I'm going to be taking my RHD 316 compact to a country where I will be driving on the right instead of the left as usual.

My handbook mentions that the headlights can be adjusted for driving on the other side of the road. Does anyone know how to do this ?

I am assuming your vehicle is a UK spec Compact in which case it will have the 900X bulb headlights, and as far as I know these can only be "converted" by using the sticky black plastic method on the front lens.....the bulb cannot be turned to replicate LHD pattern. Even the E36 projector dip headlights need a lot of work to enable them to be "turned" ( I know I have looked and thought it was too much trouble although if you were travelling abraod for a considerable time it would be worth doing).
I had Hello projector lights fitted to my Galaxy and that just needed a quick turn of the reflector to chnage them over to LHD very neat indeed.

Best regards David
