I was looking at a pair of those to go along with the LED light bar I put behind the bumper. Are these the ones from DiodeDynamics?

If you arent afraid to get your hands dirty, retrofits are the way to go. You have the same round fogs as the ST's from '13, right?

Of course, plug and play LED's are far easier

Thanks. I can tinker with the old pair I took off and replaced.

Only downside is that they look too small in 17". Especially on our MK3's.

Was a busy day yesterday.
  • Ran a can of Mopar Combustion Chamber Cleaner
  • Performed an Oil Change - Motorcraft 5W-20 and FL910S
  • Didn't feel right with how little DCT fluid was used when I replaced it. Less than 1.3ish quarts. So I removed the DCT fill port and nothing came out, so I topped it off.
  • Rotated the tires while I was at it. Going to retorque in 100mi.

Doesn't look like you can get the Ignition Coils from FordParts when putting in your VIN. Thankfully RockAuto has them $2 cheaper. The part number for them is Motorcraft DG562 (DG546) CM5Z-12029-A (K).

Also need to replace a couple "shop loved" lug nuts. Didn't notice it when I got new tires on it Those buggers ain't cheap. $4/lug. CV6Z-1012-C

Other than that, the Focus is running good. Just trying to figure out what's going on with these "micro-slips". Running 70mph in 6th you see a 50-75RPM "slip". However I don't see any of these "slips" in 5th. Just hope the 2-4-6 clutch isn't going.
