Hi. I'm new to the forum so not sure if I'm posting in the correct place.

I have got a 58plate 5 door 1.6 titanium Ford focus.

I was wondering if I was to replace my bumpers with the St bumpers would it just be a straight swap or is it more complicated than that?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Karl,
The ST bumpers, spoiler and skirts are a straight swap on the focus, however RS rear bumper is wider its the only one isn't a direct swap, if your using a desktop click on my picture to view my profile, you will see 28 links to my various guides on the profile page including fitting the ST pod to the dash with aftermarket ford racing gauges.

Collected a beautiful set of Trueno tail lights and pre-facelift genuine AE101 side skirts from the Raving days of 1995 yo! Later released as an optional upgrade on the 1996-2000 model AE111
Very happy with todays purchases amounting to 100euro which is also the going rate for the set of BZR tail lights currently on my motor,
Which ill soon be listing on Ebay Win/win end result cost me nothing. :D

#334559 Cree Foglight Bulbs H8

Posted by Lenny on 20 February 2014 - 09:08 PM

Any way to tell if this set of bulbs are legal?

Led will never be legal in headlight or fog light fitting due to the nature of l.e.d light it cant be focused on a fixed point in the distance,
Led spreads equal light in equal directions, thus being great for position marking illumination such as parking lights and day time running lights but not in fogs,
However the cree fitted in fogs wont get you pulled by cops but perhaps by dolly birds and high street honeyz
