retrofitted headlights

I have a question about retrofits..

Are you able to adjust the light as if a normal set of headlights?

I was considering retrofits but here in Ireland cars are put through a road worthyness test each year and one of the things tested is headlight alignment. The light beam has to conform to a machine. Stock headlight can be aligned at a garage but I don't know if retrofits can be alligned???

PM 1badbb6 for advice. He has done his twice now. I am pretty sure if done right they can be aligned.

Re: retrofitted headlights

when I do retrofits for people, most of the sets I do are still fully adjustable with the stock adjusters. If you're needing some RHD projectors, I have some Euro Accord(TSX) projectors that I can use if you're interested
