Hi,

we are off on a Euro road trip in August, taking in the sights of Holland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy and Monaco!! On my old Ford Scorpio, there used to be a little lever which, when moved, changed the lights to LHD compliant units without the need for any tape on the lens etc.

Can this be done with the S Class 220 or do I need to get hold of some genuine light masks?

Thanks in advance for your answers!!

Yes you can move /adjust the beams --but they will need re-setting on return ?
I find its easier to use a stick on beam deflector and just peel it off after if its only a short visit ?

If the lights are Xenon's, the stick on deflector should not be used - use the lever to alter them.
