Hi ash these would not be legal I had already checked this a year or so ago with the police and is classed as a distraction to other drivers. Inside the car eg. The footwells it is legal as long as it doesn't illuminate all the car but not on the outside or under the car.

when purchasing ensure the bulbs are Can-Bus error free as regular led bulbs will not work with the focus as it has a can-bus system B)
