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.
Thanks mate for the tip.

I may go for a complete retrofit, if possible.
I may add the sensors and washer jets. Its a proper job, especially running the wires from the sensors to FRM, but not impossible.
