    Even if you are able to just swap out the assemblies, you won't have any of the self-levelling sensors needed to keep them level and so you will be dazzling motorists...

    Do you have self-cleaning lights now?

    I'm not sure if you will fall foul of the MOT though because I think it only applies to cars with xenons from new and yours won't have.

    However, it maybe they apply this to yours and when they don't self-level or self-clean, it will fail.

    I'd imagine it would be cheaper and a lot less hassle to buy improved bulbs...
