Just to confirm, the levers on both sides should be down?? Just had a look on mine and the passenger side one was up and the drivers side one down...

On a related note, any reason why the internals for each of my lights would be different? The drivers side has a red and black plastic unit attached to the back of the bulb and the passenger side has a metal silver Philips unit...

Hi. I realise this thread is a bit ancient, but I also need to set my xenon's for driving on the RHS, and unfortunately mine don't seem to be identical to the ones pictured earlier in the thread. I have a Mini Cooper S, December 2003 with the JCW kit (dealer fitted). Mine seems to have a different cover (soft plastic/rubber, just slides on/off with a rubber retaining strap moulded on, i.e. no retaining metal clip) and inside the cover the end of the lamp doesn't have the orange bit beneath the yellow high Voltage notice.

Most significantly, there is no sign of any lever/bar that I could toggle to change the LHS/RHS illumination.

I've attached a few (crappy) photos. Can anyone advise whether my Xenon's are adjustable or do I have to put sticky deflectors on the exterior?

TIA for any advice.
