And i bought these from this seller:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/10p-3mm-Supe...#ht_3608wt_953

to redo the halo led's

I'm also going to replace all of the other leds .. the four leds up top, im going to change to blue as well. and then get a led for the bulb thats above the corner turn signal.

Now question, do you have to change the fuses in the internal engine bay on the high beam, low beam, and drl fuses to a slightly higher amperage fuse to handle the extra lighting that the car wasnt originally designed to handle?

There's very little extra amperage from an LED bulb. As far as the separate high and low beams, you're really just splitting the stock multi-filament single bulb into two mono-filament bulbs so there's no extra amperage there. If you start blowing fuses for some reason, hit me up again and we can do some calculations.

That DRL strip you got looks like the LEDs are placed to throw light straight out. Because of where you want to put the strip, you can only stick it to the top of the bumper or the bottom of the headlight. Both of these placements will not be shining out from the front of the car but either up or down. You need some side-emitting LED strips. Check this one out:

I'm planning to mount it in the grill somewhere facing forward like they showed in their pics on a lower grill... Or just clean the bumper very good and then slap some epoxy on the back of the led strip and press it to the front of the bumper and then drill a tiny hole to feed the wires or try to feed them towards the grill turn signal harness behind/under the grill.

I also have a complete euro grill waiting to be installed along with the headlights.. I'm deleting the upper turn signals, since we got the corner light in the headlight now :)

I don't think slapping a light strip on your bumper is gonna turn out the way you want. With that Twilight Blue hiding it, though, it might come out nice.

Who has two thumbs and is jealous right now?
<<<This guy. I've been trying to find a euro grill for a while in my price range. The cheapest eBay ones are over a hundred shipped.

I got a connection.. My grill was 32.95 shipped from Latvia and I had to buy a ford logo for it from a ford dealer in Germany via a friend in Germany finding me one on eBay.. That logo cost me roughly 50.00 part+ s/h sent via Dhl express paket..) Lemme find the links..want it? :)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2001-2004-FO...ht_2676wt_1260



The Ford Logo, i've Sent an Email to the Ford Dealer in germany astig in They have more.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_1275wt_689


Tr that link, if it doesn't work lemme know.

The grill took about 10-14 days to arrive, the ford logo from Germany,, took only 4 days!!! And it was standard shipping..from Germany to north Dakota! I've lived in Germany 3 1/2 years in high school.. In my own experience the German postal service is way faster than the USPS.. The tracking info on my package show it went to Frankfurt then direct to Denver then up to Bismarck and finally Minot nd! Must have ridden on the Lufthansa flight to Denver from Frankfurt

The grill outta latvia took a bit longer... 2 1/2 weeks max I think.

http://www.ebay.de/itm/FORD-FOCUS-FO...#ht_1275wt_689

It's in German.. But u can log on to ur us eBay name then buy it on here

Putting the logo together on the grill was a pain, want me to take a pic of how my grill looks?
The funny thing was the packing it was wrapped in smelled of vodka lol... :d sry bad joke lol Latvia is near Russia lol.

HA! You've got a connection? My wife is Lithuanian! I was just talking to the family over there yesterday.

I've been looking for the RS Rally version. I want a complete blackout.
