Any car fitted with hids after factory will pass the MOT as long as they have a beam pattern. Even if they dnt have self levellers or washers.

But if a merc or any other car fitted with them from factory went for mot and the pattern was correct but the levellers or washers didn't work it will fail.

I know this as I'm a tester and recently went to an mot seminar where someone asked the question and that was the answer given,

You need a kick up yeh mate, but also it passes even with a flat line. I had Hids in my old D with reflectors and they had a kick up. Where you getting it tested Notts or Birmingham ?

That is the best and most simple reply I've ever seen to this issue people worry about!
