Question Headlight question

Hello,

As you may know I've just bought an UK-spec MV F4S 750 that I'm going to bring back with me to Sweden. My question is:

As the dip beam headlight is assymetrical for driving on the lefthand side of the road, and in Sweden its r/h side, is there anyway to adjust that or maybe turn the dip beam upside-down to get the assymetrical bit right?

The guy I bought it from said it was the same dip beam on ALL MV F4 where ever they went in the world, and that it was adjustable, but I find this hard to believe. I haven't yet got around to strip the light, so if anyone know from the top of their heads, please let me know..

They can be modified for r/h driving, however it is not as easy as "flicking a switch". You must make a modification inside the projector, will try and locate some photos...

I also noticed that the beam also dosen't project out far enough so I just changed out to a brighter buld (PIAA) and it fixed both problems.

What do you mean? Did the bulb it self make the dip beam more assymetrical?

Cheers

The bulb was so bright it lit up so much more area, that I didn't notice any lacking spots......if that makes any sense.

So does PIAA makes a direct replacement part (bulb) for the MV? or do you need to upgrade the system in someway for it to work, like the HID?

Direct bulb replacement. The bulb size is a H3. It was around $30.
Sylvania also makes a very bright one too.
They are definately not as good as the HID kit, but alot better than the stock ones.
