Default Rhd xenon switch over for driing in lhd countries

Hi all!

Just joined having just taken in a rescue lwb sz5 who is settling in fine.

Now, my question to start with is as per the title, projector headlights are in the UK apparently supposed to have a switch to change the shape of the beam for driving in our friends countries who drive on the other(wrong? =-) ) side of the road.
Is this true of the g.vit? Especially as I have also read that beam deflectors can't be used with xenon headlights, which I have. And, where will I find it?

Thanks!

Now it is dark here I have been out and had a play. Seems that the beam pattern is flat with no kick up on the left for the kerbside. So, I guess I don't need to fit beam deflector things for continental driving unless the European lawmen see it otherwise..... may stick some on anyway just to look proper.
But, if anyone knows any different then please let me know.

Cheers!
