E46 Headlight Replacement

Can anyone out there help me with how I go about replacing E46 headlight units on my BMW 320i SE made August 2002. The lights need to be changed as I am exporting the car from UK to France. Thanks step by step advice would be appreciated, you guessed - I'm not a mechanic!

Dont you have the direction flip over lever for euro driving? then you dont need to change the units. Take a look in the owners handbook.

Mine are behind the headlights, by removing the cover, as when you go to replace a bulb, they are inside and hard to see, mine are red and sprung loaded, I just flip it and the lights move for euro driving.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!

Are they xenon or halogen headlights?
