For those of you who wants a high quality kit thats does work and doesnt damage the wiper motor and that has minimal glare.
Finally the codition of the healmap itself can be a key factor in glare a dirty lense will scatter light everywhere more so on non projetor lenses but even on oem projector ones too. Theis is why they MOT is supposed to stipulate HID is used on cars with headmap wash only (note alot of the japan made cars with Factor HID dont though especially imports) I guess they dont have much dirt on the roads over threre but at the end of the day we all know headlmap wash is neither as use as an ornament in actually cleaning the healamp itself in any case.
All well and good Andi but still won't pass the MOT after January 1st without washers and self-levelling !
Depends where you take your car down to m8 and how strict they are on stuff like this. (but i guess thats individual choice)
i would would be more concerned aboutr the drivers that run around with 7000k-12000k HIDs as they look ****e.
i all for HIDs any day as long as it is done correctly with proper 6000k and below bulbs.
Correct colour temp is 4150. The best aftermarket kits are 4300k.
Khufu, as for your testers getting you in trouble for passing stuff they shouldn't because it isn't on the car, who is to say that the car hasn't been changed in the interim?
I am sure there are plenty people who put cats on to pass emissions then remove them once the mot certificate is in their hands.
With these kits, it's very easy to put standard bulbs in for an MOT and then revert to the aftermarket HIDs after you've passed. To those who are concerned, even if you have no MOT certificate you don't get points, you get a maximum of a £1000 fine. I am not advocating not getting your MOT done. I always have and always will, and my car is always in a more than legally roadworthy state, I am just pointing out the flaws in the system.
You can buy adapter kits, but would need coding in an ideal world, but that doesnt get round the law to cometh in Jan mate, levelling systems & headlight ashers will be an mot test now, of which both are required for the xenon headlights, now all these can be fitted of course, but requires a new bumper if you dont have washers fitted already, if you ever want to venture into this, give me a shout as I do these installs all the time, supply/fit, paint the lot if close enough, along with hire care if need be.
