After market HID's & the NCT

Folks

having fallen victim to this, just letting you know that the NCT is now awarding a Fail/Refusal for "HID Bulb fitted in a non HID-Lamp".

Please come back again with the bulbs removed and have a retest for €28.

The 166 had comfortably passed its two previous tests with the bulbs in place (FWIW, apart from this new item, it got a clean bill of health).

Edit: After liberal use of a generic internet search engine ... it seems the test change was implemented in 2012; see Section 30, Page 47.

That doesn't include the Phillips Xtreme/Osram Nightbreakers though?
I passed mine last May or so with Osrams....

No, those are regular 55w incandescent bulbs. It's the type that need ballast that are the problem.

I have the Nightbreakers myself on the high and low beams, they are brilliant (pun intended!).

No harm having a bit of humour on here!
I've not bothered with the high beams.
