Re: Registering French Clio in the UK: Headlights

Not sure of the age of your vehicle. I recently spent some time looking at recent cars' headlights (Citroen and Renault) and discovered that there is no longer a necessity for beam benders or fiddling about.
Ordinary halogen head lamps (projector type) now just light the road ahead without any 'kickup' for left or right hand drive and hence can be driven in any country without worry.
I checked this with Citroen UK and it is true!
Currently in cyberelic's garage:
Nice new Mercedes B Class with most of the toys...

Re: Registering French Clio in the UK: Headlights

Oops, I wished I had known that before! I went to a Renault garage and they told me that I had to change the headlights, but it's difficult to know whether they told me that just because they wanted to sell a set of headlight. My dad is a mechanics in France and he hears more and more stories of people who have been told to change parts that worked perfectly fine.
Anyway, I've got a pretty cool set of "angel eyes" headlights now (they were just slightly more expensive than the basic ones!)
