headlights for europe
#1
Does anyone know if the headlights can be adjusted for driving in Europe? if not then i guess stickers are the only way.

That topic has been covered a couple of times if memory serves but the solution escapes me at the moment. A search should turn up helpful information.

I frequently drive on the Continent, and I gave up years ago bothering about adjusting the headlights to dip to the right rather than left or even putting stickers on them. Simply adjusting them as low as they will go is quite sufficient. If you really want to do more, use black insulation tape to block out the section of the headlight glass through which light shines to the left and upwards. But, in my experience, you really don't need to bother.

I know the odd occasion I've seen someone parked on the left facing me with their headlights on, it's blooming dazzling and this is what the oncoming traffic would have to put up with if you were driving on the other side of the road. I doubt that tipping them down would be enough, and you'd be at risk of getting stopped as well as annoying lots of people.

I set my H/lamps low & never get flashed on A roads which leads me to believe they're acceptable.

Well exactly. It doesn't take a genius to work out why those over the channel think we're a load of arseholes does it?

What berlingo do you have if it's a MK 3 i don't think you need to do anything the way the light's are set up these day's they have a level cut off point so you don't get the scatter of the older type of light's

Me, too! The adjustment on the Berlingo allows you to set the dipped headlights very low. Just got back from France again and had no problems.

Many retailers sell them, for a few quid its not worth the hastle of being stopped or being inconsiderate to others.

You don't need to stick beam changers on current Berlingo. I emailed Citroen & they sent me a letter stating they are not required.
