    The Xenons on the wifes MINI Countryman bob up and down a bit as you go down uneven roads - far more distracting IMO... But factory fit with self levelling and washers therefore perfectly legal...

    Yeah I've noticed them types behind me and look like they are flashing me

    Surely anything that helps you see better at night but safely set up and checked has to be a good thing .......right?

    I agree, if safely set up, that's my point. As usual for everyone who gets reasonable kit and takes care to fit and adjust it correctly, there are 3 others who buy cheap Chinese kack and just slap it on. Mostly Corsa's and Astra's I might add.

    i think they are ok if they are used on projector lamps as they still show a beam pattern, i was following police the other day and they didnt do anything. would have been a different story if it was my mate driving his mk3 astra :P
    even so the law is stupid. if the lights are bright to you Don't fookin look into them!

    I have had them aligned troops and they are fine, as said before some of the cars that come with them factory fitted are horrendous on the roads..like isignias, civic,Land rovers they are all worse than mine. Just because its an older car ive been pulled...but I dont have headlight wash also so I think this was the geezers exuse to pull me and go through me..tryin to sort out some headlight washers for the car and I should be fine. I've also got the shrouds on so it isn't that bad.
    Thanks for the help lads
