They said they had to put it onto an MOT tester machine ?? to set the aim and changed the aim using the screws on top of the headlights.

They only charged me 15 for the priviledge, but I can now see alot further than before ! Money well spent in my view ! Cant put a value on safety !

Good advice Dave - not only will the MOT machine check the direction but also the light pattern
