Static headlight aim and pattern is part of the MOT,auto adjustment or headlamp wash/wipe systems aren't.If you've got Xenon lights,as long as the beam is aimed correctly and gives the accepted pattern as part of the static test,it passes regardless of whether they self adjust(difficult to test as part of an MOT anyway!) or whether the wash wipe is fitted/working.

The Police work under different rules (construction and use)from the ones used as part of the MOT,so I wonder if they could prosecute for the above systems not working......

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
