U could find the hood and right front fender from either ebay or your local junk yard or if you want good ones i know a website which is www.certifit.com where u can find anything for your car thats exterior. so chekc it out
This could also be because of a burnt out relay for the turn signal thats what was wrong with my dads BMW

They are very similar, I got these,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SLIM-6000K-H...ht_6410wt_1399

These are really good, I have had no problems yet... The only thing that i havent quite figured out is how to adjust them up/down but the customer service is excellent and they gave me a solution that i have not tried yet....

The only reason i got the ones i did, is because they came with an HID kit, if you are not into HID's or Simply don't want to spend the money, then I'm sure the ones you found will suffice.

Just to help you a little more, don't be too hasty to buy, prices do fluctuate and you can save quite a bit by just waiting for the best time to buy...
Also HID Projector headlights are slightly harder to install than Non-Hid Projectors, but are still quite simple so if you are a little techy and willing to play a bit with your focus's headlight wiring harness, they should be easy for you.

Finally if you are having any trouble hooking your Projectors up just reply to this post with any questions and I'll try to help you out.

Best of luck!!!

Thank you so much man. I did go with the ones I posted and they are on their way through the mail. I would have taken your advice and waited for a price drop but I have been having issues with my lights and the passenger side light I have now is broken so I needed them asap. Ill let you know how the install process goes and if I need help.

No problem man, happy to help. For the most part the headlights should be plug and play I can't remember if you had any LEDs on yours but if you do that is usually the most technical part, but still pretty easy.
Good luck!!!!!

any installed pics? i'm contemplating the ddm hid kit, as i have it on my expedition, and had it on my sable. projectors supposedly angle the light better, but i don't want the front of the car to look too ricey. i don't really care for halos, so can that be left unhooked, or do you know of a basic non-led/non-halo projector lamp? thanks.
