We always used to sell a different brand of converters but we have now changed to the new style UK patented headlight deflectors that the RAC and the Drive-France.com website recommend.
We hold the Drive-France.com website in high regard when it comes to all things "driving in France" as it has long been a trusted resource for hints and tips when it comes to motoring through Europe.
Drive-France.com said "After testing these new style Headlight Deflectors we found them to be far better than the other brands available and immediately decided change the brand we recommend to our website visitors". **
** Some time after the above recommendation was made the owners of the Drive-France website (AG Motor Group) purchased this website and we are now part of the same company. Which I guess shows they were really impressed with the headlamp converters we sell!
If you'd like to read a review of these converters and detailed fitting instructions by a totally independent website see the article about them here on Wheels-Alive.
We gave one of our regular customers, Mr Andrew Willis, some to try and this is what he emailed us.
The reason I prefer these, is that you don't really need the instructions. On most - if not all - modern cars, there's a little blip/bump on the headlight showing where the centre of the dipped beam is. These adapters have a little circle that needs to surround the bump.
Then, you just have to make sure you have them the correct way up. EU at the top for adapting a UK car to Europe, and GB at the top for the other way around. I've taken a close up photo and marked the important bits in yellow circles so you can see what I mean.
I could be wrong, but I thought my headlights were brighter with these on, so all around - that's why I prefer them. With the Eurolites, even with the instructions you can never be sure you've got them in the right place... You can quote me on all of this if it's any help...
