Up here if youre caught you must take the car to an mot approved garage where the must remove the hid and refit normal lights then stamp a police ticket to say its been done very expensive as you pay for labour fitting and removal as well as the mot
My mates have been adjusted by a garage and they still blind people as his lenses are halogen lenses and vosa are amending the mot rules to fix the hid issue so be warned youre insurance is also invalid as the light are illegal invalidating youre mot and therefore the insurance if they say you blinded them they have you bang to rights im not against them just against poorly fitted diy jobs that nearly cause accidents
If you want them ebay do proper hid headlights with the proper lenses yes they are dearer but at the very least are legalish
To my knowledge down here in the northwest we won't too bad as yet. Mine passed an MOT with them fitted, only 2 months ago, I even queried it with the tester and he said they were alligned and fine, soiI want going to argue. Regarding getting pulled, they don't make you have the lights removed at a garage,,, they give you 14 days to make the vehicle road worthy, ie, remove them yourself, fit standard bulbs, take to an MOT testing station, and get them to stamp the form saying they are now ok ( £6 last time I checked ) so in my opinion not a massive risk.But each to their own I guess.
