Just be warned your car WILL now fail a MOT if you have it tested with these fitted.

​So do I and none would be so stupid to pass something that is so blatantly obvious....

The common reason people MAY get stopped is due to glare coming from the 'Reflective' Headlights.Those are blatantly obvious because they don't scatter the beam correctly.
As for 'Projector' Headlights this is not the case.
Iv been blinded by factory fitted Xenons on these newer cars many times.
Therefore in my experience it's not a top priority for Police because it's really difficult to tell unless it's 'Reflective'.
Also if you've got a really old car say pre 2003 that can also be a risk but even then your reaching.
These put out more light and if you go for the correct Kelvin rating there's no harm in this.
Just my opinion,do as thou wish,I'm buying 2 kits..

Absolutely hate inconsiderate drivers who insist on putting HID lights into reflector headlights as the bean pattern scatters everywhere blinding other road users. If you don't want to go down the road of genuine Xenon headlights get some decent Halogen bulbs from Philips (Night Vision plus for instance) not HID chav headlights.

So what you are saying is you know several corrupt officials that can be either fined, jailed or both.
Nice to see how you treat your friends. Passing a vehicle as fit for the road, knowing it isn't is a criminal offence. You may dress it up as you like and justify it to yourself. However don't try and pass this deal off as a a good thing.
Let me guess are you also in on this new craze of removing the front licence plate and sticking it on the dashboard to make your cat look cool.

Surely having a cat on the dashboard is illegal as well?

Make sure you buy the resistors for them but Iv heard they don't really last.Also make sure the light is projected out at the end of the bulb not just the side as on some LEDs..

Its not just an MOT failure, if you have/cause an accident whilst these lights are fitted or in use you could be left uninsured or facing further charges.
I think the comment made earlier about sticking with fitting the correct Philips night vision bulbs or similiar is the way to go.

Thank you for your input..I do have the Phillips Diamond Vision bulbs fitted but I payed £24..I figured at £16.49 and done right HIDS would be a good option.

​They won't be fitted right because they cannot be fitted right, its like fitting a microwave into your oven when the heating element has broke....

The whole reason why they are now part of the MOT is because of the problems these kits cause!

Give it a rest..

Department of Transport Guidance, from 2010. It is NOT legal to sell or use HID headlamp conversion kits.
