    They are indeed illegal if you're installing them in a h/light unit designed for halogen bulbs, and on a car that doesn't have automatic h/light beam height adjustment and a h/light wash function. However, many MOT centres will pass them and have the opinion that as long as the beam pattern and alignment are correct then they don't care whether its a halogen or HID bulb.

    The scattered pattern is more of an issue with the old style, non-projector lenses.
