Default Continental Lighting

All being well, my 401 will be in Spain and I will have to sort out the right headlights. Someone said I needed a left-handed Bulb. I never said anything in response as I thought it might be a leg-pull, the same as an apprentice being sent for a box of sparks etc.

I have loads of headlights including PF770's, although not fitted and I need some sensible headlight advice for driving on the right.

BPF bulbs are (were?) produced in left, right and central dip.

An alternative would be to buy a set of lenses that use asymetric bulbs (Lucas 410) with the sliding adjuster at the bottom to switch from left to right hand drive.
