    Yes, they plug straight in. No rewiring, no cutting, no bulb failure warnings. Truly plug and play.

    I am unsure if they will have levelling adjustment??? Quite often they dont.

    No they don't, you will lose your headlight height adjustment so the rotary switch is redundant. I got the DRL switch and fitted that instead :eyebrows:

    Isn't headlight adjustment a legal requirement? (Unless you have xenons)

    Not if your headlight beam aim is correct. The adjuster is just there if you have a haevy load or towing a caravan etc

    I think it's a legal requirement that you have headlight adjustment on your car - whether auto-levelling or manual adjustment, not having it is an MOT failure.

    No it isn't. I'm an authorised examiner and headlight levelling is not a testable item, only headlight beam aim

    Gary's right, Lots of cars don't have auto or manual levelling. Might you be thinking of the requirement to have auto levelling with xenons?

    Fair enough, I stand corrected. So can you have a new car (without xenons/auto-levelling) with no way to adjust the headlights from inside the cabin?

    In a word yes, but I can't think of any manufacturer who doesn't supply a manual switch for normal halogen lights.
