    E60 535 headlamp washers

    Hi all

    Anyone ever tried to upgrade their bumper to put it headlamp washers as a retro fit? If so how much hassle was it and what list of parts did you need?

    Cheers

    I think if you're going by the book you'll need the self levelling feature to. Having said that there are people on here with HIDs who have gotten through just fine without either so I think it depends on who tests it.

    Maybe worth a trip to your local tester? I have BMW test mine as they're a short walk from my work, but if I had something slightly questionable I know a garage who will always take a pragmatic view of things!

    well, put it this way, my ones are off until when it comes to the MOT. THe shite they it spray on my bonnet every time they go off is unbelievable. + they eat way too much washer fluid = pointless
