Failed Mot

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I have an 2004 avensis, the one before the facelift one

I failed my mot because my headlights are European ones. I have the factory fitted xenon ones with auto leveling

Do u know if I can get them aligned for uk specs to pass it? Or do I have to buy new ones?

Also I was told that my mirror inside the headlights is wearing off. The low beam is not long enough. Maybe 40ft. Any chance I can get new mirrors or do I have to go with what Jemca told me: new headlights (up to 400 pounds without labor)

I live in Croydon so anything near by will b great

Cheers guys

It's not saying that they are the ones with auto motorised leveling thingy :)

there is something in the mot which was updated...if you have the auto levelling system than that should work to pass the mot

I guess I'm not 100% clear but check with mot garage...I might be wrong completely!
