    Default HID's - Police Taking Action

    I cant remember seeing anything recently about this being posted, so aplogies if it has.

    http://www.astraownersnetwork.co.uk/...d.php?t=122493

    It would appear that the first steps to clamp down on aftermarket HID's is starting to take effect.

    We've been told it's coming enough times, looks like it's finally an issue.

    First time i've heard of this actually happening. Im not sure about another member theres comment about "Put them behind reflectors" though, thats probably how the OP was stopped in the first place, its like being in front of someone with their high beam on when they are fitted to bloomin reflector headlights!!!! Elliptical headlight and washers heads on the bumper and I doubt any copper would look twice.

    Hi.
    You can bet your life that Vx & competitors only put self leveling zenons in because they had to (.......memories of my old '51 Vectra 2.2 CDX )
    no reason to go to that expense if they could avoid it.

    It's a safety issue, which is why I've never fitted them

    Plenty people here have access to opcom, even more on VVOC from what ive seen taffy, its very simple to activate them too bud. Good old Beer tokens works for most

    About time too, it's bad enough with factory fitted kit working as it should.
    Some aftermarket lights are way too bright imo ......................................

    Yes, its pretty much the same as the preface one except the washer jet units are quite a bit bigger and different, and theres a bigger hole to cut out on the bumper.
