Hi,

I have recently moved to Spain, and decided to take my Z with me (a 2003 model).

Having previously had an Audi TT, I assumed (I know, it's the mother of all f**k ups), that on looking behind the lights there would be a little slider (or similar) to convert from LHD to RHD setting.... On arriving in Spain I popped the lid, and guess what ~ Wrong!!! :-(

Due to the enclosed nature of the lights, I drove from Bilbao down to Murcia thinking I'd sort this when I got here!!! So after scouring the web (and not finding a definitive answer), I jacked-up the car, removed the wheel, and the plastic cover to gain access to the back of the lights - Nothing!!!!

I am now assuming, although I hope somebody can give me definitive answer, that it is impossible to do this? I further assume that placing a sticky beam deflector over XENON lights wouldn't be effective (particularly for long term use)?

So am I faced with buying a new pair of lights? These appear to be VERY expensive (particularly as this is now over 5 years old!)

I found a place in the states on ebay, that sell an after-market version for <£200 including shipping, but am worried about the quality, as well as having to remove the front bumper to fit them!!

Any advice would be gratefully received (Except that I shouldn&#39;t make assumptions, I&#39;ve already had that one from the wife!)

Please help

Dave

I think there is not really an inexpensive way out for you since you have already arrived at your destination. You have to address the situation and change the setting to RHD as soon as possible to keep up with the regulations at the new land. Since you already have a source for new lights, just grab them even though they are going to burn a small hole in your pocket. Lesson learnt -- always research thoroughly before moving out especially on an inter-state move.

Since you are responding to a post made EIGHT years ago, I think it's safe to say the OP either fixed the problem, or sold the Z in the years since!
