Yes it specifically says in the MOT manual now about retro-fitted xenon headlamps to "Check for correct levelling operation" and "Check headlamp cleaning system".

Hopefully this will get some of the shitty HID conversions off the road. I'm not saying yours is shitty, makkan00, as you're using proper OEM assemblies but people who put re-based H7 HID bulbs is parobolic reflectors dazzling everyone should be shot.

Even with OEM light assemblies though, you might need a friendly MOT tester to overlook the lack of levelling / washers.
