Turkey is a "drive on right" country correct?

Your cutoff beam for the HID's looks like this with the higher step on the right?

A friend of mine in the UK just ordered a '12 Focus, perhaps he would be willing to help source lights. I told him about the forum.

Sorry that's what I meant, drive on right side of road, not car. Thanks for the pictures. Looks like a pretty decent projector. Is it a clear lens or fresnel with the circular lines molded into the surface? I'm trying to decide whether to get the euro spec headlights or do a retrofit with what's available here in America. I have a bi-xenon retrofit now on another car with the FX-R's which have a clear lens and I love them. I'm just not sure if they will fit in the Focus housing.

Also wondering if that price includes the required ballasts. I'm betting it doesn't and will most likely add a couple hundred dollars to the project.

You may retrofit lens halogen headlights. Xenon and halogen headlight sharing same housing. There is available space for fitting lens. OEM xenon lenses uses DS3 bulb. Balasts are same as Mustangs.

Price including set of balast+bulb+headlight+DRL+DRL controller.

I want those headlights too, but I wouldn't want insurance to walk away when there's an accident all because of a detail like that... but it happens. :(
I'm hoping this is the North American version that will be available once the ST is released. Has the side reflector so all should be legal.

As am I... I'm still not sure why they weren't an option. My 2010 Fusion rental had DRLs (granted not LED), and projector lights. :-\
