Headlight adjustments for Europe

Taking the beast around the continent this week. Thought I had sorted everything but had forgotten about headlights. People (and the Interweb) tell me I need to have my lights adjusted. I've always rented locally so this wasn't a concern before. I also read Xenons are different to other lights.

So, do I need to do anything with my xenons before I hit up France? Cos I don't imagine that stick-on thing would have any effect.

Thanks.

IIRC you can't do anything to the Xenon's unless you have the optional adaptive lights which I think have a Euro road setting.

That sounds about right to me too. Didn't take the adaptive lights option though so can't check it out...

If you feel like a visit to Belgium drop in and say hi! We can't offer the most exciting roads but we have the best beer.

Cheers guys.

Well I picked up some circular thingies for £2 cos they specifically said they're for BMW xenons. Probably a con, but better than getting stung at the French port by being made to pay for an over-priced equivalent.

Cheers for the invite 123D, enjoyed the Belgian beer many times. But now they're insisting I have a fire extinguisher, triangle, first aid kit, GB sticker and yellow jacket to drive there!
