Mine seemed OK but wouldn't be as clear to see with halogens

I'll double check mine

Definitely says rhd on the ad doesn't it?

Doesn’t say on the add but I Spoke to the company before buying them and they said definitely rhd , took them to the mot station to get them aligned and he said they’re for lhd. I’ve messaged the company just waiting to hear back.

Still waiting to hear back from them.

I found a old picture on here that shows the code on the box for right hand drive ones. I can only guess that the LD and RD is for what side of the road there meant for.

A lot of headlights have a switch inside them for changing to lhd rhd but I can’t remember seeing one on these. I’m properly pissed off mate.

I'm gonna check my beam pattern tonight when it's dark
I don't seem to remember seeing a switch but I did fit them in a rush

Got these at a bargain too, maybe too good to be true

Let me know if you find anything out
Ill message them too if i can see a problem with my pattern

They aren't too far away from me, I'm Wolverhampton, they're Telford I think.

I got a good deal as well like £40-50 off, the problem is they are just a reseller, I don’t Think they even stock the lights as mine was sent Straight from Germany there just a middle man.

Went out for a drive last night and it was really obvious they was lighting up the wrong side of the road. I’m surprised nobody flashed me. I couldn’t see sh*t all up left side of the road and it didn’t matter how much I adjusted the lights.

@Nathan how did you get on, heard back today and they are saying there’s a switch inside to change them to rhd, I can’t remember seeing a switch and can’t feel anything inside the light with my hand.

Same as yours
Just not as clear due to using halogens.
I don't remember seeing a switch either but I'll have a check if I got time after work.

They say the switch is inside the lens or just back of the unit?

This is what they said:

Hey,
Next to where you install the headlight bulbs is a small lever. This changes the beam direction. If you move it to the opposite direction this will change the beam direction to UK spec. Your lights are EU and UK spec.

The lever in the down position is left hand drive, the lever pushed in the up-right position sets it to right hand drive.

Hope this helps!
Regards


Iv already took a light out and had a look can’t see no switch.

You can see in this picture the part inside the lens that makes the light kick up to the right. I can’t see how that would be adjustable anyways. It might be possible to take the lens apart and flip the piece of metal around so the higher side is to the left but iv not tried yet, just waiting to hear back from the company again.







It should look like this for rhd.

Reply number 2 from energised customs:

My sincere apologies, upon further checking this doesn't have a lever as they're already set to right hand drive.
Are they absolutely certain these are left hand drive?
We've sold a lot of these and this is the first instance I've come across this
Have they adjusted the back and they're not getting the desired pattern?

Hello mate
Sorry about slow reply, being worked to death.

Have any luck with your lights?
