I thought about ordering from these guys, and also inquired into being a dealer in the US, and they were gonna try to sell them to me for the EU price, and tell me to mark them up to make $ on them. HMMMMMM anyone can get on their site and order for a lot less then the EU price. WTF?

They are direct plug and play. I have compared and matched up the euro plug against the US plug and they are the same.

locutist,

So have you actually plugged in a set of these lights to a US Focus and verified this claim?

merruse is a member on here from Turkey that has done the swap. He said it was plug and play in his euro focus. Hopefully it would be the same for us North American owners.

Is that http://www.european-parts.net reliable. They show an st front conversion for considerably less. Shipping would probably be horrible. It would be good to know if the headlights fit for sure

I used them for the LED taillights. No problems at all. They came well packaged. I think from order to delivery it was around 2 weeks.

I have actually. There are some features that may not work, such as manual headlight leveling because the US switch is not wired for it. But the basic headlight functions do work just fine. If you want to use the leveling function, you will also need a euro headlight switch and wire to run to the headlights as the US harness was not wired for this function.
