Product Description

By law, at any time - day or night, when driving in Europe you must convert your headlamps to avoid dazzling other road users. This is a compulsory requirement in most countries. Failing to use headlamp beam converters when driving abroad, severley dazzles other road users. It's dangeours, illegal and must be prevented at all times - night or day (inc, rain, fog etc). Remember to remove the converters as soon as you return to the UK. These converters allow you to adjust your headlamps for driving on the right-hand side of the road, altering your beams pattern, which is different to those fitted on European left-hand-drive vehicles. They are suitable for all vehichles and include individual fitting diagrams for the latest 'Clear Glass Headlamps', 'Projector' and 'Xenon,' and 'Glass Line Pattern' headlamps inside the packaging.

An excellent product.
I bought these beam converters before going abroad. They were easy to fit although the instructions looked a bit complicated at first.
I had read that they were very hard to remove but they were quite easy.
Turn headlights on for a couple of minutes to warm the converters up and pull the converters off.
Pick of the thin film left behind with your fingernail (a bit fiddly but not too hard).
Spray the remaining adhesive with WD40 and wipe off with kitchen roll or similar. I had to do this stage twice before all of the adhesive came off.

AA Beam Converters

This product did the job as advertised but I found the instructions less than comprehensive.
I fitted the product to a 2012 Ford Fiesta with extremely sloping clear lens. No help was given as to how to find the centre of the lens.
As an engineer this did not cause me a problem but many customers will likely fit the "mask" in the wrong position.
I choose to disagree with this assertion made in the advert that these "Patented" converters are the only way to effect the necessary change especially the inference that you cannot use "tape" (of the correct type and in the correct position)
At the Amazon reduced price of £3.50 I purchased the product so that I could see (confirm) where to fit the "shield" and to remove any possibility that I would be stopped by the Police for using a non Euro approved method!
The product met my needs at a reasonable price and gave me piece of mind. I would have been disappointed had I paid the standard retail price for what is basically a bit of sticky tape, the largest part of which was not required on my vehicle.

On removal the sticky layer was VERY difficult to remove without special cleaners, even after just 5 days!

These arrived promtly. They are exactly the same items as you can buy from a major UK automotive accessories retailer but via Amazon they cost half the price. Being self adhesive they can only be used once so price is important. I have used them many times before and they work very well indeed. Having discovered Amazon's half price source I will be buying them this way in future.

A necessary purchase, and an industry I disrespect due to the fact that these are unusable after one use (the adhesive is designed to tear off on removal forcing another purchase next European visit). What a racket!!!
When you consider that they are simply 2 bits of floppy painted polythene, the price is just never realistic, although it has to be said that these were the cheapest I could find for this product anywhere (at the time I purchased it).
I have now found that the remaining adhesive can be removed with white spirit & they can then be readhered safely with double sided sellotape! The manufacturers advise against this, but then they would wouldn't they! I can confirm that they DO still work exactly the same, and WILL stay perfectly affixed until next removal (why wouldn't they)???
If (like me) you NEVER travel in Europe at night and are only fixing them to be legal in the eyes of the European authorities, I suggest you try the same... The price you pay really is MORE than enough to justify a once only purchase (not one that has to be repeated every time you leave the UK).

Recommended, but only on the basis of this particular seller being the cheapest at the time of my purchase...

Update: Price down to a reasonable (less than) three pounds Jan 2012, which I have no doubt is seasonal (lets see what they make in late July 2012)...!!! On the basis of this price, I have just bought another 2 pairs (as I have found that even retaping useds ones causes the metallic painted "reflector" strips to rub off (definitely intentional by the producers I think)!
With the price so low (as I write this), we now know just how much profit these things make at (say) the more usual eight pounds a pair!!!!
Im sorry to be so extreme in this, but these things really are such a DISGUSTING rip-off....

I bought these beam converters for my Volvo S40 mainly to be compliant with European laws, to avoid annoying continental drivers at night while I drive in France, Germany, Belgium etc... Some people could consider these are not necessary as they think they will only drive during day time, the day they are unfortunate enough to have an accident at night abroad their unsurance may not work and they will change their mind. Well back to the product it claimed to "Reflects lights to eliminate dazzle to oncoming drivers". I must say that I have carefully read the instructions during the channel crossing, I have been happy to find the "reference" point indicated for my car's headlamps on the schematic, and then stuck the beam converters as per the instructions... Judging by the reaction of the "oncoming drivers" when I was driving at night in the south of France and Belgium during the summer, I guess these converters must not have been very efficient. Then only reason, but main reason, you should buy them is to be compliant with the law. On the other hand I had no problem to remove them from my headlamps on my way back - like other buyers have mentioned - and would even try to re-use them on my next trip... I would give them 2 stars for efficiency, they get a third as they are much cheaper here than e.g. on the ferry...
