    Hi all, currently considering which new van meets my needs. One of the things I'm keen to avoid is having to fit sticky beam deflectors every time I cross the Channel which can be quite often. I'm aware that some MB cars can adjust headlights either via the infotainment system or by moving a switch within the headlamp unit itself. Does anyone know whether any of the factory fitted Sprinter headlamp options offer this facility?

    You'll need headlights with projector lens - looks a bit like a clear glass ball - with these you can adjust the beams.

    Not always, but at least there's a chance.

    If Ron is looking to buy a new van, surely the best place for good info on this subject is the van dealers ????
