E36 UK headlamp conversion for continental Europe - help please

Hi, Does anyone know how to convert UK (Right-Hand Drive) headlamps for use in France?

It's a standard E36 UK-spec ellipsoid, and I'm trying to block off the part of the beam that will blind other drivers when I'm driving on the other side of the road. I can't seem to get anywhere with taping up part of the lens. I had a friend whose 5-series could be changed from inside the lamp, but the dealer had to do it. Does the E36 have something similar?

If not, any suggestions welcome. Thanks.

I noticed a chapter in my owners manual on that. If you do not have your manual I will paste a copy of the directions hope that helps

That would be great. I've got a manual, but couldn't find anything about it. There must be a way to rotate the lens, but I can't see it...
