Under European Law Xenon lights can only be fitted where there is a headlamp self-levelling system and headlamp washers. Yeh the Fiat stuff is generally cheaper than the French spares. Personally I hate the darn things simply because they dazzle other poor motorists like me cos the self-levelling system reacts too slow. Even with fully comp insurance and having to pay any excess during a claim and then the loss of any bonus it can still prove expensive. At least with the standard lights they can be bought cheaply enough as after-market items.
