    Have had a good look on the forum and Google but can't find any definitive answers,

    I need to adjust my headlights for driving on the right hand side when we go to Holland and Belgium later this year, I don't think it's possible for me to use the stick on converters as HID's

    Some cars seem to have adjusting screws or levers to change from LHD to RHD I don't think I have these.

    So apart from taking to a dealer which won't really work as I'd still need to drive at night in this country after they've been adjusted does anyone know how this can be done? Cheers Alex

    I'm not sure on this, I'd be interested in hearing the answer though.

    My gut feel is that you can't change the \_ \_ shape to a _/ _/ shape be adjustment but I maybe wrong.

    That's what I was dreading lol, some HID don't need adjustment apparently and are suitable for both, can't see how that would work though

    That kind of sound like they have a flat line shape to them so instead of \_ \_ its more __ __ is my guess but that would mean they don't light up the side of the roads so well at all ??

    Yeah that's what's been said, I may have to find a nice wall somewhere and see what sort of beam pattern I'm getting and go from there.
    Just don't know what to do if they can't be adjusted lol

    Tried to take photos but its impossible to see on the screen, the headlights do rise up to the left hand side but very slightly so I don't think it will be a major issue
    Think il just risk it

    HID'S are flat beam so don't need adjusting for continental driving.
