Just wondering if these would pass a WOF before I import one for my car?

Import from where?
If you buy them from the US or any other LHD country, they will not pass.
The light cutoff has to be correct for RHD cars.
I was told once opened up it is a matter of swapping some parts from left to right to make them from LHD --> RHD however do not know for sure.

Otherwise, they should pass

thanks for the response. i found one Mirage in NZ being sold using those lights. the car has a current WoF so i'm guessing it's safe. I read somewhere you're not meant to have more than 4 types of lights in front including the fog lamp so I was hesitant to import one. I might just have to disable one of them although technically those LEDs wouldn't be proper lights.

They will be fine. I've got them exact lights on my car and they are very easy to convert to RHD. When you remove the rubber gromet on the back of the light u will see the back of the projector. At the underneath of the projector there is a screw and a plate, loosen the screw and slide the plate across and tighten screw again. Job done, simple. Also it says not to use xenon bulbs but I find that halogen bulb are a bit rubbish so I am currently using 6000k xenon bulbs and haven't had a problem as yet.

Hope this helps

My headlights turn on but sometimes there is a delayed second between switching the lights on and the the light actually coming on. Sometimes the light doesnt come on at all. So i have to put high beams on then flick them off and that works. Other times when the light is on with high beam and i flick high off and the both turn off? Ive checked the ground wires and fuses..there allgood.what could it be???? Also my reverse lights are not working. They sometime click on for a secong then off again..ive again checked fuses and bulbs and there allgood.. hope someone can help me please!!!

I would start by checking the relays for the headlights, and reverse lights, and additionally for the reverse lights there is a plug type thing on the gearbox which recognizes when R is selected to switch on the reverse lights, maybe this sensor is broken
