Just to join in the discussion, could I fit hids in these projector headlights?

I know of some who's done exactly that

Not saying that I'm going to though, I find that they still throw out a nice beam of light from my osram cool blues

As previously stated no retrofit is legal but if you're going to it'd be better the fit HID's to them than yiur standard reflector headlights

I would have thought they'd fit fine, I think the only problem is with some cars the bulbs are too long, have you heard anyone having problems in the past with theirs?

Then yeah they'll be fine, if they have projectors they won't dazzle, or will dazzle just as much as OEM ones. Isn't there a HID headlight unit for the Focus though?

Yup for the ST

But they cost at least twice as much and even then your lucky if you find em that cheap

And they don't have halos like mine do :P

Like I said I was just wondering about putting hids in em. I'm happy with the light output from me osrams for now

Also with the amount of dirt n grime that gets splattered on em daily I dunno how I'd get on without the headlight washers

Well see how much it is to fit them on, might not be all that much from a write-off.

I tend to just give mine a wipe before I go out, along with windows and such.
