I can buy the lights, but nobody's confirmed that they'd be a direct swap. If you want to be a guinea pig let me know and I'll price them, shipping would be cheap since I'm US military and can use the USPS on base.

Moved this from my sedan spoiler thread, it got a little sidetracked. Anyway, here's your answer... if anyone wants to test this out, he said he's got cheap shipping options on base, let's get the ball rolling so I can have some USDM Titanium lights from one of you!

I'd consider it if I knew it was identical wiring with not a lot of effort involved. (Not likely if you ask me)

Hi, I know that the ballast is part of the headlamps but it might not be just the wiring either as the ecm might need to be reprogrammed as well, if it is possible on non-hid lights. I'm about to collected a Foci in the next couple of weeks, with HID's, and I'm willing to post up pics of my wiring if it helps in anyway.

Perhaps someone overseas from us will be kind of enough to take pics of all angles and the electric harness plug? And we should do same here in the states? If we had our car I would!

Well guys just post up what you find! Maybe we can get this stickied so that we have a definitive Euro projector thread?

Don't feel bad, many American's have a tough time with a British accent. [facepalm] Not me though, I worship at the Church of Clarkson. Just curious, is your user name a reference to the "Friendface" episode of The IT Crowd? I think that one and the one with Moss on Countdown are my two favorites.

I would appreciate the pics when you get your car. I'd like to do the conversion if it isn't insanely complicated and expensive. It may end up being easier for us to wait until the Focus ST is released in the US. Patience sucks though.

Hi, I thought the IT Crowd was so funny, as a IT technician myself, but no, my name originates from well before then. It was a a nickname a american lady gave to me from my AOL screen name of chriscuk.
I will post up any photos of the HID's you guys need to help you, but forgive me if I have to 'indulge' in my car when it arrives in a couple of weeks or so time...

Sounds good! I'm in support too, and even after lots of years it shocks me how often turning it off and on again actually works, and even more so that nobody thinks to try it.

You all may not have to wait much longer...when the electric focus comes out it is supposed to have the projectors and HID's. At least that is what I read on another site.

Can't wait for anything to be found out. The sooner I can get a set of Titanium lights the happier I will be! lol

This thread is pretty stupid. OP, just go to a euro parts side and order the damn headlamps. So far the title of this thread is absolutely misleading.
