I have 59 plate facelift Focus Zetec (Mk 2.5)

 

My passenger side headlight bulb has blown a few days ago and just wanted to know the best replacements to get that have a blue tint like xenon blubs.

 

I read on here that the 'best' ones to get are the 'osram cool blue intenses'

 

Which ones do I need? H1, H4 or H7? I do like the blue tint but I just don't know which ones I need to get.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi

 

Dipped Beams are H7

High Beams H1

Fogs H11

 

I have Philips diamond vision in my focus which are white with an ever so slight blue tinge, but heard good things about the cool blue intense.

 

Good Luck

Here you go mate, bear in mind they are not technically street legal being 5000k, but as long as your headlights are aligned properly so you don't dazzle people, it would take an incredibly bored copper to pull you over for them. There are pictures in my build thread of them fitted.

Cheers mate. I like your blue interior, I was going to do the same thing with mine but I checked to see if I had the footwell wiring but it looks like I don't have any :/

 

I might go for the Phillips bulbs, if not, will these fit? http://www.ebay.co.u...=item35ce65a04e

No definitely H11 for the facelift focus 2008-2011
H8 look much the same as H11 but they don't plug in to the opposites loom,
Halfords sold me H11 instead of H8 on my old 2006 Nissan Almera N16 :rolleyes:

Bought some cree h11's for my fogs fit perfect. Maybe h8 for mk2 no idea :)

+1
Manual says to remove the fog light housing and remove the fog light,
But you don't need to do this; much easier to remove the headlight unit and reach down inside

I received mine within about 2 days. Be careful though, as mine were left on my doorstep all day. They didn't even attempt to knock on my door or ring the bell.
