EU headlamps

Recommended Posts

Bit of a long shot but moving to France in November so looking for a pair of used EU headlamps for my 2013 Ford Focus.  Would swap for UK ones or buy outright.

some cars can be tweaked to swap from the pavement illumination to a flat beam

do they definitely have a different part number when they drive on the wrong side of the road?

Thanks both, mine can't be switched so I need EU headlights. As for eurolites they are ok temporarily but I'm moving permanently so would prefer the correct headlamps.

Wouldn't it be safer to sell the Focus and buy a LHD car over there?

Yes, I wondered that, particularly if you're not coming back. Then les flics won't be able to pick on you as un rosbif !😃

A very expensive option though. Driving RHD cars in Europe is relatively simple.

Been driving my UK Focus on the wrong side of the road full time for the past 10 years and the only inconvenience is when pulling out to overtake and for paying tolls on the motorway.  I never bothered with changing the lights and the only time I have been flashed by oncoming traffic is when heavily loaded and the front is pointing upwards.  I know lots of people get their LHD headlight units from Germany as cheaper and more choice so you could look at ebay.de or similar.
