    Default That old HID and MOT issue!

    Basically, just wondering if anyone has had their MOT with HID's fitted since the rule changes came in to action at the start of april? Did you pass? Did you fail?!

    My motor is up for MOT this coming friday 5th May.

    I have at present 6000k 35w.

    I will double check with the garage as to what they think before I set out.

    Worst case its dropping the front bumper and putting the h7's in I bought in the pound shop. That will only take 30 mins tops so not a biggie.

    Will report back with my findings.
