xenon are not legal unless they have eu stamps on them which bypasses the UK law on them which is they are not
they have to accept them if they have e stamp on them
issue is to make them legal you have to have self leval and cleaning the specs are also subject to eu rules

Supposedly, these can be construed as illegal (under the Construction and Use Act) unless you have headlamp washers and a lamp levelling system. The pull goes like this: the police can ask you to turn the lights on, sees that they are Xenons and then asks you to use the washers. If you have washers on them, one plod will bounce the rear of the car to see if the lights move.

If it fails you can be done with a producer, penalty and points
