Question Light bulbs, an MOT Tester's advice on the matter required.

Has anyone seen these new type bulbs?, in particular the orange indicator ones that are half silvered.
Its apparently to make the bulb look invisible in the modern clear lenses until it is lit, then the silvered element acts as a reflector, in addition to the reflector in the housing.

Question, are these legal? and if a car is fitted with them would it pass its MOT ?........ Its just that its always been one of the few points of my Espace that I've disliked, the headlights have these awful orange blobs .... Oh such vanity

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
