They have agreed to cover it without self levelers and washers installed? Surely that makes it an illegal mod which won't be covered then? Just wondering as if I would declare it to mine if they let me

 

 As a follow up to your question I would like to link you to this:-

 

http://www.corsa-c.c...HIDS-April-2012

 

so as of April 2012 they are legal as long as they are aligned properly (but that would only hinder and MOT test if they wernt, though you could risk a £30 fine is PC plod thinks they are not aligned). As for your levellers and washer jets query, they only need to be operational if your  car has them fitted which the fiesta does not. So make sure their aligned then decalare away!!

 

Awesomeness!! :D Looks like mine are staying in!!

Im not so sure as I know of a few people who have Subaru imprezzas with xenons as standard but they don't have washer jets.

To pass the mot they have had to install washers for them. This is as recent as a couple of weeks ago. In N.I. though,we have to go to a test center instead of a garage.

Still raises questions to the legality of them if an accident were to occur.

Ive just had clarfication from someone in the know, If a car is brand new and the factory is fitting them with HID's they must now fit auto levellers and washer jets AND they must both be fully fuctional to make it legal and pass and MOT. HOWEVER if the car is new/old and does not have them as a factory fit and they are added later they DO NOT require washer jets/auto levellers but the beam pattern must stil be correct...only way to do that is with projector headlights that are correctly aligned. It is that simple!! Same as DRL's new cars that are not fitted with them but you can retro fit to old cars as long as you follow the correct guidelines (the turn on with the engine, not a seperate switch etc). Thats why my insurance were happy for me to add them to my poiicy yesterday as they are legal to retro fit to a vehicle without levellers/washer jets its my responsibility to get them aligned in the projector housings correctly!!

Yup, the lowering/alloy spray will have to wait until xmas, next month its exhaust. Booked in for them to have a look at the car and advise me next saturday (12th oct) then will be fitted during the last week of October once I get paid!! Can't Wait!!! With the induction kit Ive got and the exhaust they should sound pretty sweet together!!

Good to know on the xenons. Might have to give the insurance company a call and see what they say.

Fiesta ST Update : I decided to do an economy run through my local town centre to see what Felicity could do. With the stop start driving, traffic lights, pedestrians etc plus a bit of good fortune a few times where I didn't have to brake and stop etc and she managed an average of 47.6mpg! Not too bad considering she has only done 680miles. Quite happy with that and hopefully she will do even better once there are a few thousand miles on the clock!!  :D

Update:- So after a trip to the garage yesterday for an assessment, I am all booked in for fitting in 2 weeks time, I'll keep it a surprise what exhaust I went for in the end after looking at so many, reading reviews, comparing options, prices and of course sound...I guess only time will tell if I have made the right decision!!  :)
