Black Headlights

Hi, I'm looking at buying a Focus ST. One question I currently have is about the headlights.....why are some ST's fitted with standard Xenon lights and some with tinted Xenon lights. Why is this? Were they an option? I have seen ST2s fitted with the tinted versions after originally thinking it was an ST3 item.

Anyone shed any light?

It depends what model year they are.

Mine's an 07 & got smoked headlights. I think they still had the clear lights up to a 56 plate.
All i can say is I prefur the black lights!
they slighty facelifted 07 onwards with the black headlights and other subtle changed like the red lighting inside on the door switches and mileometer and stuff and i think the sony stereos come in on 07's aswell..

thers prob a couple more changes but as im a 56 owner i dont know!
Yes, mine was an August 07 reg, called 2007.5 model year.

Black headlights, red dash illumination etc. Also the bigger intercooler came in late in the 56 plate
's. Also driveshaft revisions too.

Mine dosent have the black headlights as its a 56 plate.


Question - are the headlights easy to "take apart" to spray black yourself??

Did my old ST200 ones myself just wondering whether it could be done on the Asbo.

Simple answer is no it's not possible.

Some have muted the idea of baking the headlamp in the oven at 200 degress (and maybe serving it with some nice potatoes, who knows?) but I don't know of any successfull attempt to turn silver headlamps in to black ones, sorry.
