    hella front lights

    do i need some sort of adaptor for these to convert from LHD?

    The guy that was adjusting them for me said that i wouldnt pass MOT cause the 'flick' from the lights is goin the other way.

    Anyone confirm?

    Cheers

    I think it's the shape of the reflector that causes the opposite flick to RHD cars - if it is, IMO your stuck

    Right - I've just loked at the Hella GB, belgian and french website and they all list the same part number for the Astra G quad - so it looks like they are adjustable

    Left and right hand drive headlamps are different. As we drive on the left our lamps kick up to the left where the verge is. LHD Lamps Kick up the opposite way. So LHD lamps on a RHD car kick up into the oncoming traffic. This is why they wont pass an MOT.
