If the car is equipped with active Xenon headlamps and has the Active main beam function then the headlamp pattern must be reset when changing from right to left-hand traffic, and vice versa.

No adjustment of the headlamp pattern is necessary for cars without the Active main beam* function. The headlamp pattern is designed in such a way that oncoming traffic is not dazzled.

Adjustment of the headlamp pattern is required for cars with Active main beam. The car must be stationary with the engine running when the headlamp pattern is shifted between right and left-hand traffic.

The headlamp pattern is changed in the menu system MY CAR, see MY CAR.
