2012 Titanium Headlights

I want to install the black trimmed headlights and fog light bezels from a Titanium model 2012 Focus onto my Sterling Grey SE.

I have the black centered wheels, the door trim is black and I think the black headlights/fog light bezels would work better then the bright ones that are on the SE. I would have ordered a Titanium if it were available with a manual.

Other then cost I wonder if there would be some electronic difference between the models that would prohibit the install. Thank in advance for any help.

You'd probably be the first to do it. I doubt anyone else at this point knows.

I highly doubt there would be any difference. Kinda like how us 08-11 owners generly like the black housing head & tail lights. Should be pug and play.

Checked with my dealer, $ 202 each for the headlights ( I figured they would be costly ) $40 each for the black bezels.

so 500 bucks to convert all the lights to the black trim then? could be worse i guess.

is there anything special you need to do for changing them? or is it remove the old ones and install the new ones?

Don't the euro lights also look the same, plus are HID? Might be worth it for those assuming you can buy them here online vs paying absurd euro taxes. Probably still cost a bit more, but if you're already spending $500+....
