Edit: Whoops already in the thread.
My 156 has headlight washers and it didn't come with Xenons? There won't be anywhere near the glare there would be with a reflector based headlight. Some halogen projectors work very well with plug n play HID kits. Don't forget, they still have a beam mask. Only way to find out is to try.But they still wouldn't have headlight washers or the auto-levelling motors or sensors, so technically it would be against transport regs. The projector design also wouldn't be optimized for xenon burners so there could be glare for oncoming traffic.
The motors don't react fast enough for bumps in the road, they are only there to adjust the stance of the car based on the suspension load. IE if you have to fat people in the back seat, the front points up so the sensors would adjust the headlights to point down.Yup, my previous 147 also had headlight washers with halogen bulbs. Unfortunately that's not enough for a road-legal xenon setup.
The key is the auto-levelling system - on a Mito with factory xenons, the beams move up and down on startup, some kind of diagnostic I guess. The levelling motors keep the lights level based on sensors in the front and rear bumper. Without them, your lights could blind oncoming drivers if there's a crest or bump on the road.
Quite right. If people thought about the rear load of their car and adjust the height manually (as I do) then we wouldn't have this problem. And I'm always cleaning the lights in these wintery conditions to ensure max light output and reduce any possible glare.The motors don't react fast enough for bumps in the road, they are only there to adjust the stance of the car based on the suspension load.
