Carbon headlights


no I dont mean facelift bumbers etc. Ford started putting sony gen 2 steroes in the cars from 2007 and also the headlights have carbon effect or black inserts instead of the normal silver/mirrored inserts. this was done on pre facelift cars before they realeased the 2008 facelift.

yes this is what I mean. Dashlights are red instead of green too. I have viewed 3 cars so far, 2 57s 1 07 all three had this update including gen2 stereo. unfortunatley still have not found one that meets my requirements. Now a friend of family says he has one coming in on part ex, on a march 07, so just wondered if anyone knows if this update is on all cars built in 2007. Including late 56 plates.

Thanks all input much appriciated.

I looked at an ST registered March '07 and this had the mixture of dark headlights but the original style Sony silver stereo and green interior dashboard lighting. With the stereos, having played with both, the later style one seems more user friendly, can't describe it but the buttons just seem to be in the 'right' places!!


Hope the car your seeing turns out to be a cracker!

I'm on a 57 plate and have the Sony 6 Cd head unit and green dash.

Also have the black xenon headlights, so does that put the 07 thing out of the window?
