    yeah we went though this recently in another thread (where others got very upset about the discussion), but the intentions of vosa/dft in the recent newsletter are clear on this matter.
    It is a problem, the majority of drivers i notice on the road with these things fitted have not done it right (wrong headlights). That's not to say all motorists who use HIDs don't have a clue - for sure a lot of users here have done it correctly, shouldn't even notice a good HID kit when it's done the right way.

    Might all be irrelevant at the end of the day though - particularly as vosa need to meet EU standards eventually. We shall see....
