These headlamps can be adjusted at each corner to get the right level and beam distribution which I appreciate doesn't meet the requirement. But it does make a legal beam pattern achievable.
The headlamps are not altered to fit LED's which is also what the regs say you can't do. So this is perhaps being very literal in terms of what the law is trying to achieve but I wouldn't have any qualms about that bit, so long as the headlight aim/beam is right the purpose built projector lenses do a good job.
- As long as the headlamp aim achieved is equivalent to legal non self levelling Halogen bulbs.
- The headlamps not altered
My head says they are doing as job as good (in terms of oncoming traffic safety and driver vision) as factory options.
I hope I not missing the point here because as always we must be protected from complete and selfish idiots and this law was bought in due to the negligent levels of such people who are happy to dazzle and blind other drivers.
I think these lights trying to provide a safe, cheap solution to better the vision, safety and styling for those who don't have £1500 upwards. You could argue it manages some of the idiots who might be able to get their hands on these instead.
Then if worse comes to worse you can reinstall halogen bulbs for dipped/main beam and everything is legal as I understand it.
This is only based on my opinion and shame on VW for ridiculous for the hideous cost of upgrading which in 2017 was indeed circa £1500
