  1. 2008 Titanium X bulb type

    Evening all, My headlights are starting to look a bit dim, so I checked on a couple of parts websites to see what bulbs I needed to buy. One place said I had xenons but another said I had standard bulbs. Without taking the lamp unit out, is there a way to see? I tried looking on Etis for the spec but couldn't see anything. The car is fitted with follow me home headlights and the beam is off white which makes me think it has standard bulbs. Appreciate any responses.
  2. Hello, I have a 2012 Ford Focus Mk3 - Titanum X with factory fitted xenon headlamps (low), Halogen (high), LED DRLs, auto levelling, washers etc. I was hoping if someone could enlighten me, if it is possible to change them to a bi-xenon setup? The process, parts, costs etc. Apologies, if this has been answered already on the forum. Many thanks.
  3. Focus 2015 st3 bulbs

    Hi guys, Hope you can help, I am looking at buying new bulbs for the headlights as one of the, seems yellow and the other white. Anyways I have searched and come up with different bulbs and different headlight units but still not 100% which are suitable for my car. I have the headlights with the led strips also the extra light comes on when you drive around corners. Do I have the hid units or are they just normal units. And thus require std bulbs? Thanks craig.
  4. Hi guys just was flicking through eBay and seen a pair of oem pre facelift st225 bixenon projector headlights in mint nick up for auction and I ended up getting then for 70 quid which is a robery (pic below). My focus is a mk2 pre facelift is just a standard zetec model and doesn't have auto lights or any of that it's just standard. Just wondering will they plug and play and function the same as my old headlights or will I have to to a bit of playing around with wiring, thanks lads
  5. HID HELP

    I Recently just swapped out my headlamps on my 2004 fiesta, they are projectors and have drls, There is a small wire that doesnt connect to anything and the guy said it was only needed for HID's, I was wondering would I need a conversion kit then if i was to install HID's?
  6. Hi all I'm new to this forum sorry if this has already bin covered. I've recently become the owner of focus 2013 2.0 diesel titanium x and really like the motor. But I'm wanting to change my cornering light bulbs and main beam to match up with the 'cool white' look from the drls and xenon headlights Am I right in thinking cornering bulbs are H1 and main beam is H7. I'll be changing indicator bulbs to silvervision too
  7. Hi people, Completely new to this site so thought id ask a question. Ive recently bought a 2015 Ford Focus Zetec S. Im looking to have Xenon lights fitted to the front but struggling to find any decent prices/legit places to get it done. What would be the best option for this model, a new set of Xenon headlights or just add some Xenon bulbs to the existing headlights? Which would look the best? Obv getting just the bulls would be the cheapest. Thanks
  8. Hid Kit Done...

    So my package arrived from the other side of the country, and can highly recommend them if you ever doing the HID kit in SA, they're called violet electronics and they really helped me even by saving me a few bucks. So I took the plunge and bought the 35w H7 (Non-canbus - Fiesta's don't need the canbus) 6000k HID kit from Violet's, everything was as they said just plug and play, the hardest part of the install was removing the overly massive lights and the dredded clip that hold the H7 globe in place, this part has too be modified for it too work on the HID globe, see pic below As can be seen below the only way for the HID globes to work with the old clip is to cut a piece out for the globe with wires to slide in The pic below shows the clip with the original H7 globe in place The other small change that was made was cutting a small hole in the rubber seal for the wires to feed through, mine is about a centimeter in diameter and works perfectly once the gromet plug is in place to seal the hole everything should be waterproof. Before After Left is HID, right is standard, ps. if you can't see the difference have your eyes checked Both HID Hope this helps a bit, remember the HID kits works best with Projector lights Now too change that damn courtasy light, looks all yellow with the HID and the silver visions
  9. 501 Sidelights

    Hi All, I was just looking for some suggestion of what sidelights to get, for a while i've had a few pairs of some LED's that i've got from ebay and different shops, which all seem to be the same type etc. They are bright, and have a slight blue/purple tint to them, but they always seem to flicker every now and then or die or a 1 or 2 of the LED's will die. Just looks awkward. Is there any LED's that you have had that last and are the same with a tint of blue or purple? Or any bulbs that can match the brightness and colour of these? Thanks, Max.
  10. Hid's

  12. Xenon Hid Hit Ford Fiesta Mk7 Titanium

    Hello All. I want to fit xenon - kit to my fiesta. Which ones are suitable? Do i need can bus? Do you have something in your mind to suggest? Thank you a lot for your time Antonis
  13. So I have just fitted some xenon white dipped beam and sidelight bulbs from eBay and don't get me wrong they look bright in the dark but nowhere near that of HIDs. I just want some help to find the BRIGHTEST bulbs that can be a straight swap (and road legal of course) that most new Mercedes and BMWs have or at least something very close to that! The ones I have are bright white but I want something with much more of a blue tint to it and people will think WOW when seeing them! I see lots of people recommending the Philips blue vision ultras but are these even brighter and have a good blue tint to them? All advice welcome! Thanks! :)
  14. just wondering if LED white lights are legal for rear numberplate lights?? i know new top end cars like Audi and mercedes have them but newer cars dont have mot for first few years, so a bit worried bcos on MOT it says it should'nt be a white light at the back?? could anyone tell me or correct me if im wrong thanks.

  19. HI, I RECENTLY CHANGED MY HEADLIGHTS WITH HALFORDS ULTRA BRILLIANCE WHITE XENON BULBS, SO FAR THEY LOOK AMAZING AND ARE PURE WHITE DURING THE NIGHT, HOWEVER MY SIDELIGHTS ON THE FIESTA ARE STILL THE ORIGINAL ONES. I JUST WANTED TO KNOW WHETHER THIS IS LEGAL AS DURING THE NIGHT THE HEADLIGHTS ARE WHITE AND MY SIDELIGHTS ARE THE ORIGINAL WHICH IS SORT OF YELLOWISH? I PLAN ON GETTING THEM CHANGED BUT I WANT REALLY GOOD ONES WHICH ARE MADE STRONG SO THEY DON'T POP WHEN GOING OVER POT HOLES OR SPEED BUMPS? BUT FOR NOW IS THIS LEGAL AND WILL IT PASS ITS MOT? HAVE A LOOK AT THE PICS I POSTED FOR INFO. THANKS, FORD FIESTA MK6 03'

  22. Hid Upgrade??

    I've been doing a few different upgrades and modifications to the car and most recently have been looking at HID kits on the Internet. Just wondering if anyone has any experience of fitting/using a HID upgrade kit and how much I should be looking at paying for one? Oh and its an 08 plate focus Zetec mk2.5
  23. Hi all, a quick question if you could be so kind to help. I have a mk2.5 Focus Zetec S and recently I changed the factory fitted bulbs in the headlamp (side lights, dipped and main beam) to bright white/hint of blue xenon bulbs. The side lights look great as you can see from the photo, as too do the main beams. My concern is with the dipped beam...when the dipped beam is on, it is very noticeable from not too much of a distance away that the driver side lamp is brighter and more "white" than the passenger side. I went back to the shop where I purchased the bulbs from and the fella who worked there said to me that the driver's side beam will inevitably be brighter as the bulb is pointing straight on to help with driver visibility and the passenger side beam is pointing down towards the road to light the road ahead and make it clearer. Now I have no idea whether this is true or not, I am leaning towards that it isn't!...I don't really know what I need to do here, so please if you Focus gurus could shed some light on this...excuse the pun! Any help would be greatly appreciated. 1st photo: side lights only 2nd photo: side lights and full beam 3rd photo: side lights and DIPPED BEAM
  24. Hey all, Just a quick question to see if anyone is aware of this. Did Ford ever make original Bi-Xenon headlamps for the Focus MK2?? Was looking on the internet to see if i can get any after market ones, but don't seem to be spoiled for choice Reason I am looking for them is that am still having an issue with my xenon conversion kit. Installed it there a while ago until recently more and more drivers started flashing their lights at me when driving past!! Then the Police stopped me and told me that I need to have the projector headlamps installed at least, otherwise the light is dispersed and hence blinds the other drivers!! When I went to the Ford dealership, they said they don't supply any headlamps like that. When asked about the ST ones, they said they are 400 quid a set and will have to play around with them to get them fitted!!! Any help would be much appreciated guys :)
  25. Xenon Parts Requirement

    As I have previously shown interested in getting xenon lights fitted in my car. Just a question of what I actually need as I am under the impression I need 1. Oem/facelift focus st headlamps (projector xenon compatible) 2. Xenon bulbs 3. Ballast to power bulbs 4. Leveling module 5. Leveling sensors 6. Headlamp washers 7. Control module for washers Would I be correct in saying I need all the above items to convert from halogen bulbs to proper road legal xenon headlights ?
