    Here you go:

    Vehicles with Adaptive Forward
    Lighting
    3 (AFL)

    1. Open fuse box cover in engine
    compartment – see page 247.
    2. Insert fuse (maxi-fuse)
    3 in slot 37. Fuse
    assignment – see page 248.
    3. Switch on ignition.
    Then the AFL control indicator
    B flashes
    for 4 seconds whenever the ignition is
    switched on.

    Control indicator
    B – see pages 104, 133.

    If not AFL then the manual said this:

    Headlights when driving abroad
    The asymmetrical dipped beam increases
    the field of vision on the passenger side of
    the lane.
    This causes glare for oncoming traffic if the
    vehicle is driven in countries where traffic
    drives on the opposite side of the road.
    Do as follows to prevent glare:
    Vehicles with halogen - headlight system
    or Xenon headlight system without
    Adaptive Forward Lighting
    3 (AFL)

    Have the workshop convert the headlights.

    Dunno about the facelift ones (although I thought they were the same system) but in the preface ones you take the back off and flick a switch up or down (depending which way it is at the moment) and that's it. Of course, it wouldn't be the first time I've been wrong about something I don't have

    This is what's in the back of my lights (the bar on the left is the adjuster).

    Facelift you eitehr use deflectors (best to fit them to headlight covers) or try pursuade your stealers to adjust them before you go.If you buy Angel eyes they have the switch also
