+1 ive purchased a Focus overlay from DMB for the rear that looks identical to the stock ford one but actually says focus lol cost me 7 pounds including postage, and ive fitted the badge brake light too so i think the two modifications go nicely togeather.

I think they look smart Lenny. On ebay I saw LED tail/stop lights to replace the halogen ones. You done that, is it easy removing the rear light cluster?

Hi mate,
thanks for the kind comments,
i have changed the indicator bulbs to the silvatec type ones but i have not changed the tail light bulbs,
i would like to change them to an led version but their are a few problems that need to be over come,
the led bulbs advertised on ebay say they are stop/tail which means they will work in both fitments but not as a stop and a tail in the one unit,
the second issue is:
leds operate at a lower voltage compared to the halogen so it would be very difficult to manufacture a single led bulb that emites a noticable difference in light between the brake and the tail light, and without the need to fit resistors to the tail light loom,
i think it is early days for this type of fitment to be plug and play like the cree q5 reverse bulbs are but they may be available before the end of the year,

as for the rear cluster, it is very easy to remove just two screws on the inner side towards the boot interior,
then pull the unit out towards the rear of the car,

I am pretty sure they are just doing a middle man job... there is a site out there you can make the badge on yourself (I think I made a "Lenny ST" badge for lenny one day for the crack of it. I cant find the site, or the page on this forum with it, but I recall that you could get them for less than £8...

I changed my rear lights clusters for the LED ones that were standard on the newer ST and RS.

I think they make such a huge difference to the look of the car. I took a few more photos so you can see below:

Stoney, that might well be the site! perhaps they have suffered inflation since I last visited!

As for the bulbs, agreed entirely!
