Frankly, I'm not a fan of the tail lights since it's just a couple of incandescent lights. It looks like the tail lights on the RS are identical to those on other Foci. Anyone know of any particularly good aftermarket tail lights for the Focus?

Most info I saw has said it's at least partially led. Perhaps it's just the running light part that is led and the rest are incandescent.

I thought the cars across the pond were getting LED tail lights. Should be possible to order those, but I bet it wont be cheap.

Agreed I dont like the look of incandescent lights either.

Might want to check out this thread from our sister site Ford Focus ST Forum and do a bit more searching there. Some of them actually look pretty damn good which I find surprising as I usually don't like the aftermarket lights look. Then i guess the aftermarket has come a long ways from the days of the old chromed out monstrosities that people would put on their cars in the early 2000's.

Yeah, I'm planning on putting some vinyl over the non-functional point towards the back doors.

I have these on my ST. I haven't seen a version for '15+ that would fit the RS though.

Spec-D 2012-14 LED Lamps

We need to get Spec-D to do these for the new Foci

The running lights at the bottom look somewhat Audi A4-esque though considerably smaller. I wonder whether Spec-D or Spyder have any plans for a newer version of aftermarket tail lights for the Focus. Has anyone heard?
I bet they will. Probably will be a while though.

The aftermarket tail lights for the ST that are currently available don't really appeal to me.

These are the Spyder tail lights I currently have on my BRZ:

They're not perfect (during the day, the LED strip looks like a glowstick), but at night, they look pretty nice.

Hopefully, Spec-D or Spyder will create a new set of LED tail lights for the Focus this year that are better looking.

I live in Florida and about 80% of traffic stops by police are decided by Profiling the type of car and its occupants. Tail lights are a big give away so a dim stock incadecent is the only way to fly down here in Bizzaro World-Florida.

I am considering the Mars Performance "Smoke Red 3D Stripe LED Tail Lights Ford Focus 12-15 LW Hatch Back 3Dr 5Dr"

Looks nice tbh. Might fit a SB FoRS pretty good.

I was looking for a GT86 and that would be the first thing I wouldve changed, for the same lights.

There has been a lot of people thinking the tail lamps are or are not LED ....pulled up my car in ETIS today and saw:

"Tail lamps - LED Rear"

This was a separate line from the third brake light.
