You know sometimes I just want to walk up to Ford HQ and punch whoever was responsible for dropping the HIDs and LED tails right in their pencil pushing faces! Those are the final touches on a product they've teased in nearly every press material for months before release, only to make them rediculously unavailable to all but europeans. I mean would the Mona Lisa be the same if Leonardo just decided to stop painting before finishing the eyes?

And look what it has reduced people who want to complete their cars to? Hit or miss plug-in play kits with fault codes, sticking headlamps in an oven and cracking them open for retrofits, and contacting shady Chinese parts dealers.

Seriously WTF?!? Ford:

I believe they sell in bulk.... So orders would have to be in the 100s or even 1000s

As the message I got from them says they are a wholesale seller. I would think it would be hard to get 100 plus buyers to get together and make a purchase.

Alibaba link above clearly says minimum order 20 pieces.

Rather high for a group buy for the forum, but perhaps not if you wanted to set up a business on E-bay ...

That would be great. I just read the quantities of 100 to 1000 but it may have been another item. I am sure you will make a lot of members happy and possibly get quite a few sales.

Sad to say.... but between Ford's current prices for the OEM set and the chinese not wanting to sell individual sets... it's looking more and more like "cracking them open for retrofits" for me... :\

I'm equally appalled no one has started retrofitting and selling on their own.

I'm ordering these for the other car, and at that price why wouldn't I invest in a HID safe projector assembly... http://www.importshark.com/store/det...?image_id=1491

I bet plenty of people are just waiting to do it but 4k for a OEM is stupid.

The ones I linked happen to be OEM...just not the NA versions because North America always gets cheapened one way or another.

I'm thinking it's probably because the car is still "new" on the market and we'll start seeing things around 2013... and by the time Ford changes the body style; there will be a million Projector/Halo/LED headlights for the "2012-2013" Focus on Ebay , we've seen it happen time and over...

Here's a good example, we picked up a 2013 Hyundai Elantra for my wife about a month ago... since that "new" body style actually began in 2011, they already started making Projector/LED Headlamps for them... for a LOT less than $4000 a pair..... take the below examples:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/PROJECTOR-CC...f1efd7&vxp=mtr

Even good old Sentra/200SX get the love!!! (LOL)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1995-1999-NI...&forceRpt=true

Personally, I've been thinking about snatching that Morimoto H1 kit and retrofit it into my current housings; but I also don't wanna find out a week later that "Ebay" started selling those factory made ones for $550 -
