As far as I know there isn't a legal requirement for washers. MOT regulations say they must work if they're fitted, but nothing more.

Its in most countries a required thing. To keep the lenses/glas clean, to prevent the light from being split up and distrubuted too much, to not blind traffic comming towards you. also the reason HID kits arent legal to fit as aftermarket products

Don't think UK specification GT86 has headlight washers. Lights are self-levelling to stop glare.

UK GT-86's do have headlight washers and yes, lights are self-leveling to stop glare from road angles not dirt on the headlights that could refract/split the light towards oncoming traffic which the self-leveling can't compensate for.

Just spotted a video clip showing headlight washers on a UK spec car . . . my mistake in earlier posts.
