Default 407 headlamps adjusted for continental driving

hi all, going to France soon in the 407 but unlike the 406 I own there are not any markings on the headlamp glass/plastic which I can use to mask off my lamps for driving on the RH side of the road. Any suggestions (other than drive in the daylight only)

There may be a switch on the headlight to adjust the beam. Check your handbook.

I saw it in a handbook of one of my cars. Just can't remember if it was the Volvo, the Leon, the 307, the Clio....

Dunno if it's right or not but I saw on another forum that euro cars have a flat light pattern now.
