I wasn't having a go at your grammar friend, mine is far from perfect. I was just highlighting the legal issue.Why is that an issue? And sorry don't.
Same.Well you will be pulled on your plates before you will HIDs.
Copper pulled me for pressed plates, but had nothing to say about the HIDs. (passed mot too)
Self levelling and washers are needed for a HID lamp, mainly because the discharge is so close to actual sunlight that when, i.e going over speed bumps, the levellers would move the light beam pattern downwards when the car was facing upwards on the speed bump to stop other road users being blinded and visa versa when the car is pointed downwards, washers are also needed as specs of dirt can cause light to refract causing blindness to other road users aswell,
I have 8000k so are more blue then white and have never been stopped, 12,000k is totally illegal as its just too blue and they hardly give any light out, a lot of places don't sell them anymore I don't think either.
HIDs are the far better option, these are my 8000k ones.
No car can leave the factory with Xenons without self levelling and washers - the car you saw would have either had them retrofitted or they would have been halogen projector units rather than xenon - a lot of Vauxhalls are like thisGo for the HID's mate... I was in wales the other day and walked past a car with factory fit Bi xenons and it had no head light washers... I have 6000K HID's in fine far better light and visability.
Dealer had nothin to say about them either.
