I think we established that the legal requirement for levellers and washers only applies to HID lamps that are fitted on the production line. I assume it's part of the 'Type Approval' regulations.

After-fit systems can legally be installed and used without either, although the reasons for having the requirement in the first place is no less valid. That said, the auto-levelling requirement is probably there due to the number of muppets who don't know how to use (or can't be bothered using) their headlight levellers. If you use the dial properly, then the HID upgrade shouldn't blind other road users after all.
