    Mine passed two weeks ago with HIDs, I checked with the garage owner beforehand if there'd been any changes to the rules, he said no.

    Mine passed 2 days ago at a Vauxhall main dealer, just like it did last year as well.

    what exactly did it fail on, the HIDs itself, or an allignment or colour problem?

    There are changes taking place for MOT in Jan 2012 for HID's they have to be able to align etc. Not illegal at the moment unless they are not aligned right etc

    So we keep hearing, but has anybody posted an official link yet to verify this, or is it still hearsay?
