I saw a post on TotalMINI

That you flick a switch inside the light

THERE IS NO WHITE Switch next to light Shocked

http://www.totalmini.com/forum/104-diy-guides/3483-diy-guide-switching-r55-56-57-xenons-lhd-rhd.html

Any advice anyone

Ali, I dropped into Coopers in Tunbridge Wells and they have said that my 60 Plate JCW WC50 (built Feb 2010) does not need anything doing as long as you switch the light stalk to the 'manual' position NOT automatic. ChrisD also had the same confirmation from Vines at Gatwick:

'I can confirm that your car requires no adjustment to the xenon headlights for driving abroad other than switching them to the 'dip beam' position rather than the automatic position on the stalk. MINI's built after Feb 2010 utilise a Z beam headlamp that requires no adjustment.'

Hope this helps.

I feel your pain with dealers!!! I have been a customer of Coopers for seven years; I've purchased three new cars from them but the second you walk out of the showroom they forget you!!!

Guess I was lucky and managed to speak to someone in service who could spare me five minutes!!!

You will have to have a good crawl over 'WC next week, we can talk Evolve then....... Laughing

From what Janet found our while we had the discussion on at Berry on Sunday. Facelift R53/R50 etc are the same as pre facelift R55/56/57, stupid flimsy white switch inside the light clister which if broken, results in a new headlight unit.

Now Jack, your car is special, so I think you fall in facelift territory I'm afraid.
