Considering buying some Osram Nightbreakers for my 2010 ZS and was just wandering if I would need the H7, H4 or H1's and if anyone knows if would actually fit and how difficult as I am a bit of a novice haha Thanks for any help!

if you have a look at the top of the Focus section, theres a pinned thread with the bulb types. That should confirm it, alternatively if you go to autobulbsdirect.com, you can put your number plate in, and that will confirm the correct fitment :) As its the MK 2.5 I believe its the H7's for side and H1 for main, and H11 for fog, but double check that, as its entirely from memory and I had a very bad nights sleep last night, so accuracy is lacking :P

Not the price osram charge for the T10 parking bulbs its not worth your while mate,
Get some can-bus 5smd T10 led for the parking bulbs and rear reg plate illumination 4 bulbs overall

For a more perfect match to the cree parking bulbs you may like to fit some "osram cool blue " in the H7 fitment.
But keep with osram night breaker on the H1 fitment

You wont need canbus bulbs in the numberplate lights but you will in the front side lights. The LED's are whiter than the Osrams in daylight but the darker it gets the whiter the Osrams look.
