Question about Headlights.

I own a 08 LX and I want to change to LED headlights. It seems I'm only able to get a hold of XR5 LED headlights

so I was wondering if the MK2 XR5 Headlights the same as the MK2 LX?

Try posting a link. Is XR5 a brand name?

Have you checked places like Amazon?

OP's is a Euro Focus, the OP is Austrailian..

the Focus XR5 has this front end, and such a nice front end
to make an XR5 work on a LX you would need front bumper, hood fenders and headlight

your LX headlights is similar to the North american 2008's but the Aus version of the LX i believe is a 2 bulb design with turn signals at the side where the fender is, unlike the north Americans which is a single high/lowbeam bulb and our turn signal is plonked where your second bulb sits

That's strange. the XR5 I've seen around town look about the same as my LX.

I actually haven't seen that one before.

the XR5 i'm referencing looks like this:

even more odd because my friend who lives in Australia has the one i pictured.. she doesnt have a pic of her exact car but found me that link...

again remember most of us live in north america.. we dont have designations like that (LX/XR5) so if i give info thats wrong like that then i will accept the mistake and apologize..

your headlights look like our standard ones the only difference is the Australian versions are dual headlight with third signal.. most of ours are single bulb (both high and low in one) with our turn signals positioned where your second bulb array is

whats funny is i would LOVE to get my hands on a set of headlights like on that car in the picture you provided

ive found a few but alot are LED/HID conversion assemblies
also i do have to mention please be careful importing some assemblies ive heard my friends had the vehicle reg refused because parts like some headlights did not conform to Australian vehicle standards

i am finding kits that are hybrids but they are all like UK spec style ones
