LHD/RHD Xenon Headlamp useage

I live in Spain & drive a LEFT HAND DRIVE 2000 E39 wagon equipped with Xenon Headlamps. I’ve been in the UK once with the car but stupidly never thought about the headlamps being quite unsuitable for use in the UK (presumably a RHD car’s headlamps would be equally unsuitable for use on the Continent). Are these lamps adjustable in any way or are we just expected to get away with blinding oncoming motorists when driving on the “wrong side”? I understand that stick on beam deflectors are totally unsuited to Xenon headlamps so what can I do & what does everyone else do if they drive on the “wrong side” at night?
