I bought them to make up for the 7% tinted film on my headlights. I don't go for dime store tuner bullsit. These didn't disappoint. They are brighter and whiter. My only concern is how long they will last. I'll let you know when one blows.

Low beams and fogs still going strong for me. Very surprised at the life so far. I drive home from work using them 5-6 times a week x 52 weeks in a year and numerous other trips at night.

The ZXE should work fine on either.

Different bulb on older Focuses. H11 on 2012-Up, 9003/H4 on 2000-2004 - not sure on other years.

Does anyone have these in an H1 style bulb? I have aftermarket housings that require H1s and was wondering if they are just as white and bright in an H1 style bulb as the other bulbs.
