They will fit you just need to make a new wiring harness for them, contact Trevor at fordpartsuk.com or visit the for sale section to snag a pair already in the states or canada. Be prepared to pay a dime for them either route you go.

Yeah they're not cheap...even used. I used to have a set. They are by far the best looking headlights for the Focus, but I found some MACHs for sale, bought them, and sold the ST170s....and regret it all the time :(

This is a how-to on installing MACH HID headlights, but the process is identical for ST170s :thumbup:

Thanks to Silfox, he posted a diagram specific for the ST170s. I just included it as part of the HID how-to:

I have never understood why people think there are differences between the ST170 wiring configuration and that of the MACHs...many people, myself included, have switched between the two and not switched any wiring and they worked as they should :dunno: I originally had ST170s then swapped them for MACHs, and all I had to do was add that extra ground...

But then again, I didn't completely rely on the how-to when I wired mine up. I used it to know which wires were which and to get an idea of where it should be spliced to, but I tried it out before permanently attaching anything...and in the end trial and error was my friend :lol:
