Its really down to the MOT tester, but if you are concerned then remove them and fit standard bulbs for the MOT :)

its not the law yet but if they have not got a leveler on the suspension and headlamp wash it will be a fail. dont know when its coming but it will be soon and also air bag is as well. i done a vosa course other week for hgv inspections + class 4 and 7
but at the moment if the beam is ok it will pass

Really does depend on the tester

Mine passed a week ago :thumbsup
adjust the beams down low if they dazzle at all.

They should have shrouds to stop the reflector blasting light everywhere :thumbsup

They have always passed on our MINI Cooper when it has gone in for test... But having said that, it is always down to the discretion of the MOT tester.:thumbsup

I believe that they will be an MOT failure later this year without suitable shrouds, headlamp levelling and headlamp wash...:frown

Providing the pattern/cutoff is fine then you can't fail them for not having washers, or self levelling. Grrrrrrrr
