Yes. Do a search. They are $1500 a headlight. $3000 for the set.

Its been mentioned before that you need the bulbs, ballasts, and the auto leveling controls, which you would have found if you searched.

Did you research before spending that kind of money on the housings?

I went with the 55 watt ballasts and I could not be happier with them.

Old thread, I know. After reading I plan on putting 35w 3000k HIDs in the foglights, I see a lot of different threads talking about resistors and other wires, I don't need this correct? and where did you guys mount the ballast? thanks!

It's probably easiest to just buy a quality kit made specifically for the MK3 Focus.

I mounted my ballasts on some plastic supports inside the engine bay. I've seen some folks mount them directly to the headlights, not sure if there's enough room for that.

I was just gonna go off DDMtuning like I have in the past, but I've never had a car this new and I'm unsure if I should get a relay or resistor, etc. On the ordering page it says I can add on an error eliminator or adapter cables for like $8-15. Wondering if that's the same as a relay.

I doubt it, and I've heard lots of poor reviews regarding DDM. Definitely get a relay/harness. I don't think resistors are required for fogs.
