Moved: Headlight questions

Hello. I need to change my front headlights. I was wondering if anyone can recommend a brand. I don't want to buy a set and have them be under power or they don't fit right. Need a set that lights up the night and looks good. Can anyone recommend a brand. Thanks

Are you looking for the OEM look or, an aftermarket look?

I can't understand why anyone would pay $530 for NON-HID projectors on a twelve year old Focus, but that's just me.

If you just need replacements and don't want HIDs, just get OEM stuff. They work well enough.

Ebay non-hid SVT knock off work fine for my focus, they even came with a hid kit lol. I can't bring my self to spend a lot of money on headlights when just a little fender bender could take them out. Those Dyna beams though are very high quality but I personally don't like the way they look, I like the Mach/ST170's much better.

Well I know the Dynabeams are of VERY high quality, I just don't like the way they look. I've seen some and heard about some of the horrible fitment that some of the aftermarket ones have. I ain't going to lie my SVT knock offs sit a little higher than the stock one and it makes closing the hood a little hard, but they look alright lol
