    Default The One Show , H.I.D Legalaty

    any one watch the one show tonight on bbc1, it featured the legalaty of after market xenons , plus the problems they cause http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...ow_20_04_2011/

    it should be running shortly according to i player, however there could be other means of watching it now , it is the first topic discussed.

    it states that all after market need washers and self levelling, or your breaking the law , dont think its gonna be long before its an outright MOT fail.

    As long as you fit them to the correct style headlights, like the Vec_c(elliptical lens) I really cant see the problem with after market Xenon's. I have had mine now for at least 6 months now and have not been flashed once. Considering the amount of badly adjusted normal headlights ive seen on the road, its not Xenon's causing the problem. Before I fitted my auto dimming rear view mirror I was dazzled from behind by a 60 plate Audi A4 running OE Xenon's.................
