    Wink Info on HID's and the law.

    I know for a while now many people have been agonising over the legality of aftermarket HID conversion kits, after searching for some info myself I came across this page from the "Department for Transport" basically the government, I advise anyone with unanswered questions to read this as it may help.

    http://www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/roadsafety/drs/hidheadlamps

    PLEASE READ!!!





    (sincere apologies if previously posted)

    talk about throwing a cat amongst the pidgeons, so every one that has fitted hid kits should by law fit the washer system as per dot guidelines, thats same for xenons too with aftermarket kits then

    Trouble is, if you are involved in a traffic accident with any illegal lights fitted, you could be in a lot of trouble.
