Xenon adjustment for Vel Satis in Europe - is it needed?

Hi there, have searched and noticed questions along a similar vein for more popular Renault models, and was wondering if any of my fellow members (especially those with the more obscure cars - like mine) know definitively if there is a LHD/RHD set-up?
I used to drive to France very frequently, but not since my son was born, and I bought this car.
What I have read thus far seems to fall into the following 3 categories - no adjustment is required (which would be great); it's adjusted by a lever (again, bit of a hassle - but fine); dealer adjustment only (bit of a problem here - I would need to liase with a dealer in Kent and France to set the beams up before each crossing).
I'm given the impression that 'beam-benders' aren't suitable, and Renault (nor anyone else for that matter) make headlight protectors.

Sorry to have run on a bit, but please, I would appreciate solid answers rather than 'best guesses' for my car.

Thanks in advance,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
