AFAIK a simple adjustment won't do; the beams are set to higher level for the UK offside to the left, right into oncoming drivers in France.

umm i think you can rotate the projectors 180 degrees in those lights and get by with them... dont take my word for it, but before you go and buy new lights it might be worth a try...

thank you that will be worth a try i didnt think of that at all,the main beams should be ok,it just didnt make sense to have to change the lamps because they do not shine thru a director screen like some older models it just seems to be clear
