I am liking the new bulbs.

Kind of hard to start taking headlights apart though when the car is almost always the only one I have at home. I'm sure some day I'll finally give in and buy a set of OEM.

Those projector reverse lights look pretty cool. While they appear brighter against the garage, do they appear to work better as viewed from the vehicle? If so, I may have to look into getting a set...

With my windows tinted I find the stock r lights could use a boost.

That's exactly what I do everytime something doesn't fit...make it fit

Actually, I haven't even tested them outside. The Focus hasn't left the garage in a few days. However, with the garage lights all off, these lit up the whole place. I will be interested in giving them a 'proper' test next time the Fofo is out at night.

Focus is almost backed into twice....

and suffers a couple of black eyes. It's been an interesting day. The black eyes are the good news though.

Yesterday while at work I asked my friend in parts if the price on Titanium headlights had changed at all. I figured that since they're now going to be more common with SEs gaining the 'Black Pack' option, perhaps there was a chance the price had changed? Long shot but worth a try.

It was a good thing I asked. To cut the story short I was able to order a set of new OEM Titanium lights for less than the $600 I was previously quoted, so I gave the go ahead and picked them up this morning.

At home, unwrapped and almost ready to go in. They came with all bulbs already in place, which was nice.



One last shot with the original lights:



I removed the chrome lights, swapped the stealth marker bulbs over to the Ti pieces, and then put them in place.



I have wanted these lights since I bought the Focus, and now I finally have them. On to the pictures!

It's amazing how headlights can change the whole look of a car. That looks awesome man.
