They don't even use the correct halogen bulbs for the Focus, H7 instead of H11, etc, also they don't have the amber reflectors.

They look like junk and aren't even set up for the HID bulbs and ballasts out of the box.

These don't really look that bad. Aside from them being sold by an eastern Asian company, they look like good quality. If it were me , I would ask more questions and details about it. About the h7 bulb, that's what we use in Europe. The h7 is brighter than the h11. I have the h7 in my housing. Also, the clear reflector on the side is what is widely used in Europe as well. I also think that's a glass bulb housing, so HID could be an option.

We use the H7 bulbs here in the states. My 2013 ST3 has H7 bulbs in it for its high beams. The H11 bulbs are the fog light bulbs. I know since I changed them all for the Sylvaina ZXE bulbs about a week ago.

I thought. The highs were H-1 bulbs? At least they are on mine

Per the 2013 Ford Focus Owner's guide there are no H7 bulbs listed:

Quote:
BULB SPECIFICATION CHART
Replacement bulbs are specified in the chart below. Headlamp bulbs
must be marked with an authorized “D.O.T.” for North America to ensure
lamp performance, light brightness and pattern and safe visibility. The
correct bulbs will not damage the lamp assembly or void the lamp
assembly warranty and will provide quality bulb burn time.
Function Trade number
Headlamp high beam H1LL
Headlamp low beam (halogen) H11LL
Headlamp low beam (HID) D8S
Turn lamp (front) W21W
Park/Side marker lamp (front) 168NA

* License plate lamp LED
* High-mount brake lamp LED
* To replace these lamps - see your authorized dealer.

From page 267 of the first edition of the 2013 Focus owners guide.

As compared to the 2012 guide:

From the 5th edition of the 2012 Owners guide pg 127.

High beams should be H1 bulbs, not H7. So either someone put the wrong bulbs in the car, or there is something wrong with the manual.

I have a 2013 Focus ST ST3 with the HID light assemblies. These are different from the normal light assemblies. If you have seen a H7 bulb, there is no way you could ever switch it from a H1. I guess I did not explicitly state that I had a ST3 with HID headlights. I just was stating for Locitist to know that Focus's do in fact have the H7 bulbs installed in the high beams on the ST3's. Or at least my 2013 ST3 does. Maybe it has different lights assemblies than other ST3's but I do drought that. Maybe they do it so your high beams look brighter than the HID low beams?

That book has incomplete information in it. It also does not state the "H16-5202" bulbs that are also in my car that are for the illumination when you make a turn. They act like the Lincoln's side lights that light up when you make a turn. If there is another ST3 owner that has changed his High Beam bulbs, would you please chime in and help me out with this.

Hey 20Focus13 - That's good to know that the new ST HID headlights use H7 bulbs for the High Beams (those must be super bright!)... and I think they use the new D3S bulbs/ballasts for the Low Beams correct?
I don't think those Ebay ones are bad, I'm just not a big fan of HALO and LED brow... but they do come with the Projector, which is ALL I'd like to have!

I also spotted this set, a bit different, but still has more than I'd like to get...
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Super-CCFL-L...c57fbf&vxp=mtr

The good news is, if these are starting to show on the Chinese market, it won't be long before they make their way to the Golden Coast of California! I guess we'll have to wait and see how many varieties will be manufactured and sold here! :)

You have made your point. The upgraded assemblies have better lighting output. I knew that the standard assemblies would not use h7 bulbs. The bulbs used in my housing are h7 low beam and hb3 high beams.
