Wow, what a load old rubbish that article is!

Anyway, the lights on my Fiat are already the projector style with the small spherical lenses, there is no pattern on the plastic cover to bend the light in any way and there is a physical shield inside somewhere that kind of cut the upper portion of the beam off so as not to blind oncoming drivers. You can see this clear line between light and no light if you pull upto a wall with the lights on.

Anyway, since no one is policing this issue, then i'm not too bothered if its legal or not. I'd rather they clamped down on booming aftermarket exhaust pipes, as to be fair, you could argue that xenons give off improved lighting which is a good thing. After all, manufacturer dont put little blue LEDs all over new cars, why, because they are unnecessary and have no safety value, however a half decent brand new car these days allways have xenons.

Case in point.
