Bi-Xenon HID kit for 2008 focus

Does anyone know a good bi-xenon HID kit to buy for a 2008 focus?
I was thinking about the Philips kit on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...60163026969&ss

Let me know what you think and if someone has any suggestion for me..

Thank you

I've got HIDs with the halogen high beam in my 08 right now, but I will be swapping out the bulbs with bi xenons before spring. In my case I already have the ballasts, and just need to change the bulbs. The bulbs I bought come with the harness for the solenoid power input.

The kit you posted the link to, ISN'T a bi xenon in the photos, but maybe they used stock photos? Just be careful and ask questions first.

There are also a few mods that need to be done for the HIDs to work properly and additional mods for bixenons.

I bought a pair of Kensun bi-xenon's for my 2009 and they work great, once you go HID you'll wonder how you ever drove without them

they said you can install them in 15 mins, it took me about 2 hours, so I guess if you just throw them in, ya it will take 15 mins, but if you want them in and hid all the wires and junk, its gonna take a while.

15 mins to put them in, after a location for the ballast is chosen, and the wiring harness all setup... then maybe.

Question.
How did you put them in in like 15mins..

From what I see on my 09 it's a pain in the ass to get to the headlight bulb

You have to take the lens right out. Getting it out takes maybe 2 mins TOPS for me now. I've had to take it out too many times trying stuff. One of the clips broke.

out of legality in some places they should only be used in HID projectors but some halogen reflectors do okay on not blinding oncoming traffic. but i would rather see some kind of retrofit. nothing worse then getting blinded at night. also as far as i know most major OEM hid manufactures don't make hid kits. but i could be wrong

Do you recommend having it done at a professional (i asked and they charge 375$....)
If you can please tell me detail at how to install the bi-xenon kit, and what kind of mod do i need to do..
Thanks alot

I'm still trying to come up with a mod for the bi-xenons because when you put the highs on, the lows go off, and your relay in the harness is probably triggered by the lows like mine, so power to the ballasts would be cut.
Get what I mean?
