I'm considerring buying this new set of headlights, however the description says- "You will need a facelifted European Focus or our 2002 install kit."

What does this mean? Will it fit my 03? Is this just a simple wiring fix or is it a fitment problem?

Isn't the 2002 or "facelift" European Focus the same as the 2005-2007 US-spec Focus in the front? I can't tell if it's similar or not. Check this auction: 4653504605

Oh, and this Focus ST170 in the auction is awsome I want one.

The bumper looks similar, but it is different. Also, the headlights and hood are the same style as the US Spec 00-04 Focus.

Wouldn't the rear bumper fit the US-spec Focus? I mean don't all of the MKI Foci use the same rear bumper? It would the same to me to buy the Euro bumper and ship it to my house than to buy the SVT bumper from the dealer at employee cost.

Not sure about the rear. I know when putting a euro bumper on a 00-04 Focus you need to pull out the crash foam and do some serious modding to the rebar.

correct. you have to cut off the ends of the rebar to fit the turn signals. The rear just slaps on, also removing the crash foam.

Awsome SuperFlea, that pretty much confirms that the Euro bumper will definately fit my 2005 ZX5. I've been asking people for almost a year with only one person giving me a similar answer. Thanks!

no problem! Hope the info's right, though! lol!


EDIT:Wait, isn't the 05 focus change in the body style? I'm sure about the 00-04 focus' beeing the same but i'm not so sure about the 05-07 models. I know the headlite style changes, well tha whole front end, but i don't know about the bumper. You might wanna check first.
