You might check car-part.com and it will pull up used ones at nearby junk yards. You don't have to be specific when looking for them, especially if you call somewhere. Just ask for "black taillights for a 08-11 Ford Focus." They will all fit. I'm keeping my chrome ones because my car is silver and I think it will match better, I also don't personally think it is sensible to spend that much money on lights that do nothing different than the stock ones, especially since the front ones are $400+ per pair.

I don't know which sites you have checked, but Rock Auto might have decent prices. You could also check into tinting the lenses with, I think the brand or product is called, Nightshade and I think Plastidip makes a taillight tint. Might even be the same thing.

well those tints would be on the outside, i think the black tailights have the inside tinted. i looked on rockauto and it was 140 for one. i still refuse to pay that. its only 60 for a silver one though, annoyingly enough.

ill check that car part website you suggested

Yeah, I know. I'm just suggesting a cheaper alternative in case you can't get the lights you want.

The smoked lamps were introduced in '09 on the coupes. They were available on SES sedans in '10 and '11.
