Buy another pair from a junk yard or from eBay.

Yeah, I've been considering that... I guess that would take away the worry of screwing it up...

Now to find time and money...

I have the money, just need to find the time.
I guess that's the down side to making money, no time... lol

If you have the $$$ but no time why not just buy the expensive o.e. parts and save the effort though?

It's too bad no one out there who has either done the retrofit or is good with them hasn't started buying headlights on ebay and the mini H1 kit and selling them...My main worry about the retrofit is opening the headlight and issues since my friend did a retrofit and he has issue after issue... If I could just pay someone on here like 500 and send them my headlights and they retrofit it i'd go for it... Bet they'd make a killing doing it too.

Uhh... are you referring to the $4000 Ford projector lenses?

We said we have money, not that we won the lottery. lol

Putting that kind of money into a Focus sounds kind of dumb to me. It'd be like $1000 Brembos on a Focus. I'd rather just paint my calipers.

I'm surprised no one has started this either!
