following my thread about my new headlights -
i have just been to the garage to see about getting them aligned and they said they cant do them because the are LHD lights

other people have had these lights have you not?
any ideas on what to do?

ah, i didnt know i was getting them, so i didnt have a say in the situation, but from the search i did i found this -
http://www.corsasport.co.uk/board/viewthread.php?tid=254319
this has my lights on it
I then found this -
http://www.rimstyle.com/catalog/customer/product.php?productid=1&cat=&page=1
which does say on the web page -
Please be aware that these headlights are designed to Left Hand Drive (LHD) specification. Some MOT stations will pass the vehicle, but it is down to the discretion of the tester.
