Re: Registering French Clio in the UK: Headlights

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Ideally you'll need to change the headlights for ones that dip in the opposite direction to the ones you have before the MOT,but from memory you could get away with sticking beam deflectors on to the lenses to create a flat beam and it should still pass (my MOT testing days ended some time ago though and either my memory may be poor or the rules may have changed).Either way,really if you are going to drive in this country for any reasonable time you need to change the lights.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
