After 18 months and 15000 miles of trouble free and very cheap motoring things caught up with me a bit at this years MOT via the dreaded shock absorber bushes and a broken front spring, the latter down to Bradford Councils speed hump obsession I suspect!

Also, the headlight alignment has been queried, as it seems to be in LHD configuration. I'd never noticed this, but after a drive last night I'm sure they are right. Another mystery, along with the Lancia front grille!? They've given me it as an advisory as they passed it last year. I suspect they are not adjustable?

My theory is that the car had an accident damaging the grille and lights. To save money the Polish/Baltic state seller bought the parts from Poland. People may think that I used to be an investigator.......

Neil ,I imported New an ypsilon in 1999 and even then there was controversy about if the headlights were centre dip, they weren't and all ypsilon since then have only been built in LHD form, I think the certificate of conformity States this, I always kept my lights on the lowest setting and never had a problem with dazzling oncoming traffic.
There was someone who for quite a large fee would take your headlamps apart and fit the innards of a end French car to overcome the problem
New Delta had the same problem, a friend cut slots in the side of the headlamp body and stuck beam benders on the inside of the headlamps
