I am wondering if anyone has these headlights in their car
Many please do a search, plenty of threads here about them...

IMO, not worth the price...be prepared to be deceived (Chinese aftermarket headlight ebay /alibaba and all , use cheap polycarbonate lenses and bad seals)... stay with OEM and retrofit or do a ST3 light swap.

They have givin me some problems, and they poke out just a little at the top corner, but I still like these a lot. And I'll fix all my problems soon.

I resealed them, washed it yesterday, and the condensation on my passenger side came back again. Appears to be the same as before I opened them..... I need to read up more on condensation and possible causes, cuz it looks like I'm not done yet..... ugh. And they looked so cool too... ah, by spring I'm hoping to have this figured out.
My passenger headlight fogged so I took it apart. Sealed it and fogging returned slightly. Not as bad as it was at first.Then the driver side started doing it too, I sealed every possible nook and crack I could. To no avail. I love they way they look but man were they half assed assembled. For now I just have my stock ones in. Maybe when it warms up I'll put em back in, but it's unacceptable with how much they cost that they have issues with condensation. And they're were only about 4 months in use until the issue's came up when it started getting cooler.

I agree with ElCouz if you want better performing headlights, you either need to do a retrofit or get ST3 lights as these will both be OEM headlights and OEM lenses which dont get condensation, cracked or spiderweb-ed lenses, and fit nice and snug

whats a ST3 light
ST3 is the top Focus ST trim since ST1 and ST2 come with halogen headlight... ST3 is HID projectors.

2012-2014 ST3 headlights



2015+ ST3 headlights



You will need the 2012-2014 ST3 headlight the other one does not fit your car.
