We have devoted this portion of our website to doing just that. Here you'll find information on different automotive lighting technologies, how they work and common misconceptions you'll see while shopping for your vehicle. We hope you enjoy learning all about lighting!

RS MK3 Videos...

 

Looks great, is there a UK Distributor or do we order straight from the states? How easy is it to install a resistor kit to stop "hyperblinking" on LED Turn signal lights, and this might be a stupid question but I'm never sure about US light configurations. Are the tail lights also brake lights?

We have quite a few authorized dealers overseas (still updating the map), but here's a link to our dealer locator tool: 

 

http://www.diodedyna...p/find-dealers/

 

Steeda UK and Clive Sutton LTD are two of our newest dealers in Europe.

 

I believe the tail lights are configured the same on both the EU and US-spec RS models, but if someone is willing to send us a few pictures it would help us confirm: [email protected]

 

Unfortunately, we don't have access to EU-spec vehicles, otherwise we'd have that information more readily available.

 

Thanks!

Have you tried contacting the Ford Dearborn product development team, they will more than likely have EU spec vehicles there.

You could also drop an email to [email protected] and ask that the email is forwarded on to the European homologation team for C346 Focus (electrical & lighting) there will be someone there that 2ill be able to answer any technical questions you have.

I once had a discussion with one of that team about aftermarket LED lights etc. Relating to the C307 Mk2 Focus RS.
I won't divulge what was said.
