Re: Down loaded manual

The legislation regarding HID headlights applies to all EU countries. How each country is effective at enforcing it is in the lap of the gods. But contacting your local test centre should clarify the situation

The law clearly states that where HID lights are fitted there must be a system of self-leveling fitted. On most cars this involves sensors on the suspension plus motors on the heaglamps plus a specialised control unit. The cost of fitting such a system as an after-market system would probably cost more tha the car would be worth.
