OK thanks, I have red the HID retrofit, but i dont have money or time to do it. So i will just install and aim down, and do i have to sand my lense down?

Also thanks to everyone to has helped me here :D


OFF SUBJECT, my Ford EL power steering pump is making a bearing grinding noise, Does anyone know if thats the bear or the actually pump making noise. So do i replace it with a new one or try to replace the bearing?

Thanks heaps! :P

Try reading some ADRs and you'll see.
To summarise; any light source over 2000 lumens must have automatic leveling and headlight washers.

In short, if your car didn't have them the day it rolled out of the factory, then you can't legally run them.
