Ive passed MOTs with the HIDs - Ive also seen the pattern on the beam checker and it looked the same as a normal bulb...

TBH Theres more people about with one badly aimed headlight than with poor quality HIDS coffee

it state's in the high way code that no other bulb should be fitted other than the one designed to fit in your light fitting, therefore if the fuzz wish too they will do you for it !

hmm..its very very difficult to prove..and unless they are traffic "fuzz" they wudnt be likely to know even what an HID lamp is let alone if its not kosher...not that thats an excuse or reason to get them fitted...
