Assuming you mean OEM 2012 Focus ones and not something like OEM 1967 Thunderbird ones, yes, it's you. Actually the first one would probably be your fault as well. What sort of "fitment issue" are you having?

They should fit the same as your OEM ones. Just keep trying to adjust them. If that doesn't work and you want to sell them let me know.

Yes, these are OEM. The very edge of the headlight doesnt line up with the bumper. Theres a gap comparing the other original side headlight. Ill keep on trying to do this. Very fraustrating. I wont give up and sell it that soon. haha

Install it then adjust it. Also aren't the mounting tabs attached to the headlight slotted and not just a hole for the screw?

Ive got it all figured out. The seller who sold me these headlights had put round hard plastic covers instead of the original rubber moisture covers where the H11 bulbs go. Because of this the headlights wasnt able to push back in the way supposed to. They are both now mounted perfectly. Also had the chance to install 8k HIDs as well. Looks more agressive!!!

I'm a little confused as well but what I'm getting out of it is that instead of rubber grommets in the bulb slots to keep out moisture, there were plastic caps that kept the headlight from being pushed back as far as it needed to go to sit properly.
