Depo? Or Spec-D / Junyan?

 

If it's the latter, it doesn't look like the bottom one on this does it?

You know the aim of the USA headlights will be off right

^^^This.

 

Unless you get RHD lights, you'll never pass MOT.

Scotzman, if it turns out they are LHD and not suitable for you, let me know how much you want for them. Cheers!

Ekona's right though. If your headlights are for LHD the beam pattern will be wrong, which would be a cause for failure. :( If you look at my pic above, the left hand side of the beam is higher than the right. If your headlight is for LHD, it'll be the exact opposite.

 

Poop picture as I couldn't be bothered to upload my own, but here's a pic from the MOT guidelines:

Or if you want to take a proper look it's in section 1.8 of this PDF.

Sounds good :)

Even if it does pass because you have a hooky tester, it's also bloody dangerous for others on the road who have to stare into your dazzling lights. Have a bit of respect for your fellow drivers, please :thumbs:

Hmmm... I'm afraid I can't really tell toooooo much from those, but it looks like you have an insanely intense hot spot. I say this not only because of the output on the wall, but also the light output on the ground. You can clearly see 2 beams, and they're both quite narrow. If that is the case, there isn't much that can be done. It's not due to bulb alignment, but more of the design of the headlight. It actually almost resembles the bad light beam that I showed you in my pic above (bottom of the 2), but slightly better as it doesn't have the circular dark patch.

 

Also it looks like the passenger side one is aimed very far right. I'd aim that further left if I were you.

 

Please take all of the above with a pinch of salt. I've been getting into headlights / projectors (weird hobby I know!), but I'm far from an expert!

 

In terms of pic, a little further back and against a flat wall would be ideal. Kind of like this but without bricks (if possible):

It's hard to please Hodaka with headlight pics, I still havent been able to satisfy his exacting standards either :lol:

flat carpark, night-time, far enough away, non-coloured/brick wall thats smooth etc

 

Your eBay link doesnt seem to work though Scotzman, you have the facelift LEDs but your Item number links to pre-facelift headlights?

Hi Sargara, they are pre-facelift lights according to the site... all u do is put the number 112280174311 in ebay search bar and it will show you the headlights, i was assured by the seller all i have to do is adjust the throw of them.. I will do as you suggested tonight with the lights. Thanks for your time
