    Do you mean proper xenons or replacement Halogens ?

    If proper xenons you will need the auto-levelling system and headlamp washers as well to pass the MOT next year

    Whatever you do,tell the insurance company first.

    There are so many people around to tell you what happens if you don't.
    Any mods are worth running by them first.

    If you don't mention it,and they find out then watch the problems begin.

    My own experience has been to be totally honest with whoever is insuring you and put it all in writing so that there is no room for weasling in the case of an accident.

    The point I was trying to make Alex is that 100 watt bulbs are not legal for road use in the UK !!

    I thought it might be but I know nothing about that side of things !

    I was trying to make sure he tells the insurance people everything or he may end up being uninsured.

    I think there are a lot of illegal lights being used and one person near us must have a set of those in his van as everything for miles around gets a dose of it.
