Hi

I'd prefer to sell the bulbs with the lights as it could get damaged if i posted it out (unless you're near west yorkshire?)

both lights are the standard chrome ones as i've fitted the black versions now

hello mate,

so just to understand this, you are selling a pair of headlights and one of the headlights has all the bulbs which are xenons including the ballast and all the other fittings which are standard to the st3?. I would be very interested mate and again hope not being cheeky but could I have a photo of the headlights including the xenon bulbs and fittings please. It would help very much in making my decision. ta

Yes i have a pair of xenon headlights from my 2006 ST2 (standard genuine ford ones)
1 has all the bulbs fitted, the other has had the bulbs removed (transfered to new black lights i bought).
both lights have the ballasts attached
both are excellent condition - no broken fixings, no scratches
I can take some pics tommorow

dude,

thankyou so much for the pictures all the lights have now gone in my headlight
and ford say they won't replace with parts with ones that are not new
ford say it might be a fuse so I will let them investigate then i will buy from you if it's the headlights and replace it with another garage you are an absolute legend and what is your preffered method of payment ta

Where abouts are you based? is your car still under warranty?

When you mention ford wont replace with used parts are you asking them to fit the used headlight?
The headlight takes seconds to take out (remove 1 bolt on top and pull out) so you could just swap the faulty light for mine in a couple of minutes - don't pay ford it's so easy
