So, the consensus seems to be that the SVT fog bulbs are of the type 9145.

Now we need to know what brands/types are available for replacement, and which of those will best mimic the blue/white look of the HIDs?

And what are Raybrigs or Polargs? Never heard of 'em.

Raybrig and Polarg are one of the highest quality bulbs manufactured. They are, of course, Japanese bulbs made with quality pieces and runs off your factory relays so not to melt the wiring but burns and looks equivalent to HID's. Just because Focus is domestic and Japanese, well, is not, don't let that ever be a deciding factor in bulbs. (Most domestic bulbs are actually Korean or Chinese made, the cheap stuff) If you ever watch pro-racing, take a look at some of the sponsors, Raybrig (not so much Polarg) are lower key sponsors because they sponsor maily Japanese Pro-race teams.

Read your SVT owner's manual or take apart the fog light, SVT is 899. IF anyone knows of a conversion for *899 post it please.

My owner's manual is for all of the foci's(zx3, zx5, sedan, wagon). In that manual it tells you the foglamps take the 899 which are for the regular foglamps and NOT the SVT. There is no owner's manual specifically for the SVT except that you get a colored pamphlet(about 6 pages or so) that tells you SPECIFICALLY what the SVT does and stuff like that. I bought my SVT brand new in 2002 so maybe for the 2003 it is different but I don't see why it would be.
