Hi guys i am looking for a set of projector lights for my focus 2.5 to use with halogen bulbs (recommendations accepted lol) i have found these on ebay would they be suitable or do i have to go down the whole xenon route? Its a titanium i have with a 10pin headlight connector with wires missing in puns 9 and 10. Any help would be appreciated.

I'd have to say those look like Xenon lamps to me?

 

If so I'm wondering how they'd look on my ST instead of the ones I've got with black vinyl brows to tone the silver down....

The listing doesn't actually say anything about the type of lighting. It is indeed a projector type lens but bulb fitment is unknown there can't tell if it's for halogen or xenon.

There is alot more to retrofitting xenon than just having 10 pins.

Troy xenon uses projector type lens only but halogen can also use it

Recall my Puma had projector lights and had a bike with them too, though couldn't say they were ever an improvement on std halogen lamps.

 

Not noticed before if the Focus has a spec of headlamps with projector lamps, I was always under the impression that you either had the standard halogens or Xenons?

AFS (adaptive front light system) headlamps on the focus are halogen only. These also use the 10 pin connector.

AFS lamps look identical to to xenons

No washers needed but you'll need the steering angle sensor for it to work and also the HID control module also know as the AFS module. This will require a new dashboard loom so far no car has the dash loom for this module that I know of on this forum

Great :) did you wire in the steering angle sensor as mentioned above or do the light you bought not need it?

 

Looking forward to seeing the pics.

They look good. Do the DRLs illuminate with the ignition or do you need the side lights on. Do they dim with the headlights?  Cheers.
