Yes they will

The side skirt design is the same from 2005-2010

For all focus ST and zetecS the same side skirts,

When fitting Genuine Ford skirts don't forget to remove the existing under body panel because the skirts replace these strips using the same screws though,

Quick wipe with petrol will remove the dirt marks ready for skirts,

Hey yep they are the right ones took me ages to figure out how they fitted lol. If I remember rightly that one in pic goes on drivers with the long flat side goes on the outer edge if that makes sense.

the guy at ford showed me how it meant to fit but i have to trim abit of of plastic on the foglight unit to make it fit correctly thats what he told me and yea he also tried to sell me a 2010 focus st 3 door with 30k miles on the clock for £12,000 he did try his best thou.

I doubt the HID's would do any damage, it's usually if the bulb is next to the plastic.

i been told the hid will damge the actual led (drl) as it interfers somehow on the light unit there is a sticker which also says not to use HID

If there is a sticker saying not to use HIDs with the lights then I wouldn't. If any of the LEDs fail you'll have no chance of getting them replaced!

thats true but i also been told by a few people that its fine found a guy on ebay selling the same lights but in black and he said he had HID on and never had problems but i think il take your advice il just put brighter bulbs on. im going to order some badge overlay from dmb but not sure what colout to get. What you think all think will look better my car is panther black so i was thinking either black with orange writing saying ford or black with lime green and if i get black/ green badge il paint the brake calipers green too and orange if i get the black/orange

hids damage drls if in the same lens due to the heat from the hids they can melt or distort the plastic and also dye the pastic as the lens f not designed for hid lights has no uv blocking filters in the lens
