No.... The RS already has a good/mean looking front end, unlike those past generations. Don't ruin it with silly lights. Plus the HID's probably put out more lumens than all of those lights on the old cars combined anyway.

You'd be gob-smacked how poorly the stock HID compare to those big old skool halogen lights...let alone the good (mega-buck) modern lights.

Nonetheless, interesting responses.

You mean colour index/reflection or low heat? (I might know bit about driving in snow with, say, 10,000+hrs operating snow groomers in Australia, Europe & North America.)

Fyrlyt make an interesting case.

Could not agree more!! The RS Focus has worse lights than my 1929 model 6 volt Chevrolet. Have spent the last 6 months working around the electronics to solve the problem, now have light bar up and running correctly.

Pete.. check your private email for update.

You are surely kidding are you not? You have obviously NEVER driven your RS at night!

Check out the Rigid Midnight Edition light bars. They would blend in rather well. Expensive however.
