Headlights on SVT question

Does anyone have experience with > SPYDERŪ - Black Projector Headlights LED DRL getting installed on their SVT?
http://http://www.carid.com/2002-for...ts-315549.html


I am currently trying to get mine installed and the shop is saying they are too big and don't fit! I have seen pics of other foci with these same lights installed, has anyone else run into this issue, did it require custom work?

I believe their SONAR right? I got some of those but was not able to complete my swap as there is a hinge located next the fender/front bumper. Its a tight spot so I had to abort ... *fail* ....

I dont have that model myself, but i have had other headlights from the same brand. They are not the best fitting. This is the case for most ebay headlights.

Sonar Manufacture's most of those Ebay stuff you see. Some models will have the SONAR logo in the bottom of the lenz inspite of it being "Spyders" brand.

Kinda like the coilovers being manufactured over seas by the same company yet you see Megans, Ksports, Teins ect.. different variations but overall same technology being utilized.

Oh OK that makes sense, thanks for the info I guess these just won't work. The ones I saw installed must have been on a ZX3.

all models 00-04 have the same mounting points, It wouldn't matter. I would send them back to the place you bought them from and say that they are defective (dont fit)

I will, hopefully it was just a defect and I can get ones that fit, I just saw another foci here on FF today with the same lights!

i was thinking about getting these lights, did you ever get them to fit, and where did you find a picture of them on a focus... looked everywhere and cant find a pic of them actually installed?
