    Xenon lights question

    On my present car, when I travel to Europe, I flick a switch behind the headlights so that they don't dazzle oncoming drivers when I'm driving on the right. It is a real pain though (the switch is hard to reach) and more often than not I don't bother.

    Does anyone know if the 997 has such a switch, and how easy is it?

    Cheers.

    like you actually go outside underneath your trunk/hood and hit a switch behind your headlights?

    Yeah, but I've never done it because I can't be bothered. I just wondered whether there was an easier way of doing it on the 997.

    I admit, as questions go, it's fairly dull.

    From what I read in the 997 driver's manual, you just have to take the headlight units out of their pods one at a time, and move a lever from one position to another on each unit, then replace headlights.
