    Default AFL - Adaptive Forward Lighting instead of standard xenons

    Hello

    Anyone tried such conversion or can ask someone qualified?
    I think it's possible, but nobody is 100% sure

    I would have thought its possible, but very expensive. You would need the wheel angle sensors as well as the rest of the bits that I don't know of!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yep, lot's of different extra parts needed - and I think also a different ECU as well!! Serious $$$$$ to fit them - if it was even possible.

    It would probably be easier and cheaper to buy a car with thiem already fitted than to try and retrofit.

    The lights themselves are rediculously expensive, before any of the ancilary parts like wiring looms, ballasts, bulbs even.

    Get an HID kit instead.

    Except insurance wouldn't cover them as only fully legal if fitted with washers and auto-levelling, so you risk it not paying out in an accident...

    ****** hard to find cars with it fitted as it's not standard on any trim level at all, which is a ******...

    Thats not actually true. All vec c lights are able to have hid's fitted and be legal due to the way they focus the beam

    That doesn't make them legal.. We've done this to death on the forum before, but in a nutshell by the word of the law, theheadlights have to be designed for them (Xenon headlights are different to standard ones) and they must have headlight washers and auto-levelling...

    Now, I can't imagine any copper is goign to pull you over for having them as long as they aren't blinding everyone else on the road, but the crunch for me was the insurance... they'd take any chance they could to not pay out, and it's just inviting them I think...

    My opinion though....
