    Thumbs Up Passed my MOT today! With 55w HID's in standard lights..

    With me worrying about having stuff wrong with my car i got my MOT done early so i would have time to fix anything that could have been wrong.
    But... It Passed!!!
    Wasn't even at my usual place so didn't know anyone there. I have 55w HID's in dipped, main and fog lights in all standard lights and saw them test beam pattern and everything was fine, no advisories on lights or anything.
    Hope this will put some peoples mind at rest about HID's in standard lights.

    Nice one.

    So there was no need for you to worry at all.

    Now all you need to do is get your rear splitter on properly and the car will be finished!

    front fog lights are not part of the MOT.

    the NT may have just pressed the wrong button

    I thought whatever lights are on the car must work, including foglights. Might be wrong or maybe its different over here (N.Ireland)
