They look like the Ti black lights to me.

Yup, in the standard package. Choose the full loaded version with the HID headlights and you'll see the difference :)

Hey all I tried the links to the HID lights and they use to work. Now I get and error on loading the page. Did anyone write down the part numbers?

LOL, those prices are ridiculous! The Xenon projectors on my BMW are literally half that.

I haven't read this whole thread, but one thing to consider if no one has mentioned it is that these headlights likely won't be "plug and play" anyway. You'll probably need a control module of some sort, as well as sensors throughout the car. My BMW uses the steering angle sensor as well as several leveling sensors throughout the suspension to aim the beam properly. It may be impossible to do the conversion without dealer support (if coding is involved) which I suspect would not be forthcoming.

One more things is that these prices might come down when the HID's are actually available on a US-spec car. Did those lights carry a Euro part number or something?

Nope, they are listed as US-spec Electric Focus parts.
You can find the LED tailights right there too.

Ah, I forgot about the Focus Electric. Thanks for pointing that out. In that case, that really is a crazy price - almost $4k for two headlight assemblies?
