    You can't get the correct RHD pattern like this: \_____ .

    The factory Xenons only have provision to remove the cutoff if you are driving on the other side of road in another country as a temporary measure.
    I see. Thanks Graeme86, you are very knowledgable!

    HID kits are illegal if you plan to install them in your halogen headlight assembly

    Many people want to know if HID kits are legal because they want to retrofit their halogen headlights with them. If you’re one of those people, listen Up!
    It is not illegal to manufacture HID conversion kits. It IS illegal to convert a headlight assembly that was made for halogen light bulbs. Those headlights were certified by the D.O.T for a halogen bulb and meet Federal lighting standards for beam focus and light output. Those Federal regulations aren’t just some namby pamby rules. They’re in place for a reason. If you ignore this and install HID bulbs and the glare from those bulbs interfere with another driver’s vision, causing an accident, YOU will be held liable.
