    I'll be chancing it. In all honesty I question the quality of inspection on all the inspections I've had to date. Will just see what happens. Will act to change any issues within the chnage date period so I shouldn't see myself out of pocket any.

    Technically speaking aftermarket HIDs are already illegal. They will simply be an MOT failure in future.

    Many will probably leave them in until told otherwise

    for cars fitted with headlamp wash + self-levelling there'll be no issue anyway.
    even self-levelling suspension should be fine, according to the dft website "Once fitted to the vehicle it must have headlamp cleaning and self-levelling (which can be for the headlamp or can be in the vehicle suspension - some expensive estate cars have "self-levelling suspension" and that is adequate). Also the dipped beam must stay on with the main beam."

    could just remove the bulbs for the test...
