Good info on the not impacting MOT pass/fail result :s_thumbsup (other testers could have different opinions maybe?).
Probably worth keeping an eye out for headlamps at good prices for the future?

I only use that tester. In any case, the MOT test these days is more tightly controlled, documented and executed. I see no reason why a similarly disposed RAV would fail an MOT.

I have less faith in the testers (Suzuki Swift failed on brakes - I knew that was wrong and took it to another station who passed without ANY changes being made)

Well whatever, I'm quite happy with my headlights now and I'm not looking for replacements!
