Nevermind I got frustrated with it and shaved the black tab down some then forced it in. Everything looks good and lights up correctly so I'm pleased :)

Spec-D

http://www.amazon.com/Ford-Focus-Smo...headlights+led

I bought these. They are a gloss black housing with white led angel eyes (not that blue crap). So far I love them, just looking to upgrade the standard h1s to whiter, brighter ones (most likely silverstar zxe). I've got a picture on the amazon product site and several on here.

I went ahead and bought one of the black housing spec d units

Shine much brighter already!

and SBK86, i also had issues making some of the mounts line up. What was more annoying to me was not the black tab at the top but the clear spacer tab at the bottom. It doesnt allow one of the mounting points to fully sit on the metal, even thought the headlight is fully seated. I just shoved the plastic rivet in there and it's holding fine for now.

However, one of my halo rings is already out..

Pretty sure one of my wires just came loose, but i'm going to be rather upset if it's a faulty unit.

Silverstar zXe's are great, have them for fogs to go with my Silverstar Ultra headlights.

If anyone wants really white bulbs with like 5% blue, try Philips Crystal Vision Ultra bulbs. I have them in my Focus, van, sons Ranger and in my old Superduty and Excursion. It will be the only headlight bulb I ever buy again. I tried the ZXE's, not near as good as the Philips Crystal Vision Ultras. JMO. Pairs can be had on ebay for about $18-$20 shipped.

I recommend you look into either of these Hellas: http://forums.focaljet.com/new-produ...light-buy.html
They are top quality, and the HIDs have excellent brightness and light pattern. I have a set on my SVT.
