybody tell me or show me what the bulb/headlight assembly looks like with HID's during the day or with the lights OFF? I'm running some Nokya H9's currently & my high/low beam bulbs are blue in color (unlit), therefore the color blue is reflected around my headlight assembly & I hate the look.

Thanks
