Self levelling is not the button that moves them self levelling have sensors on The front or rear axle that automatically adjusts the head lights in relation to the angle etc of the car

Well,
After much digging around i think i am going to do it the legal way but its gonna take a while because it isnt cheap lol.
I have sorced a headlight levelling kit from a st170 which i think should fit onto mine is there any pics or write ups on how it is done.
Thanks .... Mick

This is a subject that does the rounds on just about every motoring site I visit. It is a very much unclear as to what is legal and what is not. However, the legislative proposal that I have read suggests that the colour temperature of the headlight should match that of standard equipment when the car was new. That would stop any modification (even bulbs!) in a heart beat. I simply can't see this as enforceable, but there you go.

What I will say is that dazzling headlights, or a beam that doesn't meet the correct pattern or has 'scatter' is most definitely illegal (HID or not). Besides that, they are distrating for other motorists and downright dangerous. I've noticed a massive increase in aftermarket kits fitted to vehicles recently, and I actually welcome any enforceable legislation to stop this as most of the time the owners just don't give a damn about what adverse effect their car is having on other motorists.

Unfortunately in some ways, that might hit the projector headlight proper conversions some more savvy motorists are performing, and on the whole these are very good. Sadly that's the way of these things.
