Xenon lights for driving in mainland Europe

I have just joined the forum having bought a 2002 R53. The car already has xenons fitted. I live in France and the vehicle has come from the UK. I have seen several postings on the forum regarding the possibility of changing the Xenons direction for driving in Europe and mention of small lever. I have attached pictures of my lights as they appear slightly different to the ones mentioned previously and I cannot see anything resembling a small lever.

Anyone know if these lights can be "switched" for use in mainland Europe?

There is a switch on the facelift model, not on the pre facelift
