    Well only one really, ::bigsmile:::bigsmile:

    We have a left hand drive vehicle with round headlights, What do we need to do with them when abroad, do we need beam deflectors or not as it is left hand drive??

    If we do can you get them for round headlights:Eeek::Eeek:

    it'll have been converted when it was imported so yes you'll need beambenders for europe.

    standard beambenders will do.....if too long then just cut them down a bit.

    You can bet your boots that there is an EU regulation stating that you need to have them converted whether you drive at night or not.

    used to be, in the dark and distant past, that a motorcycle didnt need lights.

    only one you had to have was a brake light but you couldnt ride in ANY sort of bad weather or poor light conditions.

    if it had any wiring, switchs or remains of lights they had to work.

    never did find out if it applied to cars as well.
