Sadly the plate that cuts the top of the beam in the lamps will not do for registering as LHD

The headlamps will have to be changed I feel

+1.

Reregistering English cars in Germany requires replacement headlamps.
Temporary solutions such as beam cut outs don't cut it, as the car won't pass the road safety tests.

I suspect that France will have similar requirements.
