Does anyone have any experience with a HID conversion kit
for 2005 Focus ST? I am looking into it.

You cant just put an HID kit on your car. Your headlights, as well with all stock foci, are reflectors. If you put an HID bulb in there without a projector lens there will be nothing coming out but glare. Use the search for this topic, there has been many many previous threads.

aright we aren't gettin into this again...there are several VERY LARGE threads with information and hating on this subject so use the search function

this is a highly illegal and dangerous modification, the headlight housings are not meant for the amount of lumens the HIDs will put out, producing glare. Arguing aside this is ur choice, and ur problem..


search the issue, requesting a Mod to close this before it gets crazy again

and just for clarification...there are many housings that are made to house HID beams out there in the market(without projectors), Mercedes, Lexus, BMW all make some...but those are specially made to withstand the amount lumens...my ex girlfriend's Lexus IS300 had em....but yes most of them are Projector-style because of the light dispersion and control
