    i think its something to do with the dirt distorting the light and not pointing them in the right place.

    Kev, yours is pre-facelift isn't it? I'm assuming you ditched the Xenons for facelift standard headlights?

    Your motor looks fantastic by the way.

    That looks savage. Were the caps plastic welded in and then a light skim over them? By the way would I have to change my lights if I did the same? Surely they are fine with out the washers?

    yeah mines pre-facelift and ditched the poor quality xenons in favour of facelift halogens which imo arnt any worse for light.

    cheers for the comment aswell, been waiting for sunny weather for ages really want to do my write up so need some good pics
    yep was plastic welded and bonded in through the back then skimmed over, you could chance it with xenons and no headlight washers but just be prepared if its found on MOT, im a tester and tbh would'nt give a poo nor would i notice really notice so your probablt be ok as most tester dont even no there part of the test

    I am in Ireland so our tests aren't as strict as your Mot. Also I dont really see the advantage of the washer as I dont think it would have enough power to remove bugs for example. Plus alot of people fit after market xenons to their cars and they have no washers.
