  1. Headlights Abroad

    Electronics
    I have a 2011 Renault Trafic. Is there a way to switch the lights for driving on the continent, without having to put stickers on the lights.

    For any regular travellers across to Europe, (without fancy lights aka the Espace that just enables you to switch beam from rhd to lhd with a switch) the dreaded beam convertors can be a pain.
