    Default Non genuine parts - Headlights

    Anyone fitted a non genuine headlight to the car, whilst the other one remains as a genuine vauxhall one, and was there a difference in beam image?

    Cheers

    Russ

    There are points on the lighs where you can adjust the aim of the beam, I think you use an allen key to do it!!

    Don't forget the driver side SHOULD be lower, so you don't blind other drivers.

    Both headlights aim should be set at exactly the same height. Im sure any MOT testers we have on here will confirm that.
