    Much projector. So shiny. Such Euro. Wow.


    Much more padding than the first shipment, which arrived damaged beyond repair:

    What, no LEDs yet, what have you been doing? :)

    They do look great.

    I'm just creating an excuse for you to take the day in Anaheim for a change :p

    That is not a problem.
    But I don't think you want to wait until the weekend.

    I can wait to the weekend. Weekdays are tough for projects that take more than an hour, and I need to do a proper relay for the DRL strips which could take time.

    Do you have ALL the required parts?

    Ford relay. (same as 1/2 size relay in under hood block)
    Fuse tap. (for micro fuse used in fuse block)
    10 amp fuse.
    3 color 18-22 ga. wire.
    Wire eyelet terminal for ground wire. (goes behind under hood fuse/relay block)
    1/8 heat shrink tube.

    Things I am sure you do already have.

    Soldering iron.
    Small gauge solder.
    Heat source to shrink tubing.

    Of course you can do this without the relay.
    I prefer to isolate the circuits.
    This is your choice.

    Should take only about 30 minutes.

    I can get that by Saturday. Is the relay available at a place like AutoZone? If not, I can go to the dealer if needed.

    I have only found them at the dealer.

    Do want!

    Can I order these lamp assemblies thru Ford here in the US or must I get them over seas?
  13. DirtyBlueshirt

    US Ford Dealers don't have access to EU part numbers. You'll have to order via fordpartsuk.com or a similar source. Make sure you specifically ask them to double-wrap in bubble wrap or you'll have a baaaad tiiime.

    So how much did this cost, including all the relays, plugs, etc.,
  16. DirtyBlueshirt

    The headlights were about £415 per unit, and £66 shipping for both. They're expensive because the projectors have leveling motors (we don't have the switchgear for this). You can also get the projectors without LEDs for less. Bulbs come with the units, so that will save you about $100 on its own.

    Next is the wiring harness. You only need one, which runs about $35 from Tasca. You'll use this to pluck two wire connectors out and add them to your factory harness (for LED + power). Next, you'll need a relay. You can probably get this from Tasca again for less than the $22 I paid at the dealer. Everything else are trivial bits you can get at most well-stocked auto stores like Advance, AutoZone, Pep Boys, or O'Reilly; 18 or 22 gauge wire (red, Black, and a color of your choosing) the fuse jumper was about $5, then wire splicers, zip ties, etc... probably about $15-20 in those bits.

    At the present exchange rate of 1.67 per dollar that is over $1500.00

    SICKHIDS.com can install morimoto HIDS and DRL LED strips for $500.00. I think I'll mod mine like I did on my mustang.

    Wait, £415 isn't right. I paid about $820 all said and done for the lights. Let me find the invoice...

    Sorry, it was £488.44 including shipping. Currently $818 USD. My mistake.

    Would you consider selling me your OEM ST lights?
  20. DirtyBlueshirt

    DirtyBlueshirt Active Member

    They're OEM Titanium lights actually, so they're all chrome. I'm holding onto these in the event I trade in the car. It'll be much easer to sell projectors locally, and whoever gets them eventually will get a good deal :)

    FYI, While there are 2014 headlamps that have the projector lenses without the LED strips, I've been told by Trevor at Fordpartsuk.com that those are only available for RHD vehicles (interesting). So there you go... if you want projectors, you need to get the ones with LEDs as well.
