Hi there to all, the 'kick' is only a few degrees (5-7 would be a fair estimate). Getting 'flashed' (unfortunately not of the humourous variety) happens over here as well - then when they get flashed back by me - they realise I didn't have my main beams on after all - does this happen a lot with xenons???

The headlight lenses are of the plastic variety (just checked).

Will contact RAC (I'm a member) and see what they advise - if I do go to France this year, I'll have my wee lad with me, so no night driving as such, but it would definitely be good to know how I (and others) would stand.

Once again, thanks for the help.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
